About Our Dependable Flower Mound Flooring Repair Services
When you first chose your flooring material and had it installed, you made an investment in the appearance, protection and longevity of your home. If that material has suffered sudden damage or slow deterioration over time and is no longer looking its best or doing its job to protect your house, you can get more years out of your original investment and still have a surface that looks and functions like new with Flower Mound flooring repair services. Our handyman professionals have the experience and skill to handle a wide range of flooring repair issues. The strategy we use will, of course, depend on the type of material and the nature of the damage.
HARDWOOD FLOORING REPAIR
Hardwood floors are a classic for a reason, and it's no surprise that they're a favorite of Flower Mound homeowners. Whether you have solid hardwood planks or engineered hardwood installed, there are some distinct pros and cons to wood surfaces. While wood may be more susceptible than some other materials to damage, such as scuffing, gouging or staining, all of that can be erased with sanding and refinishing, leaving the surface looking as good as the day it was installed. Engineered hardwood can only be refinished once or twice because its surface is made of a relatively thin veneer of actual hardwood. Solid hardwood planks can be refinished many times and last for well over a century with the proper maintenance. Flower Mound flooring repair for hardwood may also involve replacing a couple of damaged planks.
PORCELAIN OR CERAMIC TILE FLOORING REPAIR
Tile floors are also incredibly popular in Flower Mound and pretty much everywhere else. Unlike wood, ceramic and porcelain tile are resistant to moisture incursion and make a great choice for rooms such as bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms and entryways that are vulnerable to being exposed to water. But cracks, deteriorated grout and other problems can seriously weaken their ability to protect your home against water damage. We can provide Flower Mound flooring repair services to correct issues like:
- Cracked or crumbling grout
- Dingy, dirty grout lines
- Small cracks and chips
- Loose tiles
- Heaving or sinking tiles
- Replacement for one damaged piece

Frequently Asked Flower Mound Flooring Repair Questions
IS IT POSSIBLE TO REPAIR ROTTED HARDWOOD PLANKS?
Yes and no. Wood rot causes parts of the fiber of your wood flooring to deteriorate, so there's no way to completely restore it to its former condition. In most cases, the best Flower Mound flooring repair solution for this type of damage is simply to remove the affected planks and replace them altogether. It is technically possible to repair minor instances of wood rot without removing the plank using epoxy wood filler, but that method requires paint to conceal the repair and that's not typically a viable option for a hardwood floor.
HOW SHOULD I MAINTAIN MY VINYL PLANKS OR TILES TO AVOID NEEDING FLOORING REPAIR?
Generally speaking, luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) and luxury vinyl planks (LVP) are pretty easy to maintain. But they're not completely impervious to damage like stains, scratches, and filmy haze. Here are a few maintenance tips to keep your vinyl planks or tiles in great shape so you can prevent the need for Flower Mound flooring repair:
- Spilled liquids should be mopped or wiped up since some substances like oil, lemon juice and vinegar can stain the surface if it's allowed to sit there for a long period of time
- Use rags, a soft brush or a mop for cleaning and avoid abrasive cleaning tools like steel wool
- Avoid dragging furniture across the surface
- Vacuum or dry mop regularly to eliminate tiny particles of dirt that can leave small scratches behind
DOES CARPET HAVE A NEGATIVE IMPACT ON INDOOR AIR QUALITY?
This is actually a myth—in fact, the opposite is true. As long as it's vacuumed regularly, carpet is better for allergy sufferers than hard surfaces. When dust and dander settle on a hard surface, they can be stirred up into the air every time someone passes by, seriously lowering indoor air quality. In contrast, carpet holds on to dust and other allergens, keeping it out of the air and out of your lungs.
