Wood flooring in Wirral rooms adds natural beauty

Though there have been many innovative developments in floor covering materials, many Wirral people prefer the natural beauty of wood flooring.

Wood is a hard-wearing floor covering that is suitable for both domestic and commercial premises. There are many reasons to choose wood flooring.

The environment<-h2>

Wood flooring is environmentally friendly provided the wood is sourced from sustainable forests. Of course, trees in public areas like Wirral Country Park, since they are there for the enjoyment of humans, dogs, birds and squirrels.

In sustainable forests, wood planks are made from trees that are cut down, but new trees are planted to replace them. At the end of its lifetime, wood flooring can be recycled.

Long-lasting and easy to maintain<-h2>

Wood flooring in Wirral can last a long time. If a wood floor looks worn, it can be sanded to restore it. Wood floors are easy to clean, so mud and dirt trod in by pets and humans escaping the Wirral rain are easily wiped up.


Carpets can trap bacteria that can be harmful to health. This is not a problem if they are regularly professionally cleaned, but bacteria will not cling to wood floors and is easily brushed or mopped up.


Fashions for colours and patterns change, but the natural look of wood floors is timeless and not subject to fashion trends. Natural light to dark brown wood floors will be appreciated today and in a few decades’ time.

You can stain wood flooring with a coloured coating. Light grey is fashionable to create a modern contemporary style. If this style goes out of fashion, the floor can be sanded and restored to its original natural colour.


The initial cost of wood floors and the installation may seem expensive, but you need to look at the lifetime cost. Carpet and vinyl are cheaper but may have to be replaced more often. Wood will last a long time before needing replacing, so can work out cheaper than less expensive flooring that needs replacing more frequently.

New wood flooring installed in a home can increase the value of the property. Wood floors can make a house easier to sell.

Water resistance<-h2>

Wood floors coated with a sealant are water resistant, but not waterproof. They are suitable for most rooms. If liquids are spilled on them, there is no problem provided that the liquid is quickly mopped up. Rooms with outside doorways should use water absorbent mats to collect the water that drips from people coming in from a wet Wirral day.

Wood floors are not recommended for high-moisture areas such as bathrooms.

Should you choose wood?<-h2>

If you want a hard wearing, environmentally friendly, easy to maintain floor, wood is an ideal choice. Wood flooring in Wirral domestic homes and commercial premises is a great choice, seeing as it is suitable for high-footfall areas where it will last for many years.

Your Wirral flooring company will show you samples from its range of wood flooring.
