Hardwood Flooring Expansion GapHardwood Flooring Maintenance

Let's talk hardwood flooring and Winter weather. Hardwood flooring is a beautiful addition to any home and is durable and long lasting. With that being said, let's get into proper care for hardwood flooring during the winter months in cold climates.
When the weather turns cold and your home is closed up for the winter (windows closed and furnace is running) the air inside your home will dry out. The drier the air, the less humidity. When the humidity drops, your hardwood flooring will lose moisture. When your hardwood flooring loses moisture is starts to shrink.
When hardwood flooring starts to shrink it will contract, possibly causing gaps that will form between planks.
Low relative humidity in homes is bad for any hardwood flooring. Ideally, the home is humidified during the winter months and de-humidified during the summer months. Hardwood flooring does best when the relative humidity is stable between 45 and 55 degrees. When the home is maintained at 45 to 55 degrees relative humidity, then the hardwood flooring itself will maintain it's intended dimensions and minimize gapping due to expansion and contraction.
Wider planks made with solid hardwood flooring are the most susceptible to changes in humidity levels.
Engineered hardwood flooring, being made with quarter turned plys of wood, are much more dimensionally stable than solid hardwoods so inside humidity levels are not as critical.
The most important thing you can do to maintain your solid hardwood flooring is to keep your relative humidity at 45 degrees or above. Have a whole house humidifier in your home to regulate your humidity levels during winter months. You can also add a single room humidifier in the rooms with hardwood to supplement your whole house humidifier.
If you see gapping in your hardwood flooring or cracking in your finish, low humidity levels will probably be the cause. Keep your humidity levels up during winter months and you will keep your hardwood flooring happy!

Wood Flooring Testimonial

Jeff Dean of Dover Floor Covering is a great professional floor person and has great installers too! We had him install beautiful Chelsea plank flooring in American Cherry 3", 4" and 5" wide random width patterns in our home on Vero Drive in Highland and he did our upstairs bedrooms and loft in carpeting too. In our condo in Fenton we have Mohawk's Eucalyptus in 5" wide planks with green natural renewable materials. We love this floor! Wears well and is a hand scraped style and looks like Cherry or Mahogany! Jeff is courteous and on time and does his best to get in and done with quality and savings for you! I have referred him to many clients as I am a realtor in the White Lake, Milford and Highland areas.

Pattterned Carpet Flooring Testimonial


Dear Jeff, just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful job on our wood flooring. Jeremy and the crew were exceptional. If your are in the area sometime would love for you to see the finished job (after all the moldings and casings were painted). We hope to replace our kitchen flooring next year, if we do, we will definitely call you. Thank you again.
