It's been almost eight years now that we've lived in our home. We bought the home newly built back in July of 2001. I can't believe how fast the time has passed. I made the decision to lay hardwood floors in each and every room. I have terrible allergies and two dogs. So having hardwood floors really back on the dust and smell that carpet can hold. I love my wood flooring, but it's starting to look a bit beat up. I'm contemplating whether to have the hubby pull up the bad pieces and replace them with new ones. I'm not sure what else we can do. I don't think this type of hardwood can be refinished. I'm sure my hubby won't be happy when I tell him I want to start a new flooring project. Do you have hardwood floors? How do you repair the years of abuse?
