If you’re considering changing your flooring to a style of maple hardwood, come to Floor Coverings International Montco, serving the greater King of Prussia, Lafayette Hill, Blue Bell area. Maple hardwood flooring ranks high on the Janka hardness scale, making it a great choice for areas of your Collegeville home that receive a high amount of foot traffic.
For that reason, you’re likely to see maple hardwood in common places such as basketball courts, bowling alleys, and sports arenas. While traditionally light tan in color, the shade of maple hardwood flooring can vary based on a few factors, such as:
- Its age
- The area where it was grown
- The stain or finish used to treat the wood
Like almost all hardwood flooring, maple is relatively easy to clean and maintain. Just sweep the surface regularly to remove debris and wipe with a damp cloth to remove any spots or spills. Your floors may also require periodic refinishing depending on the care and amount of foot traffic it receives.
Maple hardwood comes in three varieties of grain:
- Flame maple: Has wavy red lines and is often used to make acoustic guitars and other musical instruments
- Quilted maple: Bears a pattern that resembles a quilt or ripples on water
- Bird’s eye: Most common and has a distinctive pattern that resembles a bird’s eyes
Maple hardwood flooring is available in a wide array of grain patterns and shades and is suitable for any homeowner’s flooring needs. Maple is also becoming an increasingly popular type of laminate, which provides an additional flooring choice.
