The Benefits of Walnut 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.
