Mahogany floors in SouthportThe flooring that is in your Southport home or business can help to create a specific look, feel and aesthetic for the space. But, you need to consider more than just the look of the flooring option when picking a flooring material – you’ll also want to consider factors like durability, maintenance, and cost.

Our team at Floor Coverings International Shallotte can help you find the right product for your needs! Mahogany is one popular option that might be right for you.

Appearance

One of the more unique things about mahogany is its appearance. Mahogany has a very rich coloring to it and a desirable grain pattern. Mahogany is a warm-colored wood with red undertones in it. The grain pattern typically looks like lines ingrained in the wood, helping to create texture and pattern. Those who love warm colors and want a rich, darker look to their flooring will love the look of mahogany wood floors.

Durability

Another advantage to mahogany floors is that most types are extremely durable. This makes it a good choice for high-traffic areas or homes where there are children and pets present. However, it is important to keep in mind that there are different species of mahogany, and each have their own hardness rating. For example, genuine mahogany has a Janka hardness rating of 800, whereas African and Honduran Mahogany have a hardness rating of 1100 and Santos mahogany has a rating of 2400.

Maintenance

Mahogany flooring is relatively easy to maintain. It should be dry dusted every few days to remove dirt and dust. As needed, a wood cleaner can be used to help increase the shine of the floor and get it looking its best. Outside of that, the floor does not need any other routine maintenance, making it easy to care for.
