Sapele Mahogany Hardwood Flooring
Sapele is an enduring wood, though it is not the hardest wood, on the Janka Hardness Scale Sapele falls at a strong 1510. It must be properly venerated to remain in good condition because no matter how resilient the floor is, it will break down over time due to wear and tear. While it shares many similarities with mahogany, Sapele is more durable than true mahogany.
Sapele is native to Africa. As a flooring option, people flock to it for the beautiful grain and durability. One of the remarkable features of Sapele Mahogany is that the grain is interlocked and changes direction in frequent, irregular intervals. This unique wood flooring will accent a variety of different styles of decor with distinctive coloring, and a beautiful even grain.
Other uses purposes include guitar manufacturing for major brands such as Ibanez, Martin and Taylor. Cadillac has used Sapele for their classic wooden interior as well. It even is used sometimes in the neck pieces of ukuleles.
The Benefits of Sapele Mahogany Hardwood Flooring in Your Home
As with other wood floors, the finish on the wood regulates how to properly maintain care for the flooring. Both oil and water based finishing will work on Sapele wood, so it is important to examine cleaning, and care when selecting the right finish. The floor is durable enough to handle high traffic areas without exhibiting too many early signs of wear and tear, but without proper care, the floor will appear aged before its time. It also helps by using mats and rugs wherever possible to maintain the highest level of the finish.
