How durable is a maple hardwood floor?

A maple hardwood floor is a very good choice, as it is very hard and very durable. Maple is the second hardest wood manufactured for flooring. Only hickory is harder. This means that it will be resistant to chipping and scratches, and although no floor is totally resistant to damage, it will be tougher against such issues. If you take proper care to maintain your maple floors, they will literally last a lifetime. By keeping small pebbles, sand and other debris from foot traffic at bay, your floor will keep its beauty for years.
