Hardwood floor condition


Hi. Can people opine on the condition of the floors - decent, bad, good enough? I will be listing house for sale and want to know if I need refinishing, replacing, or light buffing.

I do not like the gaps between the planks. May not be easy to tell from pictures but there are gorges, scratches, dings, dents. What's the moist cost effective way to fix?

There is an awesome product called Rejuvenate Wood Floor Professional Restorer. You wipe it on and scratches disappear. It has saved my butt a few times when I was moving ladders and furniture around in a customer's house for painting.

To get rid of deep gouges, you have to sand. Gaps between boards can't really be fixed. If you try filling them, it will look horrible and can cause buckling. You need a new floor.

I'd wipe it with Rejuvenate and call it good.

Re: Hardwood floor condition


If the wood is stable you can use a filler between the boards BUT that is something you'd do in conjunction with sanding the floor down for a complete refinish job.

IMO the floor looks decent and I wouldn't do anything other than clean/wax - maybe use the rejuvenate stuff.

Re: Hardwood floor condition


If the floor is well within the parameters of the condition of the remainder of the property I wouldn't touch it.

Re: Hardwood floor condition


I agree with @SeniorSitizen , the floor would be good in any house I have lived in but it might not be good enough for a high end castle.

Re: Hardwood floor condition


I would try some Johnson non-slip floor wax first.
Sweep and clean the floor.
When dry, buff.

If that doesn't work then..................
