Flooring Inspections: What to Expect

Over time, all floors are susceptible to wear and damage, whether it’s due to high traffic, excessive moisture, or even an unfortunate accident. Depending on the type of flooring, your floors may also be susceptible to less visible damage from termites or other insects. We at Above Board Flooring want to help you take the best possible care of your floors, which includes getting accurate assessments of their current state with professional flooring inspections. In this article, our team will go over what you can expect from flooring inspections and what they can do for you.

getting accurate assessments of their current state with professional flooring inspections

The goal of a flooring inspection is to obtain as much information about your floor as possible in order to determine if you have any problems that need to be addressed. To help achieve this goal, our Above Board Flooring team may ask questions about the timeline of your floor, such as when it was installed or last refinished, and may request to see receipts from any work that has been done on it.

For a wooden floor, the inspection will be conducted from a standing height, and will typically not use backlighting. If you have to get on your hands and knees to see the issue or can only make it out in specific lighting, then the issue is likely not serious or something that needs to be addressed in the short term. Our experts at Above Board Flooring will be happy to monitor the issue if it’s still causing you concern, but you can trust our assessment of your floor’s safety.
