For today’s buyers, hardwood floors are a desirable aspect of a home. In fact, more real estate agents agree that homes with hardwood floors are easier to sell!
But that’s not true if the floor is damaged.
At Christopher Ellyn Homes , we’ve been working in Indianapolis for quite some time and we’ve seen our fair share of damaged hardwood floors.
And here are our tips for fixing hardwood floors…
For Wear Spots — If it looks like the finish or stain is wearing away in a certain spot, you’ll want to use a fine-grained sandpaper to sand and then re-stain your floor. Make sure to check that the stain and finish matches the rest of the floor!
For Scratches — Scratches from furniture, pets, or gritty shoes is the most common type of damage on hardwood floors. Fortunately, it’s a pretty easy fix. Just use a hardwood floor polishing solution that also reduces the appearance of scratches. For deeper scratches, you might need to get the sanding materials back out.
For Gouges — If there’s a gouge in your hardwood floor, then you’ll need to add filler before sanding, staining, and finishing the floor. Finishing putty works like a charm.
Hope that helps! You can get more details on Google!
