Teak hardwood is grown on plantations throughout tropical regions of Africa, Asia, and Latin America. It is considered a gold standard for decay resistance, and its heartwood is notably durable. Teak naturally repels termites and various other insects that typically cause harm to beautiful hardwood floors, making it naturally rot resistant. Most note the pleasantly subtle leather scent that accompanies it when freshly milled. Its superb stability and strength require the tender, loving care that comes with professional installation.

In the Home

Teak is known as one of the darker-hued hardwood alternatives, features charming tones of gold and brown that gently darken with age. Its grain runs considerably straight but has an occasional delicate wave. When teak is left raw and unfinished, it produces an organic oil that gives it a natural shine. This hardwood is consistently ranked as one of the finest hardwood alternatives on the market, costing just a bit more than the other comparable alternatives on the market.

Teak offers a similar cleaning ritual to other hardwood flooring alternatives. Spot mop when spills occur, then dry mop to remove any remaining moisture from your hardwood. Routinely sweeping will keep foreign objects found in dust from accumulating and scratching your flooring. As long as you respond responsibly to messes and implement habitual cleaning methods, your flooring is guaranteed a successful life in your Downers Grove home. While additional safety precautions, such as the application of a finish, are not required, our staff members support any decision that will give you peace of mind.
