Warped hardwood floors, also known as sagging, is a serious problem for any homeowner. It can make the flooring less attractive and also less valuable. Warping is often the result of severe moisture problems and any evidence of warped hardwood floors needs to be addressed immediately to prevent more serious problems. Warped hardwood floors are usually not the result of faulty hardwood or installation, but are indicative of significant moisture problems in the home itself that need to be remedied.
Hardwood floors which are seriously warped may not be reparable. However, hardwood floor repair is possible for floors which are only a little warped. To repair these floors, it is necessary to clean and dry the floor completely. Then it is necessary to remove the warped floorboards and plane them as necessary to remove the bulges.
