When you choose the flooring that will be walked on by friends, family or customers, you want your flooring to have strength, durability and beauty. Brazilian Walnut flooring has all of these characteristics and more.
Durability of Brazilian Walnut Flooring
The wood flooring industry has a measure of hardness, more like a test that is given to each wood. The scale measures from 0 up to about 5000. Softer woods such as a domestic cherry wood would score at about 1000 and an exotic wood such as brazilian cherry would measure at 2350. Brazilian Walnut is a very strong, hard wood that scales at 3684. This exotic solid wood is exactly what you need for the high traffic that is coming either in your home or in your new clothing store.
The Beauty of Unfinished Brazilian Walnut Floors
The name Ipe was given to this Brazilian Walnut wood by the natives in the region. "Ipe" or Brazilian Walnut is found mostly in Brazil but harvested in other areas of the world too. Brazilian Walnut is extremely popular in the building industry due to its durability. This exotic wood is often used for decking, piers, bridges etc... It is harder to find Brazilian Walnut today due to the high demand for it, this makes Brazilian Walnut flooring sometimes expensive.
Brazilian Walnut flooring is available in various widths from 2 1/4" strips to 5" planks. The wood color is stunning with its light tans, hints of green and brown-black planks. There is so much character in Ipe that it is no wonder the popularity is so high.
Although Brazilian Walnut is strong, it is important to care and maintain the floor as you would with any other. Recommendations are to use area rugs in high traffic areas in the home and placing felt pads under furniture to avoid any unwanted scratches.
Unfinished Brazilian Walnut flooring is simply an optimal choice when deciding what floor to buy. The option of buying unfinished wood flooring is great so you can have seamless planks for an even flow for your floor.
