2014 - 2015 Winter and Your Gym Floor

With snowstorm after snowstorm and the subzero temps, come cold temperatures and low humidity levels can have negative effects on your maple floor.  Brutal winter weather can result in a reduction of indoor relative humidity levels which in turn can lower your maple floor’s moisture content below recommended levels.  Wood is a hygroscopic material. When exposed to varying temperatures and humidities, it will release or absorb moisture until it is at equilibrium with the surrounding atmosphere.
