Chris Wakoko

I’m Chris Wakoko, an animal and DIY enthusiast. I founded Floorsum to share my experiences and knowledge in fixing the issues we experience on floors in all types of buildings. Growing up in rural Iowa, my family and I had cornfields which I tended to as a young man. That developed my interest in insects and animals in general. We kept bees on the farm and some goldfish in a small fish tank in my father’s office. I also became skilled with tools and machines in general. When I moved to Seattle, Washington, for college, I further developed my interest in insects and other animals. Besides my finance degree at Seattle University, I put my skills to use in many areas, including making and maintaining aquariums, beehives, and houses. I have since worked with many experts in the fields of farming, animal and plant care, hobbyists, and others. The blogs I create have helped thousands of people solve problems and start successful business ventures.
