One of my favourite features in our home is the hardwood flooring. I love hardwood. Let me rephrase that. I love hardwood flooring that is kept clean and shiny and is not completely scratched up by kids, or pets or wear and tear. So that’s the rub so to speak. Hardwood is only as good as the products you use to care for it, and the care you take with it. I confess that I see every little scratch in my hardwood and I obsess over that. Hardwood just looks better when it is well maintained. I am always on the lookout for the next best thing in my search for the best hardwood floor products.
I have had hardwood in every single one of the homes I ever lived in as an adult, at least after leaving residence at university. So my first apartment, when I lived downtown in Kitchener over a cute little book store, was all hardwood. I was not big on cleaning back then, but I did enjoy the simplicity that hardwood afforded me. A simple sweep and an occasional spot treatment with a wet cloth and that was enough to fix it up. I really appreciated that because I owned cats at the time and let’s just say pet hairballs and other fun pet things are so much easier to clean up on hardwood. Our first ever family home bought in London had a lot of really rich dark old hardwood. When we listed that house we had the main floors redone and guess what? All hardwood. In fact more hardwood than before because the agent agreed people love hardwood. We even found a ton of hardwood under the carpet in that house.
