Humidity Control for Engineered Wood Flooring

Maintain your humidity levels consistently throughout the year to keep your hardwood floors in proper shape.

Proper humidity levels should be between 35-48%.

  • Excessive humidity can cause hardwood boards to swell and cup. Use air conditioning or a dehumidifier to lower humidity to proper levels.
  • Excessive dryness can cause wood floors to shrink creating gaps between floor boards. Use a humidifier to increase humidity to proper levels.
  • Maintaining proper humidity levels in your home can help extend the life of your hardwood while keeping it looking beautiful for years to come.
