Top 4 Reasons to Replace Carpet with Hardwood Floors

Have you been considering switching from carpet to hardwood floors? You are not alone! While carpet has been a favorite for many decades and is lower in cost to install, there are many pitfalls that homeowners have to consider before officially committing to a carpet.

Don’t stick with carpet! Here are our four reasons to replace carpet with hardwood floors from SVB:

Reason #1: Carpets Collect Dirt and Stains

Did you spill on your carpet? Great… now you have to soak up the mess, pat it dry and go through the bothersome process of scrubbing your carpet or shampooing it clean. You may even have to call in a professional for particularly bad stains like wine, Koolaid, or grease/tar. And don’t forget the expense of having your carpets cleaned annually (or more often with lighter colors). But, if you don’t, your carpet will look nasty.

In contrast, hardwood floors are easy to take care of. All you need to do is weekly vacuuming and dust mopping. You will consistently have beautiful (and clean!) looking floors always. No disgusting stains and smells from carpet!

Tip: We recommend vacuums with a floor-brush attachment or an electric broom to avoid damaging the wood. For a deeper clean, use a slightly dampened rag mop or good old-fashioned sponge with diluted wood cleaner to remove pesky allergens, dirt, and other irritants in a flash.

Reason #2: Carpets Get Worn

We’ve all seen it; those paths in the carpet where people walk the most and have matted it down just a bit more than the surrounding areas. They’re called traffic patterns, and once they’re there, there is not much that can be done to fix them. They are the result of years of foot traffic that has worn down the carpet fibers as well as the pad below. When this happens, there’s no other solution than replacing the carpet. Carpets can also develop large wrinkles near these patterns that require hiring a professional to restretch the carpet.

Wood floors, however, hold up to foot traffic much better. The average wood floor lasts ten years before it needs any maintenance like professional cleaning or refinishing. When refinished, it will last another ten years or so. Solid hardwood floors can be refinished many times, the color and finish can be changed as well to keep your home up to date.

AllergiesReason #3: You Can’t Escape Your Allergies

Your carpet can easily become a magnet for allergens like dust mites, pet dander – and even mold spores – which can irritate your immune system. These pesky allergens can get trapped within carpet fibers and even down in the pad and are difficult to get rid of completely. If you are tired of the constant yuck feeling of allergies, installing hardwood floors in your home reduces allergens that are lurking beneath your feet.

Reason #4: Update Your Home

Do you watch HGTV and admire the beautiful hardwood floors? Or are you preparing to put your home on the market? Hardwood floors are popular due to their beauty, durability, longevity, and versatility. While initially a little pricier than carpet, hardwood flooring is a worthwhile investment in the long run because it lasts so much longer than carpet. Toss out your pesky, dated carpet and transform your living space with hardwood floors that make a statement.

How to Refinish Hardwood Floors in 6 Simple Steps

Refinish Hardwood FloorsOne of the most wonderful things about hardwood floors is that they last forever. That’s because when the surface gets too marred by scratches, dents, and scrapes, you can fix it with a quick sand and refinish. At SVB Wood Floors, we have refinished hundreds of wood floors in the Kansas City area and made them look like new. Whether your floors are badly worn or you just want to change the color of the stain, we make it easy with our dustless refinishing process. With just a few quick steps, we will be in and out of your home in just a couple of days! Here is our hardwood floor refinishing process laid out in six easy steps. And we promise, it really is that simple!

Step 1: In-Home Refinishing Consultation

We start any installation or refinishing job with an in-home consultation with you. We review our hardwood floor checklist with you and help you decide on a stain color that you like and that will mesh with the style of your home. We can mix custom stain colors to get the exact shade you want. We also need to determine the species of wood your floors consist of so we can care for them correctly during the refinishing process.

Step 2. Sub-Floor Preparation

We walk the floor to find squeaks, low spots, and uneven seams. Then we fix them by tightening from below and sanding planks to an even plane.

Step 3: Dustless Sanding

We use the Bona Atomic Dust Containment System® which sucks the dust into a sealed tube that is then carried to our trailer outside. This dust-free system has many advantages:

      • No need to vacate your home
      • No need to board your pets
      • No need to seal off rooms
      • No dust in your ductwork
      • No dust to ruin a perfect finish
      • No strong odors from stripping agents
    • Environmentally friendly

Step 4. Repair Gouges and Holes

Once the floors are sanded, we examine them closely to find and fix any final problems. We fill any cracks, gouges or nail holes that we find left over.

Step 5: Staining Your Hardwood Floors

Next, we stain your newly sanded floor. We start with a water-based stain of your choosing. We test it on your floor so you can see it. Once you are happy with the color, we apply the stain to the floor and replacement base shoe.

Step 6: Three-Coat Finish

After the stain is dry, we finish the floor with three coats of an environmentally safe, durable and fast-drying top coat to protect your hardwood floor from normal wear and tear. The first coat seals. The second and third coats build thickness for years of durability. Choose finishes from low luster to a high gloss. Additionally, we screen, buff, and vacuum between refinishing coats for the absolute best results possible.

How to Prepare for Refinishing

Before you have your floors installed, there is a bit of prep work that you can do to ensure that your experience is fast and flawless.

  • Move Furniture off Flooring

First things first, move furniture off of the area where the floors will be refinished. So when the installers arrive, they will be able to get going right away.

  • Schedule Activities Out of the Home

With today’s dustless refinishing, there is no need for you to leave your home. However, if our team is working in a common area of your home, it may be more convenient for you to schedule activities out of the home. This will make the experience feel less intrusive.

  • Retrieve Any Belongings from Rooms Beforehand

Before we get started on refinishing your home’s hardwood floors, be sure to retrieve any belongings that you may need in the next 24 hours. For example, if you are installing hardwood flooring in the hallway and you use items daily from the bathroom, which is accessed from the hallway, you won’t have access once the work begins.

  • Crate Your Pet

We recommend creating or containing your pet for their safety. Oftentimes, homeowners will even gate off a section of the home for Fido to continue to roam.

Cleaning Your Carpets before the Holidays? Don’t Forget Your Wood Floors

Yes, now you can have your wood floors professionally refreshed as easily as you have your carpets cleaned. It’s called hardwood floor recoating and it renews your hardwood floor’s shine and luster without the cost and inconvenience of refinishing.

Wood Floor Recoating For HolidaysRecoating Only Takes a Few Hours

We can make your hardwood floor look new in just a few hours. Our recoat system removes the dirt and grime that build up over several years of everyday use dulling your once beautiful wood floors. We use Bona’s professional strength, non-toxic, hardwood floor cleaner concentrate which is formulated to be safe and effective on all hardwood floors that are coated with a clear, unwaxed finish. The process is minimally invasive and the results are phenomenal.

Remove Dirt, Grime and Surface Scratches without Refinishing

Often, the scuffs on your hardwood flooring are actually caused by a layer of dirt and grime that naturally gathers on your flooring over time. There’s a good chance a simple recoat treatment is all you need: A few hours of work, two days to rest, and you can move your furniture right back over hardwood that looks brand new. If you have damage like deep gouges or scrapes, refinishing may be a better choice as recoating will only clean grime and remove light scratches from the surface.

Give Your Wood Floor A Facelift

If you thought refinishing was your only option, think again. Recoating may be exactly what you need to renew your floor for several years. We recommend recoating about every three to five years depending on foot traffic conditions. If you’re not sure which process is right for your floors, give us a call and we can take a look and recommend the best treatment.

Make your hardwood floors look like new this holiday without the hassle of sanding and refinishing. Give SVB Wood Floors a call at (816) 965-8655.

Best Hardwood Floors for Dogs

hardwood floors for dogsYou should never have to choose between your family “fur baby” and beautiful hardwood floors. We offer a variety of hardwood flooring that complement the hectic lifestyle of having a dog.

When looking for hardwood flooring that is a fit for an increased amount of wear and tear, it is important to factor in the following characteristics: hardness, glossiness, and color.

What You Need to Know About the Best Hardwood Floors for Dogs

A quick word:

    • Choose floors with a lighter shade to better hide any light damage caused by your dog
    • It is best not to apply a gloss finish to your floors because scratches will easily show
  • Make sure to keep your dog’s nails trimmed

If you are worried about scratches and stains, here are some of the best hardwood floors for dogs from hardest to softest:

Why Hickory Is Great for Homes with Dogs

Hickory, which has a Janka score of 1,820, is an ideal choice because of its strong graining and distinct variants in hues. This flooring option is great for pet owners because the floor boards already vary from one another, therefore any imperfections as a result of your dog’s nails won’t take away from its beautiful appearance.

Not a Fan of Hickory? Try Hard Maple Flooring

If you are looking for something that is more consistent in appearance than Hickory, we recommend maple wood flooring. Maple has a Janka rating of 1,450 or higher and provides beautiful and stable flooring for your home, giving you the perfect combination of envy-worthy floors and dependable strength.

Consider White Oak for Your Next Flooring Project

White Oak has a Janka Hardness Score of 1,360, meaning that the floor is in the middle — not too soft, but also not the hardest wood available on the market. White Oak is one of our top choices for homeowners with dogs because of its strong grain, or texture, which is ideal for pet owners.

Rustic-Inspired Wired Brush Distressed Floors

Wired brush distressed hardwood flooring looks similar to wood floors that have been reclaimed and updated, while still keeping its original appearance. This type of wood is an excellent option, because the inevitable scratches from your dog will not take away from the beauty of the wood. To maintain this look, we brush away the soft portion of the wood to expose the grain, enhancing the definition and character of each plank. By doing this, the wood is more durable since the harder portion of the planks become exposed.

Dustless Wood Floor Refinishing – No Other Way To Go!

room with refinished hardwood floors

Anybody who has ever had hardwood floors installed or refinished knows what a hassle it can be. Sealing rooms off from the rest of the house, having to put Fido or Fluffy in the kennel until the job is done, and even having to take a day off work in some cases.

Thanks to our Atomic Dust Containment System by Bona, we are happy to say those days are long gone.

SVB Brings You the Latest Technology in Hardwood Floor Refinishing & Installation

Today, there’s a brand new way to get the job done without the mess and without all the hassle! It’s SVB’s dustless sanding & refinishing process. No more will you need to worry about having to leave your home when getting your hardwood floor refinished.

We will leave your home as clean as when we started because our machine sucks up all of the dust, even before it enters the air.

How a Dust Extraction System Works

When SVB Wood Floors refinishes a floor, we use a system to sand that actually removes the dust from your home immediately.

Where other sanders kick dust into the air that must be later cleaned up and removed, our dust containment system pulls all the dust out of your home and straight into the containment unit in our truck outside, keeping the inside of your home clean and 99.8% dust-free.

Homeowners don’t have to worry about closing off the rooms to be worked on, covering other rooms and furniture, or staying out of the home. The dust is never loose in your home, which makes the process much cleaner, faster, and safer for everyone involved.

It also ensures a nicer end-result, free of any microscopic dust particles that might get trapped in the finishing process. It’s state-of-the-art floor finishing.

Benefits of the Atomic DCS System:

  • No airborne dust particles
  • No allergy or asthma issues
  • No need to vacate your home
  • No need to kennel your pets
  • Dust does not enter the ductwork where it can stay for months and get re-circulated
  • No need to seal rooms with plastic sheeting
  • Dust free environment ensures a perfect finish coat

No Dangerous Respiratory Effects

Traditionally, when a home’s floors are refinished, a technician begins by sanding the floors. As the top layer is sanded away, it becomes dust that fills the air of the home. Everything in the house must either be covered or removed to escape the dust.

All vents and ducts must be carefully sealed to prevent dust from collecting, and then spreading through the house again when the air is turned on. Sanding and cleaning may take anywhere between a day to a week, depending on the square footage. Even after the project is finished, it is common for homeowners to be cleaning up lingering dust for months afterward.

Dustless Sanding Means a Flawless Finish

How to Protect Hardwood Floors from Dogs

Nothing speaks elegance quite as much as hardwood floors. They add warmth and sophistication to any home. But what if you have pets? Can you still keep wood floors beautiful if you have a cat or a dog?

The answer is yes. It is true that pets are tough on wood floors, but you can take steps to minimize the damage.

Place a Waterproof Mat under the Water Bowl

While cats are typically tidy water drinkers, dogs are not. They tend to slobber and splash water outside of the bowl. To prevent water damage to your floor, place a waterproof mat under your dog’s water dish. It is surprising how many homeowners neglect to do this and wind up with a floor section that is discolored or cupping (having a wavy appearance).

Quickly mop up any water that spills beyond the mat to keep the water from soaking into the wood. Skilled wood restoration is usually necessary if too much water has spilled and soaked through the wood for too long.

Related Read: SVB Wood Floors is GREENGUARD CERTIFIED. We pride ourselves on using products that are non-toxic, safe for children and pets, and they don’t leave any unpleasant odors behind.

Trim Your Pet’s Nails

This applies to both cats and dogs. While feline nails are small, cats that like to race around the house or play with toys can easily dig their nails into soft wood to gain better traction. A veterinarian or groomer can trim your cat’s nails if you are uncomfortable doing it.

Dogs get excited when their owner comes home. They dance around when they think a walk or car ride might be in their future. And every time they do, there is a good chance that they will leave scratches in the wood floor.

To help prevent this, trim your dog’s toenails on a regular basis and place throw rugs in his or her favorite areas. When scratches do happen, a professional recoating is a great option.

Clean Up Pet Urine as Fast Possible

Few things ruin a wood floor as quickly as pet urine. It seeps into the boards, leaves a very unpleasant odor and causes staining. Once a pet has marked a spot on the floor, then it tends to reuse the same spot again.

Clean up pet urine as soon as you can to prevent smells and discoloration. If the stain is several hours old, treat it with vinegar to slow the damage. If the stain becomes too great, then the wood might need patching to make the area look like new again.

With a few precautions, pets and wood floors can coexist. It is possible to have beautiful floors and your furry friends, too.

Protect the shine and beauty of your hardwood floors from your four-legged friends with the tips above.

How Sawing Methods Create 3 Different Looks in Wood Floor Planks

examples how a log is flat sawn, rift sawn, and quarter sawn

All wood floors start with a tree. The pattern of your hardwood floor depends on the species of tree the wood comes from. You may think that’s all there is to it, but there’s another factor that affects the look of the wood grain as well – the way it’s sawn. The way the logs are sawn will have a striking impact on the look of the boards that are harvested.

Cutting Methods for Creating Wood Planks

There are basically three common methods of sawing boards from a log:

Plain Sawn

how wood looks when plain-sawn, quarter-sawn, and rift-sawn

This is the most common sawing method. The pith is the center or core of the log. Plain sawn boards are cut parallel to the pith on four sides.

Every board sawn this way will have a unique appearance with various color and pattern designs than boards sawn using other methods. The wood grain is the star of plain sawn boards.

Quarter Sawn

Quarter sawn boards start by sawing the log into equal quarters (picture an X in the center of the end of the log.) Then each quarter is sawn along the flat sides, cutting through the growth rings at about a 90 degree angle. This method produces fairly uniform boards with similar grain patterns.

Rift Sawn

Rift sawn boards are created when the last part of the quarter sawn boards are cut. Rift sawn boards are differentiated by the fact that the growth rings on the outer edge of the log are different from those nearer the pith. The grain on the top of the board will be linear, but if you look at it from the end, the grain will be more slanted.

Cutting Methods for Creating Veneers for Engineered Wood Floors

Engineered wood floors are popular as well. There are basically two types of hardwood floors – solid and engineered. Solid hardwood planks are one solid piece of wood from top to bottom and end to end. Engineered hardwood planks are made by stacking multiple layers of wood together in various directions and binding them into a solid form with heat and pressure.

A thinner hardwood veneer is glued on top and that is the part of the floor that is seen. Engineered hardwood floors are very popular in lower levels and areas where moisture or humidity might be a factor as they don’t warp like solid wood will.

Dry Sawn vs. Rotary Peeled

Two different sawing methods are used to create the veneer on top of engineered wood planks – dry sawn and rotary peeled.
Dry sawn wood and rotary peeled wood

Dry Sawn Veneers

Dry sawn veneers are hardwood planks sawn in the desired thickness of the veneer. They retain the natural grain look of solid hardwood flooring. Each board is unique with no repeating patterns. Depending on the thickness, it can be resanded three to five times.

Rotary Peeled Veneers

With rotary peeled veneers, the log is boiled and then peeled in ultra thin layers using a rotary cut. This is the same method used to make plywood and it creates a repetitive pattern similar to plywood. Because it is so thin, usually only one sanding, if any, can be performed over its lifetime.

How to Avoid the Pitfalls of Installing a Wood Floor in a Finished Basement

unfinished room prep for wood floorsA finished basement can add a lot of usable space to your home, which is why it’s one of the most popular renovation projects among homeowners across the U.S.

With a basement renovation, it’s possible to add a family room, an extra bedroom, a bathroom, recreation room, home gym, or just about anything you desire.

A key part of your basement renovation is choosing a great flooring option — something that will look great, be comfortable, and work over a concrete base, where moisture can sometimes be an issue.

Homeowners who love solid hardwood floors have been warned against using them in a basement setting precisely because of that potential for exposure to moisture. However, here at SVB Wood Floors, we have a loophole that can give you the beautiful wood floors you want, while providing the functionality you need in a basement renovation.

Good News! You Can Have Wood Floors in Your Basement

An even better option is to have them professionally installed using a moisture barrier and underlayment. Because of their multi-ply construction, engineered wood floors are more resistant than traditional solid wood floors, and can be safely used in basements when installed over a moisture barrier and underlayment.

An engineered hardwood floor looks every bit as beautiful as a solid hardwood floor, and is typically pre-finished and ready to use right after installation is completed.

Why Install a Moisture Barrier to Wood Floors?

Humidity levels below ground are too inconsistent to risk skipping the extra protection afforded by a moisture barrier. There are glue-down options that are designed to protect the finished floor from fluctuating moisture levels below the finished floor.

With all of the beautiful engineered hardwood flooring choices on the market today, and professional installation methods that include a moisture barrier and underlayment, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy the beauty of a hardwood floor in your new basement living space!

Wipe Your Feet, Please!

Dog on doormat wood floor wear preventionAre you constantly concerned about kids, pets, and guests bringing in unwanted grime from outside?

Try using rugs and mats at the entrances to your home to eliminate bringing in the outside elements.

Whether it’s water, mud, dirt or debris, all these elements can cause damage to your wood floors, so it’s important to avoid them when you can.

Ditch the Shoes

While some homeowners feel awkward telling their guests to ditch their shoes at the door, we suggest, at the very least, encouraging your family to do so when they enter your home.

High heels and heavy shoes can not only cause dents and damage, but the debris you bring inside from your shoes can also cause scratches too! If anything, try to have guests wipe their feet when they enter to prevent debris build up.

Felt Pads Are Friends

Are you constantly sliding around and rearranging furniture? The legs on your dining room chairs, couches and tables can cause severe scratches to your hardwood floors over time.

Using felt pads on the bottom of any furniture feet can prevent those unsightly scratches and prolong the life of your floor immensely.
