Check the humidity
The right humidity plays a crucial part in your floor’s lifespan. Warm, humid air can make the timber planks expand, while cold, dry air can make them shrink. Between 40 to 60% is the ideal humidity level. Check your indoor hygrometer regularly, and place a humidifier, air scrubber or dehumidifier if need be. Or even better: make room for some oxygen-releasing, air-moistening and -purifying houseplants! Good for your floor, and your health!
