Wood floors have a natural beauty that adds warmth and charm to any room. As a result, they're highly sought after by homeowners.

Like anything popular, myths abound, and you might wonder if they're right for you.

Fact #1: Damp homes can have wood flooring

If you use the correct version, you can install it in some higher-than-normal moisture areas. However, solid is one version; it's one thickness throughout, and these floors can be damaged by water.

Engineered hardwood is another version. These natural wood floors have raised grains, swirls, and the various textures we've come to expect with solid hardwood flooring.

The difference is underneath. These floors are constructed in layers, making them more stable and better able to handle water.

Fact #2: Hardwood flooring is easy to maintain

Nothing could be easier. Dry mop regularly and vacuum once a week and wipe spills immediately.

You might also want to employ some standard everyday cautions. These include placing mats strategically, using protective furniture pads, and wiping spills immediately.

Fact #3: Wood floors are cost-effective

Solid wood flooring lasts for decades, sometimes up to 100 years, so there are few replacement costs.

Engineered hardwood flooring can last up to 50 years. It's also somewhat less expensive than solid due to an easier installation.
