Installing Exotic Hardwood Flooring

INSTALLING EXOTIC HARDWOOD FLOORING WILL REQUIRE EXPERTISE. IT MUST NOT BE INSTALLED WITH RADIANT HEAT. WHEN THE HEATING SYSTEM RADIATES HEAT TO THE FLOORING, THE WOOD WILL SWELL AND SHRINK. CHERRY WOOD, LIKE MAPLE AND PINE CANNOT WITHSTAND HEAT OF 80° AND HIGHER.

INSTALLING HARDWOOD FLOORING IN THE BASEMENT? BE SURE THE BASEMENT FLOOR IS DRY ENOUGH BEFORE YOU DO ANY HARDWOOD INSTALLATION. YOU CAN TEST THE FLOOR FOR MOISTURE BY TAPING A SQUARE OF PLASTIC ON THE CONCRETE. SECURE BORDERS WITH DUCT TAPE. AFTER 24 HOURS, CHECK IT. IF THE PLASTIC IS DAMP UNDERNEATH FORGET ABOUT THE WHOLE IDEA OF INSTALLING SOLID EXOTIC HARDWOOD FLOORING.

BUT IF YOU REALLY WANT HARDWOOD FLOORING IN THE BASEMENT, TRY ENGINEERED BRAZILIAN CHERRY FLOORING. YOU CAN GLUE IT DOWN TO THE SLAB OR INSTALL IT OVER SOME FLOATERS SO THERE IS BREATHING SPACE BETWEEN THE WOOD AND THE CONCRETE SLAB. JUST A POINT OF CLARIFICATION OF THE GLUED DOWN PROCESS. IN CASE YOU ARE WONDERING WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS METHOD, IT IS LIKE THIS: THE ADHESIVE WILL SERVE AS A BUILT IN BARRIER THAT CAN KEEP MOISTURE OFF FROM THE WOOD. YOU CAN STILL HAVE WOOD FLOORS IN THE BASEMENT AFTER ALL.

CLEANING EXOTIC HARDWOOD FLOORS IS EASY. YOU CAN USE WET VINEGAR WIPES OR USE A CLOROX READY MOP. IF IN CASE YOU OBSERVE SOME WHITE RESIDUE ON YOUR NEW FLOORS, IT IS PROBABLY CONSTRUCTION DUST. IN THIS CASE IT WILL TAKE SEVERAL CLEANINGS BEFORE YOUR FLOOR CAN RECLAIM ITS REPUTATION. OTHER CLEANING TECHNIQUES JUST REQUIRE LYSOL WELL DILUTED IN WATER. OF COURSE YOU HAVE TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY – EVEN TO THE EXTENT OF USING THE ACCURATE MEASURING CUP AND SPOON.

OVER THE YEARS BRAZILIAN CHERRY WOOD FLOORING WILL CHANGE, FROM TAN OR SALMON TO A DEEP RED TINGED WITH BROWN, UNTIL IT WILL SHOW OFF ITS REAL CHERRY SHADE. SO IF YOU ARE THINKING OF GOOD HARDWOOD FLOORING, MAKE AN INVESTMENT IN BRAZILIAN CHERRY HARDWOOD FLOORS. IT WILL KEEP FOR YEARS, AND AGE GRACEFULLY.
