How to keep your hardwood floors in top shape through the winter

Winter is a harsh season and it causes all kinds of damage. It can dry out your skin, increase your bills at home, and cause unnecessary damage to your home. If you want your hardwood floors to look good during the winter, humidity is your best friend. In the summer everyone complains about the humidity, but in the winter in order to keep your hardwood floors fresh, you need to use humidifier for them. Getting a whole home humidifier would be the solution to your problems. Here is how it works. A whole humidifier attaches to your furnace and distributes moisture into your home. It will stabilize the humidity in your home by providing a constant flow of moisture, to prevent cracking and expanding of the hardwood flooring. This will make the floors look great throughout the whole winter and keep it in good condition for years. It would be a better option to get a whole humidifier because portable humidifiers would not do the job properly. First of all it is dangerous to run a portable humidifier when no one is at home. Also, depending on how many rooms you may have, you will need to get more than one portable machine. Running all of these at once would increase your energy bill, and no one really wants that. So stick with the whole humidifier and make sure your floors are not damaged during the winter.
