There are so many benefits of wood flooring. One of the biggest benefits of wood flooring is when you clean it, it is actually clean. The carpeting may be clean on the surface after vacuuming or steam cleaning a carpet, but there is still find dirt down into the fibers of your carpeting that no amount of cleaning can remove. Wood floors are also terrific for allergy sufferers. Most indoor allergies are from dust mites or pet dander. Dust mites love to live in your carpet and bedding and although steam cleaning may remove some of them, it doesn’t remove all of them. Other fine particulate matter also hides in carpeting such as dander, hair, and dust.
