Benefits of Hardwood Floors

When it comes to the look and feel of your home, flooring makes a huge difference. Here at Mountain Valley Floors, we have over 25 years of experience helping people choose and implement the right flooring materials for their own personal style. One of our best sellers is our hardwood flooring materials. Are you considering new flooring in your home? We go over the benefits of hardwood floors here.

Easy Cleaning

Whether you prefer vacuuming, sweeping, or even steam cleaning, hardwood floors make it easy. There are no porous surfaces for dust, dirt, and grime to stick to. This makes cleaning much easier than on carpeted or tile and grout floors. This is part of why hardwood floors make such a great choice for families with children or pets. Even spilling liquids that would stain other materials won’t hurt a hardwood floor; just grab a towel and wipe it up!

More Value

When it comes to your home, any renovation that adds value is going to be a good choice. As far as re-flooring, you cannot beat the added value that hardwood floors bring to your home. On top of the sheer fact that it can raise the value of your home by thousands of dollars, when it does come time to sell, hardwood floors can be the clincher that closes the deal fast.

Long Life

Hardwood floors are very durable. When taken care of properly, the odd dent is about the worst thing that you have to worry for, and even those can be staved off for decades with correct maintenance. Beyond that, they have one of the longest life spans of any flooring materials. This is something to factor in when considering their higher upfront cost, as over time hardwood floors can actually end up being more cost effective than other options once you consider repair needs and lifespan.


Not only are there tons of different types, colors, and styles of hardwood flooring to choose from, but each cut of hardwood comes with its own unique pattern formed naturally from the wood it was created from. That means that each hardwood installation is almost like its own piece of natural art; completely unique to your home.

Improved Air Quality

Carpet is well known for attracting all kinds of dirt and debris, but even other flooring options like tile can catch contaminants in their grout or other porous surfaces. When things like dust, dander, pollen, allergens, or other particulate matter build up on your carpet or flooring, it can drastically reduce the air quality inside your house.

Improved Acoustics

Do you like to entertain and throw parties? Want to maximize the acoustics in your home? Having hardwood floors installed will do just that by providing the perfect soundboard. That is why you find hardwood floors in places like dance studios, music studios, etc. Cork and vinyl are the only other options that offer great acoustics, but then you miss out on many of the other great benefits of hardwood floors.
