Taking Care of Your Maple Sports Floor
Wood is porous and
can absorb and release moisture. If the humidity rises, your wood floor will absorb
that moisture, causing it to expand. If the humidity falls, your wood floor will

around the perimeter and around columns or floor inserts, plus expansion joints
built into the floor surface. These features permit natural, normal expansion

expansion, which can lead to cupping or buckling of your floor. In abnormally
dry conditions the wood will contract, leaving separations between flooring strips.
