If you are looking for a way to rejuvenate the look and feel of your hardwood floor, then consider refinishing the surface. Kevertin Flooring uses oil- or water-based polyurethane, giving you the durable and aesthetically-pleasing look for your interior and exterior staircases. The coating is easy to apply and resistant to heat, chemicals, and wear and tear like scratches and traffic. Refinishing your floors adds a depth and luxurious feel that you just cannot replicate with anything else.

When it’s Time to Refinish Your Hardwood
If you are wanting to refinish your interior hardwood, chances are that you won’t have to do it as frequently as you would have to refinish your exterior hardwood. That being said, interior hardwood flooring can still face a lot of damage from pets, furniture, and everyday wear and tear. While hardwood flooring is known for its durability and extended lifetime, it still requires a level of care and maintenance to ensure that it is performing to its peak avility. Here are some signs that you may need to refinish your floors:
Water is one of the worst ways you can damage your hardwood floors because it threatens the structural integrity of the hardwood. If you see standing water on your floor or you have a leak, the first step is to dry it out as quickly as possible to keep the damage to a minimum. Of course, a hardwood floor that is warped or buckled will need to be replaced, but if the problem is just water staining, then it can be fixed with a refinish.
Discoloration or Dullness
Major sun damage to floors coming from UV rays will significantly lighten your floors to the point where they can look discolored or unhealthy. You will probably be able to tell the difference by windows, especially if you move around some rugs. The sun can wear the finish away, and if the problem progresses, the wood will begin to splinter, which can cause injuries and could be more expensive to fix down the road.
If your hardwood is turning grey, then it is definitely time to refinish your floors. This means the polyurethane has worn off, which means that your wood will begin absorbing the water. When the wood absorbs the water, it oxidizes and turns grey. If the problem is left untreated, the wood will turn darker and darker until it is black, and at this point, you will need to replace the damaged wood.
Extensive Scratches, Gouges, and Chips
Scratches are a sign that the stain is wearing off and that it is time to refinish your floors. Don’t worry too much about a few minor scratches, at some point scratches will be inevitable, especially if you have pets. But, be aware that the difference between scratches and gouges or holes is as important as you think it might be. Whether your floors were damaged by movers, kids, or pets, the deep areas of damage will need attention quickly.
A deep gouge in your floor allows water into the surrounding wood. It can also splinter and hurt your family and your pets — splinters on your feet is fun for no one. Pieces of wood that are damaged will likely need to be replaced, so if you can, try to target the problem before it gets worse.
