Why Hardwood

Hardwood floors offer the unmistakable rich character and timeless beauty found only in authentic real wood. It is a classic look that adds value to any home. From rich elegant honey tones to gentle natural hues Carpet Castle can add warmth, elegance and natural charm to any room. Well-made hardwood floors can last a lifetime and longer. While the initial cost may be higher than with other types of flooring, hardwood’s longevity makes it an excellent long term investment. Whether you are updating, renovating, or building a new home or business, our designers, sales associates and installation team bring to you many years of experience.

Before purchasing hardwood you need to answer the following questions:

  • Does it match your lifestyle?
  • Do you have pets?
  • Will it have heavy or light traffic?
  • Will the hardwood receive direct sunlight?
  • Is there direct access from outside or will the hardwood be away from entrances?

Today’s hardwood floors come in a wide variety of wood species, colours and widths. Harder wood species subjected to high traffic are less likely to show wear and tear when they are cared for correctly. Carpet Castle offers exotic hardwood species from all over the world as well as unique finishes such as hand distressed and wire brushed. These types of hardwood give homeowners the chance to express their own personal decorating tastes with a unique visual appearance. At Carpet Castle we love taking time to help you choose the right flooring option that would be the best fit your lifestyle and needs.

Care and Maintenance

All hardwood floors should be cleaned regularly. Simply sweep, dust mop or vacuum the floors with the beater bar turned off to remove dirt and grit from between the floor boards.

For more information on hardwood maintenance visit Kentwood Floors provides helpful how-to’s to maintain your hardwood.


Sweep or vacuum the floor frequently to remove loose dust and grit. This is very important to the long term performance of the floor and its finish. Small particles of loose grit act like sandpaper on the surface, wearing it down over time and dulling the gloss. Regular sweeping or vacuuming will help keep these harmful particles off the floors. (Having mats at entryways is a good way to keep grit off the floor as well.)

Spots & Spills

When spills occur, be sure to clean them immediately with a dry or slightly damp cloth. Allowing spills to remain on the wood floors could damage the finish, and possibly the wood.

Temperature & Humidity

Keeping the temperature and humidity at recommended levels is one of the best ways to ensure the health and happiness of your hardwood floor. Wood is a natural material that reacts to changes in its environment, and your hardwood floor will react to changes in your home. So it is important to keep temperature and humidity at recommended levels at all times, even when the home is unoccupied.
