You're here with wood floor problems or choices
because you care. Congratulations!
So are the rest of us!
And the entire Conservancy Community is here to help.
The most frequently asked questions appear in Below the Outlets, The Director's Wood Floor Blog.
old floor guys.
As one of those elite, I keep a very special list entitled,
"100 Ways To Wreck a Wood Floor"
Think you might have a new one for the Ol' Director?
Let me hear it!
(in a 1000 words or less, please.)
Pets and kids show up often on the list.
Moisture is another popular problem, either as an interior environmental quality (IEQ) issue, or some event:
"My dishwasher leaked, my washing machine overflowed, the supply line to my icemaker broke."
And of course, almost without exception, "the water damaged our wood floor," when?
"When we were out of town." SO...
Have (or had) a wood floor problem?
This Conservancy "pays it forward", so to speak. As a community we talk about our problems
not to celebrate them by one upping each other,
(although, many stories are sadly humorous, I must admit,)
but to hopefully help some unsuspecting floor owner prevent a problem before it happens.
It's truly bad news that you are in such good company.
The good news is your solution starts here!
Tell The Wood Floor Conservancy community about your problem. Show us, if you can.
Yes, I will look up to give you my advice. But this old floor guy isn't done learning, you know.
Chances are good someone has been where you are and has even more sage wisdom to offer.
And again, this is so important I'm going to repeat it:
You may prevent someone's wood floor problem before it happens! Please take this opportunity to
help as you are being helped! We're in this together, right?
(Providing your location is not required but it is helpful, all things considered. Often the process of elimination in solving a problem requires some knowledge of your climate. Your call.)
