How to care for prefinished wood flooring
Although prefinished wood is already factory-stained and sealed, routine care and maintenance are essential to keep it looking its best. You can sweep your floors to remove the usual dust and debris. If opting for a vacuum, leave out the beater bar as it can potentially scratch the surface of the wood. The nozzle attachment is ideal for cleaning the dirt buildup in the corners of the room. Clean the floors as needed with a cleaner specifically made for prefinished flooring. Another great thing about prefinished hardwood is its resistance to wine, oil, juice, and other liquid stains. You can quickly clean up spills without them leaving any marks on your floor.
Prefinished: Solid wood or engineered?
You can choose from either prefinished solid wood or prefinished engineered wood flooring. Prefinished engineered wood planks are made from multiple layers of wood and your choice of a hardwood veneer on top. It also allows for you to have the look of combined wood species, creating spectacular designs. On the other hand, solid wood planks are precisely what they sound – solid hardwood cut from one tree. It’s perfect for spaces that don’t have too much humidity or moisture. This type of flooring can be sanded down and refinished as many times as you need and can last for many years. Both prefinished solid and engineered hardwood have solid wood on top as the wear layer and have that timeless wood look.
We carry prefinished wood floors in many different species such as oak, cherry, maple, walnut, and more. We also offer an array of gorgeous finishes to match any look you want.

The engineering of wood is the process of manufacturing different pieces of raw materials such as lumber using heat, adhesive, and pressure to make a solid wood alternative. This technology is the forest industry’s intelligent response to meet the demands for a construction material that is more affordable but equally durable as authentic hardwood. This wood substitute is meant to be used as a base or foundation so that a wood veneer can be applied.
The advancements in the quality of engineered wood have paved the way for it to be a popular flooring option today. At Definitive Designs Flooring, we have a massive selection of engineered wood products in various styles, cuts, and finishes for your flooring needs.Built to last
