3 Ways to Improve Your Flooring in the Winter

In January 9, 2017

Just as your roof can become stressed after wrestling with harsh weather, so can your floor. Precipitation and freezing weather can cause damage from water seeping into the ground and expanding. It’s most intense in the winter, with all the wind and precipitation occurring often. However, there are a few ways you can plan ahead to keep the consequences to a minimum:


  1. Record the moisture:

A hygrometer is designed to keep track of the outdoor humidity (moisture of air) that leaks through to the indoors. Get one of these installed and you’ll know your heat limits and will help keep your floor safe. The general rule of thumb is to try to keep the humidity well above 30 percent. Indoor heating can affect this number.

  1. Increase the gravity:

As previously stated, the condition of a floor usually depends on the condition of the air. So, obvious as this may sound, keep all doors and windows shut as long as possible.

  1. Upgrade the surface:

Sometimes, floors just aren’t as reliable in their original state. Some are especially sensitive to the weather, calling for an additional layer for support. Consider getting a contractor to re-paint or buff the floor to improve its age-length.
