Fixing Hardwood Floors

Fixing Hardwood Floors

When you’re buying a home, how can you tell if you got a good deal or not? 

Real estate agents might say it’s a good deal…

The seller might say it’s a good deal…

But is there a way that you can run the numbers for yourself? 

Well, at INW Properties, we’ve been buying and selling real estate in Spokane for a long time now… and we’re pretty darn familiar with the market here. 

In fact, the success of our business requires that we always run the numbers on properties to make sure that we’re staying profitable.

Here’s the gist!

Wondering how to repair your hardwood floors? 

For today’s buyers, hardwood floors are a desirable aspect of a home. In fact, more real estate agents agree that homes with hardwood floors are easier to sell!

But that’s not true if the floor is damaged. 

At INW Properties, we’ve been working in Spokane for quite some time and we’ve seen our fair share of damaged hardwood floors. 

And here are our tips for fixing hardwood floors… 

For Wear Spots

If it looks like the finish or stain is wearing away in a certain spot, you’ll want to use a fine-grained sandpaper to sand and then re-stain your floor. Make sure to check that the stain and finish matches the rest of the floor!

For Scratches

Scratches from furniture, pets, or gritty shoes is the most common type of damage on hardwood floors. Fortunately, it’s a pretty easy fix. Just use a hardwood floor polishing solution that also reduces the appearance of scratches. For deeper scratches, you might need to get the sanding materials back out.

For Gouges

If there’s a gouge in your hardwood floor, then you’ll need to add filler before sanding, staining, and finishing the floor. Finishing putty works like a charm. 

Hope that helps! You can get more details on Google!
