Harwood Floor Refinishing with Small gap in some areas?

hard wood floor refinishing Add comments

I am planning on refinishing bedroom hardwood floors. There are very small gaps in areas. Is there some sort of fillers I can use to fill these gaps. if so, please be specific with names (brand), Thanks for all answers

When I finished my floor on the last sanding I turned off the vacuum then swept off the excess wood dust letting it filter into the cracks and gaps filling them with the same kind of wood the floor is so there is not much color difference, then stained and polyurethane over it.

    I used a DAP product, did well. Each flooring company handles their own brand but all are pretty good. Be sure to condition the floor before you finish. This makes a huge difference in appearance.

    What exactly do you mean by ‘gaps?’ If the gaps are around the edges of the floor along the walls, then you don’t want to fill them in. These floors are designed to be ‘floating’ floors, which means you want to have some kind of gap around the edges to allow for movement of the floor during temperature changes, etc. If that is where the gaps are, I wouldn’t fill them in.
