Popular Hand Scraped Wooden Flooring
Hand-scraped floors are a popular wooden flooring choice these days. Homeowners love the distressed wood look, combined with rich colors, that produce floors of incredible beauty. Also known as hand sculptured wooden flooring, the style is somewhat more expensive than other options, but can be really special if your hardwood flooring contractor is knowledgeable and experienced. These wooden floor are handcrafted by traditional techniques employed by expert craftsmen. The wood emanates timeless beauty in each contour of wood. Hand scraping gives the wood an older look, thereby imparting a rustic and naturally worn-out look to the wood. While some craftsmen may use denting, scooping, scraping, or roughing methods to scrape the floor, others may just sand it unevenly to achieve its rustic finish. In fact, some of the dexterous artisans are capable of creating the most reclaimed floors with splits, wormholes, and other such naturally appearing markings on the wood, giving it the most natural appeal whatsoever!
These wooden flooring may appear rustic and worn off, but in reality is new and needs to be cleaned and protected from deterioration. Maintaining it is not difficult and involves basic steps like clearing the floor of debris and other particles. Dust the floors with a mop on a regular basis. For wet cleaning, add apple cider vinegar (cleanser and disinfectant) to the water and use a rag to clean the floor. Avoid using a mop because it won’t clean the floor effectively. After wet cleaning, dry the floor with a fresh rag.
