Need our help?
Timber floorboards are not immune to wear and tear. No matter how much care you put into your floors, it will eventually fade, discolour, or even warp. Here are four signs that your floor may need professional help:
Water damage can happen from a dripping roof, leaking air conditioner, or flooding. If your floor has been damaged by excessive moisture, it will need a fresh sanding, repair or replacement.
Scratches, scuff marks, and other visible damage eventually build up and make your floors look ugly. Professional sanding services can restore your flooring back to its original look.
Even if you maintain your floors properly, discolouration is bound to happen. You will often notice faded floor sections in high-traffic areas.
UV rays can also cause discolouration of floorboards. Lift up one of your rugs and you will immediately see the outline.
If some sections of the floor do not feel flat under your feet, it may be due to warping. Sometimes your floor will curl up at the edges (cupping) or create a bulge in the middle (crowning). Changes in temperature and moisture are the most common causes of warping. With professional sanding and polishing, however, you can give your old timber floor a much-needed facelift.
