How do you know if and when hardwood refinishing is required?

Finding out whether or not you need hardwood refinishing for your floors is actually quite easy. You can conduct this easy test in your home to find out. Sprinkle a few drops of water onto the surface of your hardwood floor. Then, note the following:

  • Does it just sit on the surface? Does it sink in very slowly? If so, you can probably wait several months with only continued cleaning and polishing.
  • Does it soak into your floor very quickly? If it does, this tells you that the finish here has worn away. If there is no serious damage, you can still get by with just simple refinishing.
  • Do you see gouges, stains, uneven areas, or even warps? These are issues that must be fixed with complete hardwood refinishing.

When it comes to hardwood refinishing there are several other things you should find out:

  • Have your wood floors measured to be certain that they are a minimum of ¾” thick. You want to know that there is still a sturdy foundation left.
  • Was your floor initially installed using tongue and groove pieces? You will want to tell your refinishing technician about this beforehand.
  • What kind of finish was originally used? The same finish should be used again because using different finishing products can damage your floors.
