Preventative measures, Tips and Tricks for dining rooms that have wood floors on Thanksgiving Day

Having lotsa people over for turkey day, but don’t want them to see your mess of a wood floor?

No problem, here at ­­­Century Custom Hardwood Floor Inc. of Los Angeles, we’ve put together a list of tips and tricks to use in case of a large, or small, family gathering on this most joyful of days, Thanksgiving. Following these suggestions can not only prevent potential damage to your wood floor, but also make it easier to clean up after the big day. One way or another, there’s always a big mess after holiday dinners, so trust us when we say we can help you avoid that.

 

The key to a healthy floor is to not have damage period. To start off, we’ll describe some preventative measures you can take to help prevent hardwood flooring damage altogether.

  1. The first recommendation we make is to do a major cleaning of your entire dining room/eating area. If you have hardwood flooring, make sure to use cleaning products that are approved for use on wood floors, as other products can damage your floor and stain them. This major cleaning rids the floor of all contaminants that can scratch your floor from all the movement at dinnertime.
  2. Next, you should place area rugs, or one large rug, under the major foot-traffic areas, like the table, and the doorways and entryways. This helps eliminate the chance that these areas will be damaged by most things.
  3. If there are spills, liquid or solid, clean them up immediately. The longer a spill stays on the floor, the more it can damage it and seep in. The less time it’s on the floor, the smaller the chance that it will stain your wood floor. This is why it’s very important to clean up spills as fast as you can, and remember, use wood-friendly cleaning products.
  4. If some guests are wearing high-heeled shoes, especially stilettos, ask them to remove them before entering the home/dining area. These types of shoes can put so much pressure on a wood floor that it can damage or dent it. If this is too awkward, then make sure to have rugs where your guests will walk.
  5. Finally, if you can’t put down rugs or mats, then at least try to pad the bottom of the table and all the chairs. The chairs will be moved around a lot, and the table will have lots of pressure on it from just the food, so these furniture moving pads will reduce the pressure as well as prevent scratching. Even if you can put down rugs, it’s still a good idea to have these.
Now that we’ve suggested a few things, you can rest assured that your floor will be safe from (most) harm. If you’re looking to get some cleaning done before hand for your wood floors, then give us a call at (800) 608-6007. We’ll be more than happy to clean and buff your hardwood floor to make it shine and prevent damage with a generous coating of protective polyurethane.

The Pros and Cons of Installing Hardwood Floors in a Kitchen

hardwood floors in a kitchen

Should I install hardwood flooring in a kitchen?

When considering whether to put hardwood anywhere, especially a kitchen, it’s important to ask yourself if you like hardwood floors or just like the way they look. While here at Century Custom Hardwood Floors in Los Angeles we always recommend hardwood floors, it is also important to look at things from an objective standpoint. Like all things, there are good aspects and undesirable aspects to having hardwood floors in a kitchen.

The potential pitfalls of having hardwood floors in a kitchen

The kitchen is a naturally messy place, whether it’s from cooking or simply preparing food. Along with the mess produced by food, lots of spills occur in the kitchen, unintentional or otherwise. This means that lots of water will come into contact with the floor, and water is not good for hardwood floors at all. In fact, repeated exposure to water can make the floors swell, make them uneven, or even make them rot in some cases. Another hazard is that things fall all the time in the kitchen.

Some, like apples or napkins won’t do any damage to your floor. Some, however, will dent your floor or even poke a hole in it, like a watermelon or knife, respectively. The other inherent downside of hardwood flooring is its cost, but this just comes with the territory.  All of these factors are important to keep in mind to decide whether to install hardwood floors in a kitchen.

Hardwood floors can resist more damage & staining than other conventional flooring types

Now we can get to the good things about having hardwood floors in a kitchen. First of all, the great aesthetic benefits can really make your kitchen look great, a room that is otherwise mostly ignored compared to other rooms. Another great feature is, that despite the fact that the kitchen is a cleaning-intensive place, hardwood floors still resist more damage and staining than other conventional flooring types. The fact that hardwood looks even more beautiful with age is a big plus, because carpet and tile only get worse with age. It’s also a big hassle to clean grout versus cleaning hardwood floors, because the grout can absorb dirt and other contaminants, while hardwood actually repels all types of particles.

Another great feature is that if part of your floor does become damaged, only a small area will need to be replaced. With tile, however, the entire floor will need to be replaced because of its very nature and installation. Of course, even with the estimated pros and cons of a hardwood floor installation like this, the choice ultimately comes down to whether you like the way it looks or not. Most clients that install hardwood in their kitchen do it because they simply like the look better. Some do install it because they feel that the benefits outweigh the negative aspects, but it almost always boils down to aesthetics.

The aftermath horrors of Halloween dance parties on the Wood Floors in your Los Angeles home, office, studio or gym!

 

 

So the Halloween party you’ve been waiting for since Easter is almost here, and you’ve started preparations for it. Only thing is, your hardwood floor can’t stand another major party, with all of the mess it comes with. What do you do? Call Century Custom Hardwood Floors, of course! We’ve put together a list of tips and tricks (and treats!) to help your minimize the wood floor damage your Monster Bash can do to your hardwood. Planning on having lots of Ghoulish Guests with Not-So-Happy Feet?

 

halloween horrors on hardwood floors

If you have lots of invited people over for your Halloween dance party, there are several ways to protect your floor from all the foot traffic and werewolf claws. First, make sure you place area rugs and mats on the major entryways, doorways, and hallways. That way when your guests make their way through your house, your floor won’t be scratched as much. For even more fun, try to use mats and rugs that are Halloween-themed! If you’re just expecting to have a small get-together, then consider blocking off certain areas of the house and restricting the part to just one or two rooms. A fun, Halloween-themed way to do this is to put cobwebs or yellow “CAUTION!” over the door and pretend there’s an evil spirit inside. This way your guests will willingly go along with it and you can reduce the foot traffic.

 

Planning to bob for apples and dance with vamps?

Make sure to have movement-intensive party activities, like dancing and games, outside. The less jumping and moving on your hardwood floor, the less wear and tear it will have. Certain games, like bobbing for apples, should always be done outside. This game in particular is one that spills lots of water on your floor, and you wouldn’t want that. Even minor liquid spills can cause major water damage problems if proper action isn’t taken immediately. Dances, if they have to be done inside, should be restricted to one room, the room with carper or the most rugs and mats. Don’t let mold and harmful germs grow underneath your wood floors – Take preventive care now!

 

Going to watch Fright Films?
When you watch your scary movies, and everyone is munching on some candied apples or popcorn, keep these suggestions in mind. First, always make sure everyone is eating off a plate, and not just their hands. Make sure they have napkins as well, and try to give them beverages that come out of a seal-able container, like a bottle. This way they reduce the spilling that could stain your floor, and you’ll have less mess and dishes to worry about. Place a table near everyone who is watching the movie and eating, so that they can put their food and waste on it, instead of the floor, where it will be more likely to fall. For best results, watch the movie with all the lights turned off!

 

Sticky substances like Halloween candy can become a headache when you try to clean it off your beautiful hardwood floors.  Never use any kind of cleaning solution or chemical on your wood floor other than what’s recommended by the manufacturer.  Otherwise, you can let the professional wood floor cleaning & buffing experts at Century handle it!

Unfortunately, there are a few household disasters that can do a lot to ruin your perfect floors. Many of these household disasters are preventable but some of them are extreme and unexpected – reserved only for those of us with the worst luck! Every amount of effort that you put toward keeping your hardwood floor in shape is a minute that you will be grateful for later on.

Typical Household Disasters that ruin your Hardwood Floors such as Termites, Water-Damage, Dents & Scratches, Mold & Spills

Hardwood Floor Water Damage

Spills, small leaks, and dripping water can leave minor damage to your hardwood floors. Luckily, there are water damage restoration services that can make your floors look as good as new. But there are extreme cases where your floors are going to need a lot more help than that. A burst pipe, major roof leak or, heaven forbid, a flood can cause permanent damage on your hardwood floor (and the rest of your home). Unfortunately, mass amounts of water damage is not reversible and you will need to replace your floor entirely.

 

Mold in Carpets & Wood Floors

Water isn’t the only threat to your floors. Moisture can cause hardwood floors to rot and warp and even mold. You will need to inspect your floor in order to discover mold buildup.  Luckily, you can remove and refinish an area where mold was on the surface of the boards, but if it is underneath, it will be a much bigger task to handle. For this you will want to ask for professional assistance—especially since certain types of mold can be hazardous to your health.

Typical Household Disasters that ruin your Hardwood Floors such as Termites, Water-Damage, Dents & Scratches, Mold & Spills

Wood Floor-Eating Termites

Termites, carpenter ants, and wood-boring beetles can all live in your hardwood floors and destroy them from the inside out. If you notice your floors are exceptionally squeaky or sagging, give them a gentle tap to see if they sound hollow. If so, there is a good chance that you have some pests to take care of. Once again, you will need to enlist the help of a professional to take care of this problem. In most instances, termites won’t completely destroy your floors. But if you let it go long enough without addressing the issue, you could lose those floors that you love so much.

 

Annoying little Dents and Scratches

Just one scratch or cut in your floor may irritate you, but it doesn’t mean that it is ruined completely. However, deep scratches and dents can be a harder fix. It is possible to carefully buff and polish them out, but prevention is the best way to keep your floors shiny and dent-free. Watch out for pets with long nails, and high heel shoes that can constantly be moving across your floors, creating more and more damage. Also make sure that your furniture won’t scratch your floors if it is moved around. If you have shelves or loose objects around your floors, secure them to reduce the risk of them toppling over and denting your floors.

Damage-causing Acidic Spills on Floors

Even worse than a simple scratch is a full blown stain. Paint spills can be nearly impossible to remove from hardwood floors. Also, acetone (found in nail polish) and pet accidents deeply stain your wood floors and are impossible to remove. Your best solution in these instances is to strategically place your furniture or a rug to cover up the spot. Here are a few more wood floor damage repair Tips.

Don’t worry citizen! The Hardwood Heroes are here to take-on your unexpected Household Disaster!

Yielding a High ROI on Hardwood Floors in Today’s Home-Market

 

The real estate industry’s post & pre-sale secret of how to obtain a hefty ROI on Hardwood Floors

When deciding what kind of flooring material to replace old floors with, as a seller, it is crucial to decide upon the right choice to maximize ROI (Return On Investment). If the buyers in that particular market go for cheaper homes, then carpet or vinyl are probably the ways to go. If the buyers are looking for something a little more luxurious or in a higher price range, then hardwood flooring is the only option.  The longevity of a wood floors’ life span alone is a great return on your initial investment for the mere fact that solid hardwood floors or engineered wood flooring can be sanded down, refinished and restored or rejuvenated several times – oftentimes outlasting the homeowner’s lifespan itself! Something critical for buyers to keep in mind is the quality of the actual wood flooring installation. If inferior work was performed then who knows what else was skimped on that could cost you more money in the end.

Underlayment and Subflooring is especially important – it may look amazing from the surface, but if improperly installed, your hardwood flooring could quickly become a huge headache.  You can breathe easy with Century Custom Hardwood Floors, simply because all of work is done right – the first time.  We never skimp out on quality or materials and all of our work is bonded, insured and licensed by California’s Contractors State License Board.  Got questions?  We’ve got answers!  Call (800) 608-6007 to ask us how we can maximize the ROI on hardwood floors in your Los Angeles  home!

Retained value from a variety of factors –  the important being location and basic structure. Though some buyers may not have the best location, they have the best basic structure. There are several determining factors when considering your ROI on hardwood floors, for example:  Homes with bamboo hardwood floors or reclaimed wood flooring installs have a much higher resale value than homes without them.

A small home with custom hardwood flooring can equal or even surpass a larger home with carpet, vinyl or tile. Naturally, this means a heftier initial investment for your home, but it’s worth every penny. In the long run, hardwood flooring requires less maintenance, lasts longer and keeps your home’s worth above others.  Another invaluable factor pertaining to hardwood floors in your home is the cleanliness and hypoallergenicity benefits found within wood flooring.

The Ultimate Consumers Guide to Reclaimed Hardwoods

What is “Reclaimed Hardwood”? It sounds Used and Cheap!
Well, you got one thing right. Reclaimed hardwood is simply flooring that was installed elsewhere some time ago, and is now recycled into semi-new hardwood flooring. Hey! That makes me think it won’t last long… Ah, but you would be mistaken, good sir/madam. Reclaimed wood flooring has the same durability, and in fact, most of the same physical characteristics of new hardwood floors but one: the look.

What’s so special about the way it looks?
It looks old, distressed, dented and used even. But therein lies the charm: reclaimed or sustainable hardwood flooring has an incredibly unique appearance. It purposely is left looking used and faded, and the result is amazingly, beautiful looking vintage floors. Every grain, stain, and drain in the floor is intact, giving the flooring a character of age; old-fashioned but sophisticated, worn but clean. It’s all the rage now in high-end homes in prestigious neighborhoods like Beverly Hills, Pacific Palisades, Malibu, Santa Monica, Bel-Air, Brentwood and West Los Angeles, plus not to mention the environmental benefits on our forests.  The unique look of vintage hardwood floors is priceless and highly desirable by today’s trend setting interior designers and upscale real estate agents in the Los Angeles area.

Wait, What Environmental Benefits?
Reclaimed hardwood is recycled, and thus has little negative impact to no impact on the environment. As well as its minimal impact, it requires much less processing, drastically reducing the industrial waste and pollution of producing it. Besides, being green will keep green in your pocket!  Our expert sustainable flooring services in Los Angeles stand out above the rest and have done so for over 25 years.

What do you mean, “Green”?
Just that, Guilt-Free Wood Flooring. While great for the environment, reclaimed wood flooring is also great for your budget. On average, reclaimed wood of any type is dramatically less costly than new wood of the same type; and since it’s as durable as new wood, it’s a win-win situation.

Okay, I’ll Go Green and get Reclaimed Hardwood Floors but What kind, though?
The best answer is, Any. Engineered or solid, unfinished vs prefinished; as long as the manufacturer produces the new, it’ll most likely have a reclaimed version. So if you’re in the mood for a soft-colored white oak, or a demandingly dark walnut, it’s all here and made available to you here at Century Floors by professional Los Angeles flooring contractors who have dealt with sustainable flooring for decades. 

Will it cost me more to Install or Refinish it?
Not at all. Here at Century Custom Hardwood Floor Inc. of Los Angeles, we treat all wood types (with the exception of bamboo) the same:  solid, engineered,  new or reclaimed, when it comes to customized installations or refinishing of hardwood flooring. If that’s not what you’re looking for, you can read more about our other flooring services here!

Life is not a straight line, Why should your Wood floors be?

Dutch owned and operated Bolefloor Flooring has revolutionized the way hardwood floors are manufactured and installed forever. Bolefloors, which takes its name from “Bole”, the trunk of a tree has created the world’s first category of industrial scaled, curved-length wood floors that come in several species like Solid Oak, Ash, Maple, Cherry and Walnut. Priced at a hefty $10 to $20 per square foot, Bolefloors have been on the market in Europe for about a year now and are set to hit the flooring scene in the states later this year.

The Bolefloor floor boards follow the natural lines of the wood grain, rather the traditional straight lines found in conventional wood flooring boards. While the contour-cut flooring varies in shapes, they are typically cut in 9 foot jigsaw-puzzle like planks and come both oiled and unfinished. When the flooring arrives at your Los Angeles home or office, it comes with a customized map of the project and corresponding numbers of each board.
Not only are these wood floors aesthetically beautiful but they are also very environmentally friendly (green flooring), compared to traditional milling processes – the curved edges in the Bolefloors allow for 20% more of each sawed plank to be used.
