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 Pearl Properties, we’ve been working in South Carolina 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!
