Maintaining a proper humidity level is key to keeping your hardwood floor in tip top shape

Use a hygrometer to measure seasonal changes in relative humidity levels

Relative humidity levels in the home should remain consistent throughout the year within the range of 40%-50%


In the summer excessive humidity can cause hardwood boards swell and cup.
Use air conditioning or a dehumidifier to lower humidity to proper levels


In the winter excessive dryness can cause wood floor to shrink creating gaps between floor boards. Use a humidifier to increase humidity to proper levels
