Advantages of Maple Hardwood
Maple hardwood flooring ranks high on the Janka hardness scale, making it a great choice for areas that receive a high amount of foot traffic like the living room. Due to its durability, you’re likely to see maple hardwood in common places such as basketball courts, bowling alleys, and sports arenas. While traditionally light tan in color, the shade of maple hardwood flooring can vary on a few factors, such as its age, specific species, and stain.
Like almost all hardwood flooring, maple is relatively easy to clean and maintain. Just sweep the surface regularly to remove debris and wipe with a damp cloth to remove any spots or spills. They can also be sanded and refinished if any scratches or dents occur, which keeps your beautiful floors looking like new!
There are a few different varieties of maple wood that you may encounter in West County. However, when it comes to flooring, you should look for sugar maple (also called hard maple). This is a common species that is also quite durable.
