“How to manage the shrinkage of Hardwood during winters?”

Let’s explore some ways to manage this problem like a champ with NexusFlooring

Winter is the coldest time in the UK with temperatures often dropping below freezing accompanied by frequent rainfall. 

Hardwood flooring uses natural timber that is affected by a change in temperatures and seasons.

During dry winters the hardwood timber loses moisture and thus contracts. While in wet winters accompanied by rainfall, the water can seep into the hardwood causing increased absorption of moisture resulting in expansion of timber. This contraction and expansion can ruin your main timber and can cause gaps and separation. 

Prevention is better than cure, taking care of your hardwood flooring with some simple little steps can prevent a lot of misery and hardship
