There are a couple of signs to look out for when determining if your hardwood floor requires professional restoration or maintenance. While hardwood floors are more resistant to stains and damage than other materials, they are still subject to the laws of time, and the sooner you fix any problem areas that you notice, the more likely you will be able to restore your hardwood fully. Accidents also happen, and we can help you get your floor back in shape efficiently and at a cost-effective rate. Below are some frequent appearance changes that indicate it is time to replace or restore your hardwood floors.
The most obvious is wearing down on the floors surface finish. If there are scratches, indentations, or grooves that have been accidentally marked into the floorboards or the finish, you will want to get it smoothed out and refinished. There may be a worn down or a discolored area where the most foot traffic travels across our floor. In areas that get a lot of direct sunlight, the UV may also create a washed-out, faded look. These are all signs that it is time to get your hardwood refinished.
Crowning and Cupping
Deformation of the wood and floor are two common signs of damage. Cupping is caused by water damage warping the wood and drawing in the sides, creating a sort of u-shaped to the board. Crowning is the opposite appearance where the center of the board is pushed out and upward. Moisture imbalance within the flooring over time will cause both of these issues to crop up. Our team will be able to figure out the cause of the moisture and help you determine whether the flooring can be saved.
We can also help with floor tilting caused by natural or accidental damage. This may be caused by buckling where one part of the wood has entirely disengaged from the floor, or there could be several other causes. No matter what, we will be able to get it quickly sorted out for you.
There are many kinds of stains, and some are easier to remove than others. Most stains caused by pet accidents or spills are easy enough to clean up due to the hard surface finish, but if left for a significant period of time, then the stain can settle deep into the wood.
Fire and Water Damage
Accidents and natural disasters can create a big problem for owners of homes with hardwood floors. Both fire and water can cause damage that ends up deep in the wood. If you are dealing with significant damage, we will be able to come out and determine if it can be salvaged or must be replaced. Our certified technicians will do everything possible to make sure your floor is returned to its original look.

Restoring the Finish and Refinishing Existing Hardwood
To restore the existing hardwood floor’s finish surface, we will be able to breathe new life into the wood that may have been damaged or misused over the years. Re-coating or refinishing is a great way to remove minimal scratches and dings as well as stains that have not fully seeped into the wood. Removing the old coating, sanding away any visible problem areas, and then resealing with a new finish can usually get the job done.
Some of our restoring and refinishing can be done in a single day. If you choose to use our Bona Restore process, you will be guaranteed a clean, quick restoration job. Let us bring your existing hardwood looking brand new again.
Maintenance of hardwood floors finishes can involve either sanding down a damaged finish and then refinishing or putting a finish over a newly installed hardwood. Sometimes incorrect installation can cause you to have to replace your hardwood floors. We will be able to fix it and save you on more expensive restoration down the road.
This is a specialized process that includes using a machine to clean the area in need of restoration, followed by abrading the current finish and applying a new finish. You will have your choice of finish from the highest to lowest level of durability. The Bona Restore does not require wholly sanding the hardwood, and it usually takes a much shorter time to complete. There is no dust to worry about, so cleanup is a breeze, and there will be no irritants in the air. This is accomplished by using the most highly advanced dust extractor on the market today. The Bona Restore will ensure that your air quality remains healthy and debris-free throughout the entire restoration process.

A Few Tips for Maintaining Your Hardwood Flooring
A well-maintained hardwood can last 20 or 30 years without needing a refinish, barring accidents or weather damage. Below is a helpful list of tips for you to keep in mind when maintaining your flooring so that it will be able to last longer between refinishes. With the right care, you will notice your floor looking healthier for longer. These are general hardwood care tips.
- Clean all spills and pet accidents quickly and thoroughly to stop the risk of them deep staining your wood.
- Use furniture pads to keep chairs and couch feet from scuffing up the finish. This is especially useful in kitchen areas around dining tables where chairs are more likely to scratch the hardcover surface.
- Area rugs are ideal for places with the highest level of foot traffic (e.g., in the front hall, kitchen, bathroom, etc.), which will give the floor a higher resistance to time-related wear.
- Do not wet mop. Use hardwood floor specific cleaning supplies to get it looking shiny and clean. Mopping the same as you would a tile or linoleum floor will cause damage to the hardwood and the finish.
