Why is wood finishing necessary?

Understanding Wood Finishing

The key to understanding wood finishing is knowing why it is so important to finish the surface of hardwood floors. Wood finishing is not just a matter of making the hardwood floors appear more attractive. Although many homeowners spend a great deal of time selecting a hardwood finish which is aesthetically-appealing, this is not the primary purpose of having wood floors finished. Durability is the primary reason that wood floors should be finished. Finished hardwood floors are more durable, more resistant to scratches and easier to maintain.
