|Specialty Cleaning - Antique Floors
Antique hardwood adds a depth of character to any home, due to the history that lies behind it. It also brings a sense of warmth, with its unique color and rich tones. Antique wood floors are made from pine that’s sourced from old buildings like barns, factories, warehouses and old homes where it is then remilled and remanufactured for flooring and other purposes. It can be engineered in the same way as with other hardwoods.
It is harder, denser and more attractive than new growth woods. This is more resourceful to use than newly harvested wood, which causes harmful damages to the environment when cultivated in mass amounts. This was seen during the revolutionary era where a large percentage of heart pine trees were depleted.
Antique Hardwood definitely offers a tempting alternative to contemporary hardwood flooring, while providing a historical remnant.
