Thanks to a lingering heat wave, the San Diego area has been on the toasty side lately. With heat comes humidity – a factor that can wreak havoc on your hardwood or laminate flooring.
HARDWOOD FLOORING AND HUMIDITY
Whether your flooring is made of solid hardwoods or engineered hardwood, if the humidity level rises above 55%, moisture has an easier pathway to seep into the wood of your flooring. If there’s too much moisture, the floor boards may even begin to swell, which can create pressure between the boards, leading them to warp.
LAMINATE FLOORING AND HUMIDITY
A mechanical click system made from wood products is what keeps laminate flooring together. As the humidity changes in your home, laminate flooring will often expand or contract. It may even expand to such a level that your floor has a crowned appearance.
