Water Damage

 

Wet Mop_CWater may permanently harm the floor, so it is extremely crucial to not let any water come in close contact with it. The use of a map is strongly discouraged! Pet accidents, spills, and any other dirt that gets tracked in must be cleaned up immediately. Basic Coatings Squeaky Clean or Bona Hardwood Cleaner is recommended for regular maintenance.

Moisture-Related Damage

Moisture damage can be easily seen on hardwood floors and it can easily harm the sustainability. It is critical to make sure moisture does not seep into the floors. Area rugs should be in every section of the home where there is major foot traffic and where moisture is more likely to filter through, such as kitchen sinks and hallways.

Furniture Damage

DENTSHeavy furniture left without furniture leg protector pads (felt or indoor outdoor carpet type) can cause minimal to major damage on hardwood floors. It is crucial to keep the protector pads on every piece of furniture that comes in contact with the floor. Not doing so can result in harming the look and durability of the floor.

Hardwood Flooring Scratches

Hardwood flooring requires a bit more care than tile or carpet to keep it looking brand new. Strong force from your pet’s nails, high heels, or moving furniture without foot pads can cause scratches. Hand scraped finish floors can help mask some of the every day wear and tear. Also, the darker the wood, the more pronounced a scratch can be, depending on how much of the top layer has been pulled off. There are wood stain pens that are sold at hardware stores that may help with touch up. Ideally you want to keep rough play and stomping down to a minimum. Here are some examples of scratched hardwood flooring surfaces. photo(1)Image 1(1)

Each plank is hand-carved and hand-stained in the Johnson Hardwood premium standards. Colors are light Homestead, brown with orange tint Tomahawk, red tint Dakota, and darker Bison taking names reminiscent of the American frontier. Birch’s wavy grain patterns and hand-sculpted planks are sure to make this floor a standout.

Johnson Hardwood manufactures floors to look like custom floors while at a budget friendly price.

Lexington Oak Lipizzan Raises the Creativity Bar

We’ve added light machining and a hand scraped finish to what has become one of the most innovative product lines, the Lexington Oak series.

“We do our best to stay in front of the trends,” says Vice President of Product Development Danny Chen. “The Lexington Oak series finish is something that we are very proud of. Johnson Hardwood is known for our hand scraped hardwood flooring finishes. To add chatter the the hardwood finish was a bit risky, as it’s a more pronounced scraping method. We really wanted to design an Oak floor that looked aged and reclaimed, and we’ve accomplished it with this hardwood flooring product line.” The Lexington Oak series is made up of four different colors including, Lipizzan (gray, white, and beige), Suffolk (butterscotch with hints of brown), Appaloosa (gray with caramel), and Mustang (bronze with chocolate brown).. “Oak is the perfect choice for this type of finish. The Oak wood species itself is a symbol of Americana. The finish adds a legacy look as if the wood planks have been a part of the landscape of some rural place in the South.”Hand scraped Oak Lipizzan
