Q: I bought some “no warranty” wood from a popular wood flooring store. It was advertised as damaged w/ split, knots, damaged grooves and burns. I bought 15% extra for waste. I’ve noticed that some pieces have obvious termite damage.
Should I be concerned? Is there a possibility that some of that wood may still have active termites in it? The description they gave never mentioned termite damage.
A: I wouldn’t take a chance. Call in a pest extermination company for an assessment.

I had to install hardwood flooring in my hall and connect it to an existing hardwood floor in the foyer area. I matched wood grains as close as possible. I still notice the difference, even though is very small. Is there a way to hid it?
I'm perplexed by the smells inhabiting my house these days. It almost smells like something is "hot" in my house. My electrician assured me that all was well. So, my question is: could my hardwood floors give off a woody/hot smell given the high heat and humidity?

Repair wood putty
How can I repair wood putty from finished floors? I've had my wood floors finished. The wood putty used was the wrong color and is now visible and dry. I'd like to repair without damaging/scratching the rest of the floor.
