Hardwood flooring of all types if relatively easy to clean. In most cases spills can be quickly wiped up and hard debris is easily swept thanks to its smooth surface. You generally don't need to worry about stains, as long as your floors are properly protected.

Increased Home Value

A great advantage of hardwood flooring is that it is so sought after in the housing market. A house with hardwood floors is going to be appealing to a wide variety of buyers, which means a higher closing price!

Better Air Quality

Carpet, which can trap allergens, dust and other contaminants, can make for some poor air quality in the home. Since hardwood will simply allow these items to rest on top of it until it is wiped away, you won't have to worry about long term air issues.

Strong & Durable

Most types of hardwood flooring is touch to scratch in everyday use. It is meant to be walked on and used. While an unfortunate drop of a knife that happens to land just right could do some damage, most daily use won't result in any hardwood damage.
