In the Reno/Tahoe area, hardwood flooring is very popular with families who have kids. Along with all that “timeless elegance,” hardwood flooring offers a multitude of benefits for growing families. An attractive home is important for many reasons, but we also want our children to be safe and healthy. With all those considerations, hardwood floors are best for kids.
These are just some of the reasons hardwood flooring is the best choice in the Reno/Tahoe area if you’ve got kids.
Easier to Keep Clean
It only takes a few minutes to wipe every trace of muddy/snowy/dirty shoes from your hardwood flooring. And for those times when drinks or bowls or whole plates of dinner end up in a puddle on the floor, cleaning is still a snap. Of course, those kinds of accidents can spell disaster on carpeting. Ease of Cleaning is often the first reason young families offer when asked why they chose hardwood flooring.
Hardwood Floors Are Better For Pets
Raising kids can also mean raising one or more pets along the way. Just like your kids, your pets can have accidents too. Your hardwood flooring will undoubtedly experience instances of spilled water bowls, muddy paws and all the rest. Carpeting can hang on to pet stains and odors forever. With hardwood flooring, your kids and your pets are much easier to forgive.
Health Benefits – Hardwood Floors Are Best for Kids
Allergens like pollen, dust mites, mildew, mold and all the other irritants can really exacerbate bronchial health issues. Especially in kids. If your children are sensitive to any of those, and/or are asthmatic, hardwood floors are best for kids. It’s also free of the many different chemicals known as volatile organic compounds or VOCs, which can cause all manner of poor health symptoms. (VOCs are found in new carpeting, and can be responsible for dizziness, headaches, nausea, fatigue, allergic reactions, sinus problems and a host of other uncomfortable or debilitating reactions.)
Long Lasting Durability
Installing hardwood flooring throughout your home isn’t just a good idea for your kids, they also protect the investment your home represents. The versatility, durability and easy maintenance of hardwood flooring increases the practical value of any residence.
