Repairing your hardwood floors is something you have been considering, but you just haven’t made the jump yet. Is it really worth it? Is now the right time? There are a variety of reasons to repair your hardwood floors and a variety of benefits you’ll achieve by doing so. Here are three reasons it’s time for hardwood floor repair.

1. Your floors are damaged

Floors can really be put to the test. From a high volume of foot traffic to playful pets to messy kids and more, there are a lot of ways your floors can be damaged. Scuffs, scratches, and fading can make your floors appear old and worn. Luckily, you don’t need to replace them to make them look better. Instead, you can have gorgeous floors while saving money by having them refinished.

The refinishing process includes sanding your floors to help smooth out wear and tear, staining them for a like-new appearance, and applying a protective coating to help your floors stay in quality condition for years to come. Not only will your floors look great, they’ll improve the overall look and feel of your home as well.

At American Floor Care, our flooring experts can improve the appearance of your floors through our hardwood floor repair services, including sanding, custom floor staining, and protective coating application.

2. You want a new look

Styles change over the years, and updating the interior of your home can help prevent it from looking outdated. It may be easy to assume that the style of your floor is permanent and you must deal with what you have, or totally replace it for a new look. However, that’s not the case.

Repairing and refinishing your hardwood floor can help you change the look and feel of your space because it gives you an opportunity to change the color of your flooring. After the floor has been sanded, a stain of your choosing is applied to the wood. If you want your home to have a bright and cheerful appearance, a light stain can help you accomplish that. For a more sophisticated, moody look, a dark stain is often the right choice.

The experts at American Floor Care can help you decide the best stain color for your home. We even offer stain color consultations. Whether you need to bring the look of your home out of a past decade, or are simply ready for something different, we’re here to help.

3. You want to improve your home’s value

If you’re thinking about selling your home, repairing hardwood floors is a great way to improve the overall look and feel of your home as well as increase your home’s value. Buyers don’t want to purchase a new home and immediately have a long list of home improvement projects on their plate. Refinishing your floors before selling your home allows buyers to admire your gorgeous hardwood floors rather than wonder how much time and money it will take to fix them.

Refinished floors make your home appear more move-in ready and can actually increase the value of your home as well. Even if you’re not immediately planning on selling your home, it’s nice to know that your floors are ready in the event you change your mind.
