Wire Brushed Hardwood Flooring

Wire brushed hardwood is a minor form of distressing, but does depend Video on this pageon the depth of the brushing. Deeper brushing can be problematic in that it can snag everyday dust and in the case of household pets; hair. Board edges along the long side can also create splintering after the installation.

The actual process often involves a wire brushing procedure seen in the images below. In the process, wire brushes are designed to remove the soft portion of the hardwood in what is termed spring wood; the softer part. However some techinques do more than just remove the spring wood as they etch even deeper into the grain (second image).

The end result with deeper or more aggressive brushing is seen in the second image. A softer more subtle brushing takes just enough of the soft wood resulting in a smoother appearance and feel in the third image.
