Hardwood floors are among the most popular flooring choices due to their elegance and beauty. However, they do need regular upkeep in order to keep that beauty, and they will eventually reach a point at which they need to be refinished. Here at Wright’s Carpet and Flooring, we know that you want to keep your hardwood floors looking their best, and to help you do that, we have put together this list of signs that it’s time for floor refinishing.
- Abundant Scratches. We’ll start with the most obvious sign, which is an abundance of scratches. Now, it’s inevitable that your hardwood floor will be subject to a few scratches over the course of its life, but when your floors have collected dozens of them, it’s probably time to start thinking about floor refinishing. Our team at Wright’s Carpet and Flooring will get your floor looking as good as new, and even provide tips on how to prevent scratches in the future.
- Even if your floor is still perfectly smooth, you can still benefit from floor refinishing to correct other problems. One such problem is fading, which is caused by overexposure to UV rays. If your floors are starting to lose their color saturation, you can call our team to refinish them and restore their beautiful vibrancy.
- The third warning sign that we at Wright’s Carpet and Flooring want to point out is warping of the boards. This issue is caused by your boards absorbing moisture, which then expands and contracts with the changing temperature and forces the boards to move with it. Warping can look like boards separating from each other or getting out of level with the rest of the floor. If you notice this happening in your home, then it’s definitely time to call our team for floor refinishing.
