Scratches If you are looking at parts of your wood flooring and there are scratches on the surface, don’t worry, it is a very common occurrence and is part of life when dealing with every type of wood flooring.

If you have a particular panel that is severely damaged more than any other, you can actually get replacements that will match your existing wood flooring from places such as reclaimed wood specialists.

Loose Flooring Another common occurrence that comes with being an owner of hardwood flooring is one or two boards being loose or moving when stepped on. Like scratches, this is a problem that is not too difficult to manage yourself, but it must be stressed that you should only try and fix this problem if you are a pretty handy person. The way to fix the problem of having loose flooring is to simply use the handyman’s most used tools; hammer and nails.

Wood flooring is the most beautiful of flooring options, and like anything as beautiful as hardwood or softwood, it is worth constantly maintaining and aiding in its purpose of making your home as beautiful as it can be.
