You’ve got a great looking beautiful hardwood floor that’s just been installed and now you’re thinking to yourself how can I maintain it and keep it looking gorgeous? With proper care and maintenance you can extend the life of your lovely new wood floor, the same principles apply to both engineered wood and solid wood as they are both made from real hardwood. The only difference is that engineered wood flooring has top layer of solid wood that provides you with the desired wood finish. Repeated sanding of this layer will eventually remove this layer entirely. However, as you should only need to sand your floor every ten years or so, it’s unlikely you’ll ever remove a significant amount of this layer.
