Why Are My Hardwood Floors Peeling?

When the finish on your hardwood floors is peeling, it can be frustrating. You might think there’s nothing you can do, but there is a solution!

Hardwood floors peel when there is dirt, wax, dust, or other particles in the finish. If your hardwoods were installed while other work was going on in the home, it’s very possible that dust was swirling through the air while your finish was drying. It’s also possible that the floors were not adequately cleaned before the finish was applied, leaving a gap between the finish and the wood.

Other reasons your finish might be peeling include excessive sanding for a smooth surface that the finish can’t adhere to or applying a top coat before the flooring is completely dry. If your floors are stained, a build up of stain residue could also be the culprit.

How Do I Fix Peeling Hardwoods?

It is possible to correct the problem, but it will take some time. The best way to make your floors look brand new again is to sand them down until you get to the bare wood. Start the hardwood finishing process over again, being careful to allow plenty of time for drying between coats and ensuring that the floors are as clean as possible.

Correcting peeling hardwood floors is a tough job, and it’s smart to have an expert come in. You wouldn’t want to spend hours and hours sanding, only to find that you missed a spot or didn’t wait long enough to refinish them. Here at Flooring by Design, our technicians are expertly skilled in hardwood repairs and will make sure that your floors are returned to their former glory.
