Wood Floor Repair: Common Damages

Are you having problems with your hardwood floors? See the 3 most common problems and how to solve each one.

1. Dry or peeling varnish

Over time it is natural for varnish or paint applied to wooden floors to dry out and look old or begin to peel. When this happens the solution is simple: remove the old varnish with a good sanding and apply new layers.

To avoid problems, it is preferable to use good brands and products with a longer shelf life. It is also good to carry out the cleaning indicated by the manufacturer in question; to guarantee the durability and protection of the varnish.

2. Scratched surfaces

On the surface of the floor they are also common, especially when you have children or pets in the house; and when the furniture does not have protection on the legs and is usually moved by dragging. These more superficial scratches are easily treated with sandpaper and new varnish application.

They can be treated in a timely manner, but it should be noted if only the scratched place is restored that there are no differences on the floor. If the varnish is too old to make the restoration and you want to have a homogeneous appearance, it is preferable to sand everything.

3. Stains

Stains on the floor can be caused by something that has been spilled or some material that has been in contact with it. Some stains can be removed with the use of specific products without the need to repair wood floors in depth; but when they are permanent, restoring the floor by changing its color can help minimize them.

When you notice a problem and don’t know how to repair wood flooring; talk to the team of a specialized company to be sure how to proceed without damaging the wood in the restoration of the floor.
