Resilient Flooring and Healthcare

Health care projects can have both additional risk and reward. New construction projects will have different requirements and obstacles than existing occupied projects. Before you bid a healthcare project, you need to do your homework. Each project is unique and can have special requirements based on facility type, customer expectations and time constraints.

Keeping a new wood floor like new

Installers are sometimes asked by homeowners for their advice to correctly care for their new wood floor. So, The BUZZ asked an expert—the publisher of Hardwood Floor magazine, and our friends at the National Wood Flooring Association, for their advice to share with you. Here, with their permission, is what they had to say.

Editor’s note: Spring cleaning is upon us, and that means floors usually get more attention than normal. But improper cleaning or mishandling of floors can often be worse than ignoring floors altogether. Following advice from Gary in this regard is good to to keep in mind, whether you’re a homeowner or a flooring professional providing guidance to customers.
