Honoring Memorial Day

Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

 

Besides being the unofficial beginning of summer, Memorial Day is a day where families and friends assemble for picnics, cookouts and barbeques, boaters take to the waters and enjoy a day out in the sun,  cities throughout the country hold parades and events and many stores even offer discounts on their products, but Memorial Day is also a day where we remember and honor our men and women who have died in the service of their country.  On this day, American flags are lowered to half staff until noon, flowers are placed on loved ones graves and a moment of silence is observed at 3:00 p.m.  Rivera’s Flooring, Kitchens & More is owned by a vet and he has family members who served in the Korean and Vietnam Wars, which is why he proudly offers a 10% discount off materials to all veterans.  Rivera’s wishes everyone a blessed and safe holiday and echoes the words of renowned poet, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, “Yours has the suffering been, the memory shall be ours.”

Getting Ready for Fall!!!

Now that school is back in session, we parents have a little more time to ourselves to take care of the things we have been neglecting all summer. Just like the children, our floors require care and need to be babied at times. Wood floors, such as engineered hardwood and laminate, expand and contract due to heat and humidity. Unfortunately, the summers in Florida are not wood friendly so it is up to the homeowner to ensure that they maintain a suitable, constant temperature inside their home. You should never let the temperature in your home rise above 80 degrees, but it is advisable to set your thermostat to 78 degrees. Of course, cooler is always better because it cuts down on the amount of expansion your wood floors get.

Vinyl and carpet are affected by expansion and contraction too although not as much. The majority of vinyl today is designed to be a floating floor, whether it has a locking system or whether it’s sheet goods, and is temperature sensitive. Similarly, the backing on your carpet reacts to temperature also. It is possible for your carpet to loosen and show wrinkles if it experiences extreme temperatures. This is why it is very important to maintain a comfortable, constant temperature in your home; if you do, you will get more life out of your floor which keeps more money in your pocket.

Now that fall is right around the corner, it will be a little easier to maintain the beauty of your floor. If you are not happy with your current floors or are simply looking for an upgrade, let us provide those services for you. Give us a call and let us give you “Your best experience with a contractor…”
