Minor damage to hardwood floors can easily be repaired by Paramount Flooring.
Here are some common problems and solutions for hardwood floors that need extra attention:
One of the biggest threats to your hardwood floor is water. Excessive moisture can cause wood to expand, in turn causing significant damage to your hardwood floor. However, hardwood floor water damage restoration services from Paramount Flooring can repair your hardwood floor, leaving it looking like new again. If you’ve experienced a leak or flooding, quick action is the key to preventing or minimizing the damage. You can often save or restore your hardwood floor if it is dried quickly. Remove as much of the water as you can right away. Create as much ventilation in the area as possible by running fans, opening windows, and using dehumidifiers. Avoid using heaters though, as they can cause permanent damage to wet wood.
The experts at Paramount Flooring will assess the condition of your floor to determine what type of water damage restoration your floor requires. If the damage is minor, we may be able to simply sand and refinish it. If there is excessive expansion of the wood, we can tear out the damaged boards and replace them, weaving the new boards into the existing floor boards. We will then sand and refinish your hardwood floor, making it look like new again.
If your hardwood floor has suffered water damage, don’t delay. Call Paramount Flooring immediately.
Split or Cracked Wood
Over the years, many hardwood floors develop small splits or cracks in the surface of the wood. These can be spot repaired by our professional services. However, if your floor is suffering from large cracks, you may want to think about refinishing the entire hardwood floor. If the split is severe, you should probably replace the damaged plank altogether. Paramount Flooring is here to help when you need us.
Gaps In The Planks
Another common hardwood floor issue is the development of gaps between planks. The most common causes of gaps between the boards is Mother Nature. Wood shrinks as it dries out, and it expands when it gets wet and humid. As a rule of thumb, if the gap is less than the thickness of a dime, your flooring is normal and there’s nothing to worry about. If your gaps are more persistent, you might need to call us to tighten up your hardwood floor with our professional hardwood floor repair service.

A buckled floor happens when the boards warp and lift up from the subfloor they are attached to. You’ll most likely need to call us to identify the root of the problem if buckling is an issue. Once the cause of floor buckling has been identified, we will need to take the necessary measures to ensure that your hardwood planks are firmly attached to the subfloor, so that the problem no longer persists.
Cupped floors, also called wash boarding. This issue develops gradually across the width of the wood strip where the edges of the hardwood planks raise up and the center of the board sinks down. The cause of cupped floors is a moisture imbalance where there is more water on the bottom side of the wood plank than on the top. The only cure is to balance the humidity levels in your home, and to give the surface time to return back to normal. After the floor has stabilized, call us and we will sand it flat and re-finish it to perfection.
