Everyone loves the classic look of hardwood flooring. From the rich color to the beautiful sheen, your hardwood flooring is what makes a house a home. But after a few years of wear and tear, you’ve noticed some imperfections throughout your home. These imperfections could mean it is time for a refinishing service by John K. Eareckson Hardwood Flooring. Let’s take a look!

What Does Your Floor Look Like After Cleaning?

One of the best time to look over your floor for imperfections is after cleaning it. After you have cleaning the flooring, stand back and look at the floors for any imperfections like furniture marks or warping.

Scratch and Dent

After cleaning your floors, look for scratches, dents, and gouges. These imperfections can be made by dropping things, walking with shoes on, and even owning furniture. If you see more of them than you can count, it is definitely time for a refinish. If you come across splintered wood, your flooring will need to be sanded to avoid permanent damage to your flooring and to avoid your family member bring hurt.

Dull Flooring Finish

Your flooring used to have a sparkling shine to it, but these days, you are lucky if it shines in direct light. If the finish on your flooring appears to be considerably duller than before, try running your fingernail across a plank. If wax comes up off the flooring, it is time to re-wax your hardwood floors.

Rugs

If you have noticed the edges of your area rug sticking to the floors, you may want to consider a refinishing. This could mean your flooring is worn in certain areas of your home. Wearing can be caused by pet stains or excessive traffic. If the finish has been worn away, it is time to refinish your floors.

Flooring Levels

Have you ever dropped something on your flooring and seen it roll away before your eyes? It is definitely a sign your flooring is no longer level. If the flooring appears to be wavy when you lie down on it, it could mean you need to have you have a moisture problem.
