Even if the damage covers a large area and does not involve gaps, deformations, or voids, the best form of repair may be to repaint the hardwood floor. Always check with your floor manufacturer before repainting your floors. Restoring hardwood floors can be very challenging, especially after years of foot traffic, dropped items, scratches from bed posts, fires, and floods that have caused all kinds of damage. For us, renovating the hardwood floors in our house meant taking care of all of those issues.
We started our repairs by marking damaged floorboards that we couldn't repaint. After a thorough inspection of each table, we realized that we would need to replace 30% of the kitchen tables. With the floors sanded and ready to use, the contractor will apply the stain or finish to the floors. Nevertheless, floors in areas with high traffic or that are exposed to a lot of dirt and grime are more likely to wear out and become damaged faster than floors in low-traffic areas or are kept clean.
