Hardwood floors are a beautiful and timeless addition to any home, but like all things, they are subject to wear and tear over time. Even with careful protection, hardwood floors will eventually need to be refinished. That’s where Teddy Hardwood Flooring comes in.
1. Water Damage
Water damage is one of the most common issues that can cause serious damage to hardwood floors. Even small amounts of water can lead to warping, cupping, or buckling of the wood, which may require replacement. If the damage is less severe, sanding and refinishing can often fix the issue. It’s important to address water damage as soon as possible to avoid more costly repairs down the line.
2. Gouges And Chipping
In addition to water damage, hardwood floors are also susceptible to scratches, gouges, and chipping. These types of damage can let water seep into the wood and cause structural damage over time. In homes with children and pets, these types of damage are even more likely to occur. If you notice any deep scratches or large chips, it’s important to address them promptly to prevent further damage.
3. Graying of Wood
Another issue that can occur with hardwood floors is graying or discoloration. If you notice sections of your floor beginning to look gray, it’s a sign that the polyurethane finish has begun to wear off and the wood is starting to oxidize. This discoloration can eventually turn black if left untreated, and the more discolored the floor becomes, the more structural damage is occurring.
If you notice any gray spots on your hardwood floors, it’s important to refinish them as soon as possible to avoid more serious damage. Looking for top-quality flooring services?
