Can you do hardwood floors and tile floors in same home?
Yes. I have done it. First have the hardwood floor installed. After the hardwood floor is installed have the tile installer install the tile. The reason for this is that the hardwood is very firm and has little room for adjustment. An excellent tile installer can adjust the height of the tile to be flush and level with the hardwood floor with little or no seem. When its done it looks beautiful.
Hardwood floors. They look much nicer.
Yes if you're very quiet and you have tile or hardwood floors.
Use a product called "Goo Gone".
because wood and water dont mix! you should never do anything more than DAMP mop hardwood, if its that dirty get on your hands and knees and scrub it
Because the carpet absorbs the sound of anything against it and the hard floors just make the sound echo.
Most hardwood flooring stores sell "T" shaped molding that installs between the last board and the tiles. This spans the gap between the two different flooring types. Works best when the tile and the hardwood is at the same height. If the hardwood is much higher there is reducers as well. Check sites like www.lumberliquidators.com they sell all mentioned molding in various wood species to match your flooring.

Laminate and tile floors hold up the best with indoor dogs. Hardwood floors can be scratched by sharp nails, and carpet tends to stain from the occasional accident.
Use an adheisive remover, should have it at your local hardware store. I used this to remove vinal glue from my hardwood floors when remodeling.
Yes, but first remove the tile...:-) Actually, the trick is to remove the tile without gouging the hardwood floor beneath. Some surface scratching is inevitable while removing the tile but you want to keep it to a minimum. The sanding process when refinishing will eliminate any blemishes that are not to deep.
I have done this and I always have the hardwood installed first. Then I install the ceramic tile. To protect the hardwood floor from getting grout or glue on it I cover the hardwood floor with a soft cover (to prevent scratches) and tape it down. Then place a plastic cover over the hardwood. Then I can install the ceramic tile at the edge of the hardwood creating hardly or no seem and level with… Read More

No, it is not recommended.
A number of factors come into play here in regards to a successful installation over tile. In this case we're referring to ceramic tile. Providing the existing tile is sound and secured securely to the subfloor a floating floor is the preferred method. However, finished flooring height can cause problems with adjourning floor coverings, door swings, entries, and appliances; should they be in the installation area. For instance let's say the ceramic tile is 3/8"… Read More

A church has a rubber tile floor that needs serious cleaning. Can I steam mop it?
You are better off ripping out the tiles first. If you really want to lay the hardwood over the tiles, first lay down 3/4 plywood so you have something to staple the new floor to. The ply is glued down with PL, and then screwed into the tiles/sub floor. You will need to pre drill with a masonary bit, and screw in every 12 inches. Seems like more work than ripping the tiles out. And… Read More
You should not tile on top of a hardwood floor. If you do, it will crack as the wood underneath will expand and contract throughout the seasons. Instead you should be installing on top of some sort of concrete floor. You could either add mud/self leveling mix or cement board. You may also want to remove the hardwood first, if you can.

I think it would come down to personalpreference but hardwood in a kitchen or bathroom can prove to be a mistake because of the water damage & water leakage factor. hardwood definitely gives you more back when its time to resale.
I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THAT MEANS. Sorry.:)
I suppose you could as long as it is solid....
Yes a vacuum works very well on tile floors, just set it on the floor setting. I always vacuum my tile floors before I wash or mop them. The vacuum picks up the loose dirt and and hair from the floor, and it makes it much easier to mop and clean.
It depends upon the type of tile, the area to be tiled, the availability of materials and labor, among other things.
Try windex and a sink scrubber
