Any type of wooden floor is subject to scratches and other surface damages during its lifetime. Restoring the look of a scratched wood floor can be relatively easy, but this just depends on the severity of the scratch. Before assuming anything, let our professionals assess the damage first. Better to be safe than choosing the wrong finish that is not compatible to your floor, or sanding against the grain that will result in even deeper scratches!
The most common hardwood floor-related repairs CQ Flooring deals with are water damages. Having water on your floor will not ruin it entirely as long as it has been cleaned up right away. However, prolonged exposure to water will cause the wood to rot and deteriorate. If the damages and the stains are deep enough, it will require repair that needs beyond sanding, such as replacing the entire floor.
Expansion & Contraction
One problem that is inevitable is expansion and contraction due to changes in temperature and humidity in the room. Wood naturally expands in the presence of moisture and contracts in the absence of moisture. Expansion and contraction in hardwood floors can appear in a few different ways such as cracking between boards, cupping, crowning, and buckling.
Cupping is when the edges of a board are high, and its centre is lower. The moisture causes the wood to swell, putting pressure on the boards against each other and deforming the edges. Crowning is the opposite of cupping. It occurs when the middle of the board is higher than the sides of the board. Buckling is when the floor pulls away from the sub-floor.
