How to treat worn spots on your hardwood floors

Solid Wood Flooring Repair by DIY Parquetry & CorkWhat do you do when your lovely hardwood floor has worn spot? Maybe it’s in a high traffic area or a spot where you have been repeatedly been wheeling office chair and it has rubbed away the shiny finish off your floor.

For worn spot on your hardwood floor, the answer is to fix that area. Replacing an entire floor is not economical and not needed with hardwood flooring. Why would you do that when only a portion of your floor is worn out? Spot treating your floor may seem hard at first but it’s a good alternative to a whole floor refinishing. You’ll realise it’s an easy thing too!

Here’s how to spot treat on your floor:

  • Sand the area. Usea flexible kind of sandpaper. Make sure to sand with the grain and not against it. Sand at least 3cm around the worn out area as well. This will help remove built in dirt in the area.
  • Stain the area. Try out a few stains to get a closer match. It might not be a match but choose a colour that is closest to your floor colour. Apply a 3cm layer of stain in the area and let it dry. Don’t apply too much because you might have to sand it out if it’s too dark.
  • Finish with polyurethane. Once the applied stain is dryyou can apply polyurethane. When applying it be careful. There is no room for mistakes at this stage. Use a foam brush and apply the polyurethane in a thin coat. Let it dry.

Spot treating

Spot treating is a good option, but only if you have one or two worn out areas.The changes in colour are usually not noticeable but if your floor has too many worn areas, spot treating will give your floor a leopard print look. It might be best to consider sanding and re-staining the entire floor or take the plunge and replace it with a new one.

How to bring back your timber floors shine?

timber flooringDull floors are unappealing in your home. Give your home the TLC it deserves and bring your floor back to life by renewing its shine of your timber flooring. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Sweep off the dirt
  2. Mix your cleaner
  3. Mop the floor
  4. Spray the cleaner
  5. Wipe the spills

Sweep off the dirt

Before doing further cleaning, make sure to clear the area and the floor surface of any light furniture, toys, shoes, magazines etc. Use soft broom to sweep the dust and dirt away and remove it. Focus more on the edges, your hall ways and other areas that are prone to heavy traffic. Frequently sweep the surface to prevent build-up of grim, minimising the amount of cleaners you will use later. Vacuuming is another good way to remove the dirt, make sure you get right to the edges and corners using a soft brush attachment.

Mix your cleaner

Mix white vinegar and vegetable oil in a spray bottle. Vinegar removes dirt and the vegetable oil helps condition the wood which keeps it smooth and shiny.

Making nontoxic cleaners will help you remove the hidden grime that dulls the floor and regulate the wood to retain its luster.

Use equal amount for both the vinegar and oil then shake the cleaner well every time you will use it to ensure that it doesn’t separate and prevent the oil from going rancid.

Mop the floor

After making your cleaner, run the floor with a soft cloth mop at least once a week. Start from the bottom to the top. Make sure to focus on high traffic areas as they require more frequent mopping than the less affected areas. Use a damp mop with hot water. Don’t over water you floor and always dry mop afterwards to remove all excess water.

Spray the cleaner

Spray enough cleaner on the wood floor; too much cleaner will not help and can just make your floor oily. Floor cleaner should be applied in small amounts to prevent over wetting which damages the flooring. Apply floor cleaner with just enough water to get balanced and good looking floors.

Wipe the spills

Immediately wipe the residue off the floor using a clean mop head or soft towel. Wood floors can’t stand being too wet and excess water will damage your floor. Do a circular motion to wipe up any spills or excess which will buff the floor and bring out its shine. Protect the floors and they will give you a long lasting glow in your home!
