Hardwood Floor Repair Issues: a Primer

Posted on December 29th, 2011 In: Articles, Wood Floor Repairs Articles

A hardwood floor is a beautiful and lasting investment, but can lose value quickly if allowed to fall into poor condition.  Even more alarming, this fall in value can actually affect the market price of other components of a house.  For example, prospective home buyers will be willing to pay less for those gorgeous new kitchen cabinets if they are hanging above a floor that looks the worse for wear.  This means that it is of paramount importance to keep your wooden floors in excellent condition at all times, since having them repaired at the “last minute” prior to listing a property for sale can cause you to miss the market high in your area – a high that may not come around again for many years.

Scratches are the most basic kind of damage to a wooden floor.  Fortunately, scratches and other marks can easily be removed by professional wood floor restoration companies.  This should be done periodically to keep floors looking as good as new.

Another kind of repair consists of eliminating squeaky areas.  These can result from winter conditions, which cause wood to contract slightly so that boards begin to slide along nails rather than being gripped firmly.  Gaps are another issue that can develop in the winter due to seasonal floorboard shrinkage.  There are simple, do-it-yourself techniques for repairing squeaky areas, but hardwood floor sanding to remove scratches should always be performed by a qualified professional firm with experience so that you get the best possible results.
