Common Causes of Wood Floor Damage »

  • Leaky appliances or plumbing leaks can result in water damage to your floors. 
  • Windows with failing seals or other water issues can also cause stains or damage to floorboards.
  • Scratches or gouges on your floors can be caused by heavy foot traffic, pets’ nails, high-heel shoes with broken heels, or by sliding furniture without proper felt pads on the bottom. 

Repairs for Hardwood Floor Scratches »

Did you know? Walking in high heels with an exposed heel nail will exert enough impact to dent the floor surface.

The good news is, most scratches will occur in your floor’s finish and not in the wood itself. Surface scratches can be repaired with a simple maintenance coat. Andersen Wood Floors lightly sands your floor’s finish and then applies a new coat to restore the shine and offer long-lasting protection. 

For scratches that are deeper and in the wood,  Andersen Wood Floors can sand and refinish the floor.  Our wood flooring professionals are trained to use special equipment that removes just a small amount of the flooring material to make repairs. After the scratches are removed, a new coat of finish is applied to make your floor look like new again.


Care Tips for Your Wood Floors »

  • Only use recommended cleaning products specifically designed for hardwood floors. Do not use vinyl or tile cleaners, or self-polishing waxes.
  • Put throw rugs at all entryways and heavy traffic areas to prevent scratches. 
  • Wipe up spills immediately. If you have wood flooring in the kitchen, place an area rug at the kitchen sink to catch spills and drips.
  • Maintain moisture and humidity levels in your home to prevent your floor boards from cupping or gapping. Use a humidifier throughout the winter months. Keep the environment in your home consistently between 60-80 degrees Fahrenheit, and at 30-50% humidity throughout the year. Significant fluctuations outside of these ranges can result in damaged floors.
  • Never wet mop or steam mop your hardwood floors because it can dull the floor’s polish or finish, and damage the wood.
  • Avoid walking in sports cleats or high heels when on your wood floors, as broken heels can cause significant dents and scratches. 
  • Put felt protector pads under the legs of all furniture to prevent scuffing and scratching. Don’t forget to replace these pads regularly because dirt and debris can build up on the pad, which will scratch the floor surface. When moving heavy furniture, pick it up instead of sliding it across your wood floor.
