Darkened color of old wood floor
Q. We recently removed a rug that had been on a hardwood floor for about 20 years. The floor has areas that are darker than others and it looks like these darker areas are where people have walked on a lot. Is there a way for me to get this floor back to its lighter color or match all areas without calling in a floor finisher?
A. I am sorry to have to tell you that the only way I know to even out the color of the floor is to sand and refinish it.by
