Having your hardwood floors refinished is a great way to revitalize the look of your home interiors. There are a few scenarios that indicate that you're especially in need of having your hardwood floors refinished.
The following are six scenarios that indicate that your home will benefit fromrefinished hardwood floors.
The shape of your hardwood floor boards appears warped.
Over time, hardwood flooring boards can become warped due to damage from moisture or from temperature changes. Eventually, hardwood floor boards can start to bend downwards so that they exhibit a concave shape.
Having your hardwood floors refinished will get rid of any warping and give individual boards a completely flat surface once again.
There is discoloration in your hardwood floors.
As time goes on, hardwood floors will inevitably become discolored. Most often, hardwood floors begin to take on a grayish look as they age. They can also develop a grayish color as the result of water damage.
When hardwood floors are refinished, a new coat of finish will be applied to them that will give them back their proper color.
You can see dents and scratches in your hardwood floor surface.
It's normal for dents and scratches to appear on hardwood floors over time as a result of normal wear and tear. When floors are refinished, the surface of hardwood flooring is smoothed down to remove these dents and scratches.
Your hardwood floor shows signs of stains.
Another thing that typically happens on hardwood floors over time is that stains begin to develop on them. Stains typically happen as the result of spills.
Stains cause a hardwood floor to look less clean and new. Fortunately, stains are easily removed when a hardwood floor is refinished.
You are planning to sell your home in the near future.
Old hardwood floors that look worn out are not a good feature when you're trying to sell your home.
Aged hardwood floors can detract from the resale value of your home. That's why it's an especially good idea to have your hardwood floors refinished when you are getting ready to sell your home.
Your household residents are getting splinters from your hardwood floors.
You and your household members probably want to be able to walk around barefoot safely in your home. Unfortunately, walking on old hardwood floors barefoot can cause splinters.
Sanding down a hardwood floor during refinishing will minimize the chances that household members will get splinters from walking barefoot in your home.
