The weather is already changing here in Oklahoma.  The nights are becoming colder and some of us have already turned on the heater.  When the heaters do go on, you will notice that the air dries out in your home.  Many of you have felt the static shock from rugs and static cling in your clothing.  Since hardwood floors are natural products, they carry moisture that will dry out as well.
