Few hardwood floor manufacturers have been able to satisfy consumer market demands for style and quality while also adhering to strict environmental guidelines.

But Mullican Flooring has managed to hit the mark.

Originally known for unfinished solid flooring cultivated from Appalachian forests, Mullican has since grown into an international competitor with a broad range of prefinished, engineered and exotic products cultivated from around the globe.

Mullican features a complete line of prefinished solid flooring that includes oak, maple, walnut, hickory and beech species. The prefinished selections also offer character grade options, highlighting the knots, color variations and mineral streaks that naturally appear in the wood. Additional options include hand-sculpted and wire-brushed products for a more unique, customized look. Mullican offers many widths in both its unfinished and prefinished solid flooring, including 2 1/4-, 3-, 3 1/4-, 4-, and 5-inch options, along with a selection of exotic species.

Mullican’s prefinished engineered products are available in hickory, maple, oak and walnut, as well as a number of exotic species. These products are offered in 1/2-, 3/8-, 5/8-, and 9/16-inch thicknesses, and with 3-, 5-, 6-, 7-, 7.44-, and 9.45-inch width options. They also feature a variety of surface treatments and color combinations.

LAUZON's Polynium + with Titanium Traffic finish is standard on ALL PRODUCTS. Renowned for its exceptional clarity and resistance to damage, it allows the wood's original beauty and vibrancy to shine . 

Pre finished solid hardwood flooring is unmatched for its extraordinary beauty and timeless elegance. The precise milling and expert craftsmanship of a Lauzon solid hardwood floor will ensure a problem-free installation when installed on and above grade level.

Engineered hardwood floors combines the classic appearance of solid hardwood with the added benefit of technology to create more stability in any area of your home. Engineered floors are generally faster to install. They offers greater stability under humid conditions such as in kitchens. They are suitable for condominiums and basements and any installation over a concrete slab. They allows for wider and longer planks which is a popular choice in expansive spaces. Some Lauzon engineered floors are available with a square edge or perfectly milled Micro-V edge.

Hardwood Flooring care 

Floor mats are a wonderful thing when it comes to hardwood floors. Tiny particles, like dirt, can act like sandpaper and scratch your wood. By placing a floor mat at each entryway and encouraging family members and guests to wipe their feet, the majority of dirt and grime will remain on the mat. Also put a floor mat or rug in any area where water could be splashed — like near the kitchen sink. This will hinder any possible water damage.
  Note that rubber-backed or non-ventilated floor mats or rugs can damage your floor. Instead use floor mats or rugs made especially for hardwood floors and be sure to shake them out regularly.
 Whistle While You Work
  Along with a hardwood floor comes the responsibility of keeping it clean. The better care you take, the longer your floor will maintain its original beauty. Step one is to purchase a high quality broom so that you can sweep your floor regularly of dirt, dust and other particles.
  Second step is a vacuum cleaner without a beater bar, to get in between the boards and other hard to reach areas.
  Deeper cleaning techniques vary depending on the installation and finish of your hardwood floor. For “Finish in Place” hardwood floors, using an 8”x14” terrycloth mop with a rotating head that makes cleaning corners, under cabinets and along base boards as simple as pie is recommeded
  Professional cleaning products recommended by your flooring retailer can be used to remove tough stains and spills without dulling the finish of your wood floor. Makers of “Pre-finished” floors recommend their own specific products for routine maintenance. Check with your retailer for details.
 Do and Don'ts
  Don't wax a wood floor with a urethane finish
  Do use cleaners that won't leave a film or residue
  Don't use ammonia cleaners or oil soaps on a wood floor — they'll dull the finish and affect your ability to recoat later.
  Do use a professional hardwood floor cleaner to remove occasional scuffs and heel marks (just spray some cleaner on a cloth and rub the stained area lightly)
  Don't wet mop or use excessive water to clean your floor (wood naturally expands when it's wet and can cause your floor to crack or splinter). For information on steam cleaning hardwood floors, see The official blog of the World Floor Covering Association Floor Talk . 
  Do clean sticky spots with a damp towel or sponge
  Do minimize water exposure and clean spills immediately
 Go Deep 
  If and when your hardwood floor begins to look like it belongs beneath the feet of gold miners in an old western saloon, it's time to consider screening and recoating.
  Screening is the process used to abrade or grind down your floor's polyurethane finish. Next, fresh coats of urethane are applied. The result is a rejuvenated floor that looks as good as the day it was installed!
  If the damage to your hardwood floor is severe, then you may require sanding and refinishing. This process involves sanding your floor down to the bare wood and refinishing it. Only go to this effort if screening and recoating doesn't solve your problem. Replacement boards may be available so you don't have to refinish the entire area. Be sure to go pro whenever you have work done on your hardwood floors!
 Protect Your Investment 
  All hardwood floors fade or change shades over time. Like our own skin, wood's exposure to sunlight may greatly increase this process and cause permanent damage.
  Window treatments are recommended to shade your floors from the sun's harsh rays. We also recommend rotating area rugs and furniture regularly, allowing wood floors to age evenly from UV exposure.
  To avoid permanent marks and scratches, it's a good idea to cover furniture and table legs with flannel protectors. Be careful when moving heavy objects across your floor to avoid scuffing.
  Ladies — your stiletto heels may be fashionable, but what's not in fashion (or covered by your warranty) are the dents and scratches they cause to wood floors. Likewise, trim your pet's nails regularly and keep any and all other sharp objects away from your floors.
  Love your floors and your floors will love you back for a long, long time
