We have been talking a lot about how to properly care for tile, once it has been installed, but even the best tile cleaning treatment is futile if the initial tile installation has been shoddy, flawed or is lacking expertise.
Hardwood floors are an investment that, when properly cared for, can endure for generations. It’s not uncommon to see intricate, prewar parquet or turn-of-the-century unfinished hardwood in preserved and historic homes. These 100-plus-year-old examples are exceptional, yes, but they’re still a testament to the enduring potential of a well-cared for wood floor.
