Will my carpet mold if it’s steam cleaned?

Professional carpet cleaning services make sure that water is properly extracted from your carpet flooring to allow it to dry within about twelve hours. DIY cleaning, however, can be risky, as too much water can often be left behind. This can cause your flooring to mold which leads the way for many other problems, which can include health issues.

Can I wax hardwood floors that are finished with urethane?

No. Applying wax to these floors will not only make it excessively slippery, but it will also create a film that traps and holds all manner of dirt and debris. Waxing these floors will also make them dull and refinishing may be your only option after that.

Should my ceramic tile be sealed?

If you have glazed tiles, there's no need to add a sealer. For unglazed tiles, your installers can use a penetrating sealant to both the tile and the grout. This sealant is clear, prevents stains, and is absorbed into the surface, helping to protect against stains and moisture.

Is natural stone suitable for any space in my home?

Yes. In most cases, we can find a suitable natural stone solution for every area in your home. Even in areas that are prone to dampness, humidity, and spills. Natural stone is known for its extensive variety in options that matter most, and adding great value to every home it’s installed in.

Is luxury vinyl flooring a good option for my basement?

If you choose a quality waterproof luxury vinyl, basement installation is no problem. Even in areas that are more prone to moisture than others, we can recommend a great product that will also give you the lifespan you need.
