If we discover worms in the wood floorings, we should replace them partly. Otherwise, the worms would spread around. Then, why the wood floorings would have worms? The reasons why wood floorings have worms are as followed: wood floorings themselves do not deal with the worms inside when they are dried under high temperature. Under normal circumstances, worms would hatch half a year later. Keels are not qualified. As we do not deal with drying and worm-killing, the wood would produce more and more worms. Therefore, it is recommended that we should check clearly. It takes half a year that the worms come out. The hatchery period is also half a year. If a year has past, it is possible that other worms would come. If the keel has worms itself, and we do not find out, the conditions will be more and more severe. Maybe the operators put the insect-resist agents under the plastic film, the agents can not play their roles perfectly. Normally, it is plain plate that appear worms. The unlacquered hardwood floorings would not have worms. Technical problem may be one of the reasons that would have worms, but not all the worms are produced in wood. As for qualified hardwood floorings, they would not have worms normally. Then what are other reasons? As domestic decoration have to use many wood floorings and chipboard, many of them are easy to have worms when they meet with suitable temperature, humidity and non- professional insect-resist dealing. Besides, worms can easily damage wood. It is undoubtably that insects is the key invader. Therefore, when the wood floorings have worms, only can we control them that we can treat the worms. Another phenomenon is that the worms actually come from under the hardwood floorings. However, it is not surely the fault of wood floorings. Many consumers are care about the quality when installing, but they ognore the quality of keel. If the keel have high moisture content, or the woods do not do insect-resist agents, it may cause unexpected effect.
Solid wood floors, while long-lasting, can be damaged. Scratches, nicks and gouges out of the wood are the most common issues facing solid wood flooring. Other issues may include warping, squeaky or loose boards as well as actual holes in the floor. In cases of severe damage, planks may need to be entirely replaced rather than just repaired. If the floor is warped or has holes, replacement will definitely be necessary. Most other common problems can be solved by refinishing Instructions 1Sweep the floor. Before you can repair a solid wood floor, the surface must be entirely clean. Sweep the floor and pickup any debris with a dust pan. If the floor is very dirty, you may need to use a damp cloth to pick up the dirt. If you do end up using a damp cloth, you must wait until the floor is absolutely dry before proceeding. 2Sand down the damaged spot on the wood. Extend the area out several inches around the damage to make sure that the finished result is as seamless as possible. Use a medium or heavy grade sandpaper. If the gouges are very deep, you may need to use a belt sander. Make sure that the entire area is smoothed out and that the damage is no longer visible. 3Clean up the dust from sanding. Sanding produces a great deal of dust that will need to be completely cleaned up before you can refinish the flooring. Use a broom and a dustpan to get the majority cleaned up, and if necessary, wipe down the area with a damp cloth and allow it to dry. The area should be free of all dust. 4Stain the sanded area. Using the same stain that was previously used on your flooring, or one that matches as closely as possible, stain the newly sanded surface. Use a paint brush for smaller areas, or a larger roller applicator for large areas. Work with the grain of the wood. Apply a light coat and allow it six to eight hours to dry. If the color is too light, apply more coats as necessary until the flooring matches. 5Clear coat the spot. In order to prevent future damage, clear coat polyurethane should be applied over the stain. Once again, use a paint brush and apply a very thin coat to the area. Allow this spot six to eight hours to dry. If you notice any bubbles or rough spots, the area will need to be lightly sanded and clear coat will need to be reapplied. Allow the fixed spot 12 hours to dry completely after the last coat before allowing foot traffic on the spot.
