●     Grey boards

Just glance at the floorboard and try to remember how they looked when they were newly installed? Do they seem to turn grey over the years? Let us address a question here: why do they turn specifically grey and no other colors? Words seem to absorb the moisture from the atmosphere. Weather changes over the year and there are times when there is high humidity. On absorbing this moisture the word goes through a gradual process of oxidation and seems to turn grey as a result of it. So if your floors are grey then they need sanding and polishing.

●     Scratches

Floor polish is prone to scratches. These scratches could be from any neglected scenarios like pushing the furniture from one place to another and lifting it. Having hard debris under the door edged when opening or closing. Wearing heels in the home. Wearing shoes laden with dust and debris in the home and more. Other times these crashes increase and get easily visible. So before the guest notices, they get the floor refinished.

●     Moisture stains

Apart from absorbing moisture from the atmosphere, what about the moisture that we accidentally add to other floors? I mean spilling water, using web mops, pet’s urine and more. If we do not wipe the floor properly and on time that it could turn into ugly patches. So if you have patches around the home that do consider refinishing the floor. Sanding could be of great help here. 

●     Dullness and discoloration

Over time, due to wear and tear, the polish of areas that are directly exposed to the traffic is likely to get dull. If you want to find these out, just lift your rugs and carpet and see the difference between the floor under the rug and the floor which is not under the rug. Do you find a difference? That’s a sign that you must consider sanding and polishing the floor.
