Some Interesting Facts About American Walnut
American Walnut is native to North America and grown in several parts, largely in the Eastern United States. You may find American Walnut in areas including Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey. The Carolina's, Georgia, Alabama and Florida, to the South, are also home to American Walnut. Other locales include Oklahoma, Texas, Nebraska, South Dakota and Minnesota.

The Benefits of American Walnut Flooring in Your Home
American Walnut flooring is known to be a very durable wood, one of the more durable woods in North America. It has a Janka Hardness Scale score of 1010. While a bit lower in rating than the industry standard Red Oak, American Walnut is a suitable option for families, capable of withstanding the day-to-day wear and tear. Like other woods, however, remember to take care of the woods, and leave the high-heeled shoes as the door.
Another distinct quality of this wood is its remarkable color. American Walnut is admired for its rich, brown, chocolate tones. While often hosting a straight grain, the wood is also loved for its curvy grain pattern, also found throughout the boards.
Another benefit of this hardwood flooring: it’s easy to clean and maintain. Use a cloth mop to remove dust, dirt and debris. A vacuum set on the bare floor setting is useful too. Use a damp mop for heavier grime, being careful not to saturate the floor with water.
