Wood Flooring in Rocky Hill Ct

The question of the average board lengths is one that is not commonly asked when it comes to Rocky Hill hardwood flooring. It is something not a lot of people think about until it is brought up. The longer the average length of the floor the better the floor looks especially in large rooms. One foot and two foot lengths produce a very choppy and unattractive floor. The box size is not the only way to tell what the average length is; you can have an 8' box with all short pieces in it. Many offshore manufactured products are in four foot boxes with will definitely ensure you are getting a floor with very short lengths. It is not only offshore products that have short lengths but many North American made products as well. One very high end Canadian manufacturer has an average length of 27-29" in their 3-1/4" Select and Better Red Oak.

What is the moisture content of the Rocky Hill flooring?

Moisture content is a very important factor when installing hardwood flooring. You need the flooring to be at a proper moisture level for your home/interior climate which is typically between 6-9% moisture content. Installing hardwood flooring with a moisture content that is too high will cause spaces in the floor when the flooring dries out, and installing a hardwood floor that is too dry will result in cupping when the flooring picks up moisture.

If the Rocky Hill retailer selling you flooring does not have a moisture meter and can check the moisture for you then I would suggest you run. The majority of people selling hardwood flooring know very little about wood and moisture, if they don't even have a moisture meter, that is a sign that they are not professional and know nothing or very little about hardwood flooring and shouldn't be selling it.

It is a pretty common sight in a home office. You have a rolling chair on top of a chair mat. The mat is there to keep your carpet safe from the damage that the chairs rollers can cause. But do they do more harm than good?

There is no question that rolling chairs can quickly wear out your carpet. Because of that you should never place a rolling chair onto your carpeting. They should only be used on a hard surface. To solve this problem most people buy a floor protector which is basically a sheet of plastic that you lay on the floor to protect it. They do protect the floor from the damage of the chair but they also cause an entirely new problem. For starters the carpet underneath the mat is protected to the point that it does not wear at all. When you go to move the mat you have a new piece of carpet surrounded by worn carpeting. Cleaning will help but chances are that the carpet will never match again. Another problem they can cause is yellowing. Because the mat does not allow air to pass through it can trap gasses underneath the mat. These gases which are produced when new carpeting and padding off gas can actually turn your carpet yellow.

So what can you do? The best thing to do is not use a rolling chair at all. Buy a regular chair with legs and do not use a mat on your floor at all. if you must use a chair mat, pull it up often and vacuum underneath it. When you put it back, reposition it slightly. This little bit of effort might just save your carpets.
