There is no simple answer for how to repair hardwood floors. Homeowners who have a question about whether their hardwood floors can be repaired should consult a professional for an opinion. Problems such as staining and scratches can usually be easily corrected by sanding. However, problems such as warping are more serious and cannot always be repaired. Repairing hardwood flooring which is warped can sometimes be prepared by thoroughly drying the hardwood and removing floorboards adjacent to the warping and then sanding the edges of these floorboards before replacing them. If this does not correct the warping, hammering may sometimes help to remove bulges. However, if neither remedy works to repair, it may be necessary to replace the hardwood floors.
