Hard surface flooring covers any type of flooring outside of area rugs or carpet. It's really a very wide category ranging from traditional ceramic tiles to new luxury vinyl, interlocking wood-like planks. While each type of hard surface flooring brings a different look and style to your home, all of them bring a few positive benefits that any homeowner should consider.
Three benefits to hard surface floors
1. Easy maintenanceWhen you have a hard surface floor, you have very few cleaning worries. Keep a mop and a broom handy and you have the tools you need for quick and easy everyday cleaning. Mud tracked in from the dog? Wipes right up. Kids spill a pitcher of lemonade? Wipes right up. Hard surface floors are great for busy households!
2. Durable and longlastingTile and wood floors are able to withstand the wear and tear of everyday life and look beautiful for decades. Different types of hard surface floors have different hardness factors, but all of them are good long term investments in your home. These floors can handle traffic and with regular maintenance, can look like new for years to come.
3. Best for allergy sufferersThe most common indoor allergy irritants are dust, mold and mildew - all of which thrive in many carpets and area rugs. If you have allergies, a hard surface floor is the best choice for you. Tile, vinyl and wood have no carpet fibers or padding to trap those allergants creating a cleaner, more breathable environment.
