Pros and Cons of Cherry Flooring
Cherry wood has a unique red hue that makes it stand out from other types of hardwood. This type of wood is great in homes where pets won’t accidentally scratch the floor with their nails, since cherry tends to be softer than some other types of hardwood. However, the good news is that if it does sustain scratches, it is not impossible to fix. Your floors can be refinished and returned to their former glory!
Cherry wood tends to darken when exposed to sunlight due to the oxidization of the wood. To prevent this, you can diffuse the light with blinds and curtains, taking care to protect your floors from direct sunlight. You can also use area rugs in certain areas that see direct sunlight from windows and skylights to keep your floors from changing color due to sun exposure.
With any type of hardwood floor, you’ll want to clean with care and promptly dry up any wet spots to increase the lifespan of your floors. However, maintenance does not require much more than dust mopping your floors as needed.
