Hardwood

 

 Pre-finished solid and engineered hardwood floors allow you to get the highest quality finish and unique designer looks that will look amazing with your home's unique style.

Home environment is something to consider when buying wood flooring, rooms should be kept at a consistent temperature of 55-80 degrees, hardwood becoming too cold may show signs of gaping, check or cracks on the face of your flooring, squeaks and other noises will be more likely.

On the other hand hardwood kept at too high of a temperature can lead to the presence of swelling, cupping of the planks, and possibly come loose from the subfloor

Mark's Floors carries a variety of wood species, color, and price ranges as well.

We only carry the best of the best for our customers

Cleaning & Maintenance Guide

image89

Use floor protectors on furniture to reduce indentation. The heavier the item, the wider the floor protector needed.

Avoid using detergents such as dish soap, there could be residue or a film left behind, if not rinsed completely the left behind particles will attract more dirt to stick to the surface. 

Hardwood - Water and wood do not go well together. Make sure to clean up spills quickly. Use a wood mineral cleaning solution to help you flooring stay clean and fresh.

Luxury Vinyl -  Sweep or vacuum regularly (beader bar off) occasional cleaning with Armstrong's Once n' Done or vinegar and water do the trick.

Porcelain & Ceramic - Floors and walls can simply be washed using warm water and a normal neutral household cleaner  

Grout - vinegar or hydrogen peroxide is an excellent ally in the fight against dirt: diluted with a little water and left to act for five minutes, it should be removed with a cloth dipped in hot water or for tough dirt scrub with a toothbrush or grout cleaning brush.

Carpet - Vacuum your carpet regularly to prevent soil from embedding itself in the pile. 

Vacuuming 

Adjustable Height — Use the highest setting where appropriate.

Efficient Airflow — Avoid vacuums with very concentrated or sealed suction.

Large Wheels — A vacuum with large wheels is easier to move across soft carpeting. Professional cleaning every 12 to 18 months. 

Vacuum Buying Guide

 SELECTING THE RIGHT VACUUM

 When selecting the right vacuum, adjustable height is the most important feature to consider. This enables the machine to be used on a wide variety of carpet constructions. If your vacuum is set too high above the carpet surface, the vacuum can’t attract the gritty soil below. If the setting is too low, the vacuum’s beater bar or brushes can “fuzz” the carpet’s surface, causing it to look worn or frayed. CONSIDER YOUR SOFT CARPET TYPE: HIGH PILE AND PREMIUM SOFT CARPET. Avoid vacuums with very concentrated or sealed suction. Your vacuum should glide easily across the carpet, making large wheels the best choice. Use the highest adjustable height setting where appropriate. THICK LOOP, CASUAL FRIEZE OR LONG PILE CARPET You may need to completely disengage the beater bar and vacuum with suction only. ALL OTHER CARPET CONSTRUCTIONS Use a vacuum with a rotating brush or beater bar. Change the bags often, and check the beater bars for burs and gouges to prevent damage to the surface of the carpet. If you are unsure about the proper height setting, use an inconspicuous place like a closet to test your vacuum. Its beater bar or brush should just lightly touch your carpet surface.

Schluter Systems

image91

Ceramic or Porcelain tiles and grout joints in your shower are not enough to make your shower waterproof, and must be installed in conjunction with a waterproofing system that effectively manages moisture and prevents mold growth. 

 The Schluter System is an assembly of products that work together in making your shower fully bonded and watertight for tiled showers. The Schluter®-Shower System eliminates the risk of failures due to water and vapor penetration. From drains to shower benches to waterproofing pipe seals, The Schluter System brings everything you need together to ensure a dependable and waterproof installation.

Binding

image92

Mark's Floors offers binding!

 Binding is typically the easiest and least expensive method of finishing a carpet edge. Binding the edge of a carpet involves wrapping a strip of fabric around the edge of the carpet and stitching it in place. The process is done by a binding machine. 

Have a piece of carpet you love but doesn't have that finishing touch? Bring the piece to us! We will choose a binding color and put that finishing touch you are looking for!
