“Help finding floor restoration company for 1914 rowhouse”

“Dear PoPville,

We are moving back into our 1914 rowhouse after a few years of tenants and want to take this opportunity to do some restoration of our beautiful cherry-inlaid parquet floors. We have some damaged boards right where the parquet pattern is that pre-date our ownership that we would like to replace, places that are worn with little or no poly left, and wear patterns to address. We have received conflicting advice on how to proceed, ranging from

“absolutely do not sand again, do a hand sand in trouble spots and deep clean” to “sanding is no problem”. We are looking for help in finding companies that specialize in restoration of wood floors in these older rowhouses. The last thread on this topic appears to be from 2010, so we’d love some more recent recommendations. Thank you!”
