Here you will find a gist about marble flooring and wooden flooring to give you an idea as to what is a better alternative.

About: Marble is a type of rock that is derived from a material that is most commonly known as limestone. White marble comes from the most pure form of limestone. Marble sometimes consists of different colors, this is possible if there are other materials present along with the limestone. Marble adds elegance and gives a soft look to the buildings flooring, bamboo flooring are different kinds of wooden flooring available in the market. Most commonly used flooring is hardwood flooring. You have a wide range of styles and finishes to choose from.

Style: There are three kinds of finishes available in marble flooring. Any of the three finishes gives a very elegant and a chic look to your home.

  • Polished Finish
  • Hone Finish
  • Sand or abrasive finish.

Wooden flooring gives a warm feel and is considered to be a classy choice among home-owners. The following treatments can give a shine to your flooring.

  • Penetrating Sealers, Paste Wax, Varnish, Lacquer, Shellac treatment.
  • You can give your flooring an oil urethane or a moisture cured urethane or a water based urethane treatment to help your flooring look shinier.

Maintenance:  Marble is the easiest kind of flooring one can choose due to its ease of maintenance. If you want to bring back its shine you can get it re-polished. This should be done after a couple of years. To keep your marble clean on a daily basis, just need to wipe with a clean cloth. As marble is a porous material, any spills can get stained if not cleaned immediately, so our advice is clean up the spill as soon as possible to avoid staining.

Maintaining wooden flooring on a day-day basis is easy. All you need is a vacuum cleaner and a mop that is slightly damp to remove dirt and dust. One of the main issues with wooden flooring is that they are not resistant to water or moist conditions. So any excess water has to be cleaned immediately. Wooden flooring is prone to scratches, so to avoid this, do not use this flooring type in high traffic areas and also furniture shouldn’t be dragged on the flooring. After installation wooden floors need to be re-polished once every 4-5 years.
