A properly installed solid wood floor can last for over 100 years, but that doesn’t mean that they are indestructible. In a perfect world, your hardwood floors would never need anything done to them. But alas, we don’t live in a perfect world and there is a great chance you will need a hardwood floor repair done and some time or another. Whether it is water damage from a washing machine or dishwasher or a big gouge in your floors from dropping something heavy on it, it can be fixed. If your floor is losing it’s luster, you can probably have it enhanced by having it screened and recoated. If your floor has some fairly deep scratches, you can likely need a more involved refinishing process completed. If you have anything beyond those, you likely will need your hardwood floor repaired.
One of the most common hardwood floor repairs we make is when a customer has water damage from a leaky dishwasher or washing machine. Having water on your hardwood floors won’t destroy it assuming you wipe up the water or condensation rather quickly. However, prolonged exposure to water will in fact cause the wood to rot and deteriorate. Depending on the size of the damaged area, it can usually be repaired within one business day.
Another common hardwood floor repair is a gouge. A gouge is simply a hole or very deep scratch in your floor. One of the hurdles with repairing a gouge or deep scratch is making the repaired gouge or scratch match the existing floor stain. The best case scenario is that you have some left over stain from the installation of your floors or can contact your hardwood floor installation company and find the stain they used.
