Many homeowners know about the refinishing process for hardwood flooring, but it can be tricky to figure out whether it’s time to schedule one for yourself. So, how do you know when to refinish your floors?

Let’s look at some ideas that will help you determine whether your floors need to be refinished. If so, we are ready to get to work on your project.

Hardwood refinishing is necessary from time to time

It’s inevitable that after a couple of decades, hardwood floors start to show signs of daily wear. You'll see discoloration, scratches, and dullness, to name a few, and these often signal that your floors will soon require refinishing.

Another way to determine your refinishing need is to perform a water droplet test. Using a tablespoon, drop water onto a second of your floor that sees average amounts of traffic. If it doesn’t soak into the wood, your finish is likely in good condition.

However, if it soaks into the surface, leaving a dark water spot behind, you should contact us for a professional assessment. The faster the water soaks in, the more you need a professional refinishing service.

Both solid and engineered wood floors can be refinished up to several times before replacement is necessary. The number of times they can be refinished depends on the wood's thickness, so be sure to ask about your flooring options today.
