When you first had your hardwood floors installed, you probably were made aware of the eventual need for wood floor refinishing. After all, even the most durable species of wood floorboards in the best conditions require wood floor refinishing as part of your home and floor care routine. Most experts recommend that you refinish your hardwood floors about once every decade, perhaps sooner if it looks like your floors have seen better days. The following are some telltale signs you shouldn’t wait any longer and call Jason Brown Wood Floors for wood floor refinishing service quickly!
Try as we may to avoid scratching up our beautiful hardwood floors, these types of imperfections are bound to accumulate over the years. A couple of minor scratches are to be expected, and for the most part, are unnoticeable. However, an entire floor covered in scratches will be harder to cover up and disguise. This means it’s prime time to call for wood floor refinishing service. Surface scratches will be sanded and stained away, but deeper scrapes and more severe damage might require replacing the floorboards.
Water Damaged Wood
Water damage anywhere in your home is never good and could spell trouble for your wood floors with prolonged water exposure. If your floorboards sustained water damage, then typically they will show warping or cupping. Sometimes, boards with minor cupping can be sanded down and stained again. However, severely warped hardwood floors can pose structural problems and won’t be quite salvageable with refinishing. It’s best to replace your flooring if it comes to that scenario.
You’ll know how pressing it is to refinish your wood flooring by looking at its color. Wood floors that are turning gray indicate the polyurethane finish is wearing off, leaving the wood vulnerable to moisture. Your home’s humidity, tracked in messes from outside, spills, and even residual moisture from our feet, can make hardwood take on the old and gray appearance.
Regular wear-and-tear and UV ray exposure from sunlight eventually fades and discolors our precious hardwood floors. Wood floor refinishing will be necessary to return your floors back to one uniform color, as well as reapply the protective finish to the floorboards. The next time you rearrange your furniture and area rugs, see if you notice patchy patterns across your floors. If so, give the team at Jason Brown Wood Floors a call!
