The historic home that we purchased had all the original fixtures, molding and hardwood floors. Everything was in great condition except the floors. In many areas, the finishing had worn down, there was water damage, discoloration and deep gouges. No matter how gorgeous the furniture or rug, we couldn’t hide those glaring imperfections. Does this sound familiar to you? If it does, contact us for a complimentary consultation. We need to see how bad the situation is. We can replace a few boards in a day. Instead of walking through your home and immediately eyeing the area that needs to be replaced you can quickly scan over your home and marvel at what you’ve accomplished.
The Kryptonite of Hardwood Floors
Hardwood floors must maintain a fine balance between dryness and wetness. Dry floors are noticeable and lack luster. Moist floors will eventually rot and decay. How do you strike that balance? The answer is to use cleaners that are designed specifically for real hardwood floors. Don’t ever use water because water is the Kryptonite of hardwood floors. If your home or office has a high humidity level, install a humidifier in the areas where needed. Many of the floors that we service, suffer from water damage. This damage is usually located near windows. Our team of expert flooring specialists can sand or replace the affected boards then finish it to match the surrounding panels.
We won’t judge and we won’t ask any questions, but that doesn’t mean that we won’t be wondering, “What in the heavens made you place a hot pot on your hardwood floors - and leave it there?” We’re sure that your intentions were good – or not. Nonetheless, if your floor suffers from burn marks due to kitchen accidents, a tragic fire or furnace malfunctions, we can repair it. You won’t even be able to detect where the burn marks were located. Sometimes all that is needed is minor sanding. If the burn penetrated far below the surface level, we will replace a few boards.
