If you are currently doing any remodeling of your home or business, you may feel overwhelmed by the options. There is a veritable cornucopia of options available to you. Potential flooring styles include, but are not limited to, tile, hardwood, carpet, laminate, bamboo, vinyl, linoleum, and terrazzo. A good deal of research and foot work may be needed to properly come to the right answer for your needs.
Over half of the American flooring market consists of carpet. Cleaning is quite simple as well. Regular vacuuming combined with a deeper cleaning at a absolute minimum of once every year and a half should be sufficient. It is the choice for bedroom flooring a little less than half of the time.
Hardwood flooring is a prestigious option. More than fifty percent of bedrooms found themselves with a hardwood floor, but it is the choice preferred by consumers for the living room more than nine tenths of the time. However, the high maintenance upkeep of hardwood should be kept in mind while you are making your decision. You may even need to bring in a professional to keep your floor in top shape should you go the way of hardwood.
Terrazzo is another option you have available. It is a gestalt of materials such as granite, marble and quartz. Before you decide on this option, you should make sure to be prepared to deal with terrazzo floor polishing. Cleaning a terrazzo floor tends to be a bit unusual due to soap often leaving residue and vinegar may leave your floor marked. In addition, certain terrazzo floor polishing chemicals may interact negatively with the particular composition of your floor.
Many Americans swear by tile flooring. It is sturdy, classy and the best way to clean tile floors is easy. Tile and grout cleaning services are available, but many people are able to manage on their own with the tile cleaning products readily available at supermarkets everywhere.
No matter what type of flooring you go with, remodeling is expensive. Make sure you are happy with your choice before going through with it. If you have friends or family with your potential future flooring, I would recommend to ask to see their floors to get a better idea of your result.
