At Loudoun Valley Floors, we offer an exceptional hardwood floor refinishing service that may be of great benefit to many of our local homeowners and businesses. The topic of this article is preventing expensive damage to your wood floors and how this damage can occur. We hope this information is useful to you.

Let's begin with a very common scenario that many Purceville, VA residents who have wood floors find every day.
As time goes by, routine damage happens through the everyday use of the floor. Even the simple of act of walking across the floor can cause scratches that, over time, will break through the surface finish. Moving furniture, including scooting chair legs over the surface, can cause scrapes and gouges that will also, break through the surface finish. So, what is wrong with that?

Of course, a scratched surface looks bad, but it also allows moisture to get into the wood fibers. Other than fire, nothing harms wood more than moisture. As moisture enters the fibers, swelling, buckling, and warping can occur. If the damage is not corrected through a professional hardwood floor refinishing service, your wood planks may even split. In some cases, if this damage is left unchecked, expensive replacement of some planks will be needed.

The best way to prevent these types of damages from happening is to have your wood floors refinished with a new layer of finish, that will provide additional years of protection. Our hardwood floor refinishing service can do this for you, and we can do it for less money than you might think.

When we perform our services, we carefully take the old finish off by various levels of sanding. We then fix any damage that is present, prepare the flooring for its new finish, and then apply the new surface finish of your choice. When we are done, your floors will like new again, and they will also have the new protective layer of finish that is so important.
