Scour off the Residue

If your hardwood floor had carpet or tile laid atop it, you probably have to deal with removing some sort of adhesive residue after you have pulled up the carpeting or tile. An adhesive or scraper remover will be your stake for getting rid of the glue from the floor, though some people prefer soaking the floor with water for a couple of minutes. As simple as it is!

You need to remember that this can be a time-consuming since sometimes adhesive will leave stains on the hardwood flooring even after you have managed to get it off. In a case for any reason you are worried about damaging the wood, consulting and hiring a professional at the early stage is surely an option.

Fix the Holes

I, think to deal with nails holes that must have emerged during carpeting. Old hardwood also might have gaps between boards. Choose between several different filler options, like a latex filler or wood putty. It depends on the woods that whether it has already finished, the size of holes, and the color of the wood and stain you are going to use, you can easy find something at any local hardware store that won’t spoil the look of your floor drastically. One of the ideal ways to fix everything is to get engineered hardwood flooring solutions. Yes!

If you are looking for a new look, the next step is to choose your stain and apply it until you have the color you want.

Original hardwood flooring is a beautiful asset you don’t want to cover up.
