How to tell when your hardwood flooring in Southern California needs restoration

Dec 9th 2015 at 4:01 AM

If you are the proud owner of hardwood flooring in Southern California, you should be aware that the California climate can do some damage. One of the reasons you will have noticed problems at all is that the floor probably hasn’t been properly restored for many years. These floors are so tough that it can take decades for any damage to be visible.

The other side of the coin here is that the damage does need to be fixed. We’re going to give you a list of symptoms, causes and fixes to help you understand the issues and what to do about them.

The major symptoms of hardwood flooring problems are:

  • Uneven surface with some timbers raised or sunken – There can be multiple reasons for this situation, including warping, floor movement, or damage to the original floor bed. The floor needs to be restored, and the moved timbers may need to be re-laid.
  • Pitting, scarring, or other surface irregularities – This is the result of wear and tear, usually in high traffic areas, but the damage does potentially compromise the timber structure. If moisture gets in, the timbers can warp, affecting adjoining timbers. The fix is to carefully resurface and refinish the flooring.
  • Discoloration – This is usually the result of spills, moisture, or other chemical agents working on the timber. These materials have penetrated an old wood finish, which needs to be replaced. Re-coloring and refinishing are required.

OK, so where do you find the right people to do the work? To save you a little time looking, we’ve found a true A list company called Quality Custom Floors, based in Tracy, near Stockton.
