Effects of Ultraviolet Exposure on Wood Flooring
By: Jeff Johnson 09 Apr 2018 Category: General
Just as high sun exposure accelerates the wrinkling of human skin, causes fading of painted surfaces, and breaks down plastic, its direct rays can wreak havoc on interior floor finishes. Even indirect sunlight will cause fading and discoloration of finishes, and the damage is not limited to the finish system. Even after floor finish is sanded off by commercial floor equipment, rug lines are still obvious, but more subtle. The two species which are the most sensitive to UV exposure are AMERICAN CHERRY and BRAZILIAN CHERRY. These woods, though some of nature’s most beautiful, darken drastically when exposed to sunlight. It is well advised for consumers not to place rugs on these floors for a year if the rooms are exposed to direct sunlight.

Consider the effects of UV exposure when adding an additional room of prefinished flooring of the same color or adding a custom finished wood floor with the same stain as before, it will not be a great match at first, but with time, may age to match.

What it is

In light of recent events in our country, we have felt the charge to do something to help those in need. As a result, we have decided to start the Jeffco Charitable Fund. The mission of the Jeffco Charitable Fund is to provide an outlet to which our friends, customers, and suppliers can donate in order to make a positive impact in our local communities as well as the communities in need across our great country.

How it works

We will be matching all donations dollar for dollar up to $10,000 through the end of 2017. We have compiled a list of charities to which we will be donating. These charities have been researched with Charity Navigator as well as GuideStar to ensure the money will be put to good use. The current charities selected aim to benefit those affected by hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. If you have another charity in mind, please submit the charity name and EIN for approval.
