Try to avoid moving anything heavy on the phones. Use a furniture dolly or put castors on the bottom so you can glide it across the floor. If you spill any liquids on the floor wipe it up immediately. Do not clean the floor with water or wet mops to protect it from absorbing moisture. You can use a damp mop but make sure that it is dry and does not stay wet. To prevent anyone from slipping put down some slip proof rugs.

There are many different species and grains to choose from; among them are cherry, oak, maple, and exotics, such as bamboo and Brazilian cherry. Different floors offer varying levels of hardness. Choosing the correct species will depend on a few things. The first consideration should be the amount of traffic the floor will be bearing. Pet nails, toys, and otherwise heavy foot traffic will require a harder variety. Its important to choose one that is readily available or, in the case of exotics, that the trees are being responsibly and sustainably harvested.
There are two basic categories of floors: factory engineered and solid. Factory engineered consists of multiple layers or veneers made up of different types of wood or composite. The veneers are layered in opposite directions to increase stability and to resist the expansion and contraction that comes with temperature and humidity fluctuations. This type is well-suited for basements and rooms with less stable environments. Depending on the thickness of the top layer, it can be sanded and refinished, but no more than two or three times.
