Question:

Dear Wooddoctor,

PLEASE, PLEASE TELL ME WHERE I CAN FIND A COMPANY THAT HAS YOUR VALUES IN THE LONG ISLAND AREA.

We bought this wonderful home and i love the soft rich glow of the natural wood, i want the BEST for our floor,please tell me what i can do to maintain these wonderful floors.

thanks, ann

Answer:



Dear Ann

The answer to your first question is a long one, so I'll skip to the second one. Please read my floor maintenance article in the Floored News section of this web site, it should say it all. But if you have any other specific problems with your floor, please let me know.

Finding competent companies to do good floor work is getting to be quite a problem these days. You might find some clues in my hiring contractors article in the Hardwood Authority section, but you could help out also. If you really search your own area you are bound to find some really good floor mechanics still in business, see if they are interested in this site. We would like to provide a nationwide network of good floor tradesmen, but it's going to take some time. These guys are not very high tech, and may see the web as a medium to be avoided rather than embraced.

Oh, and thanks for the compliment.

As always your Most humble servant, Joseph, the Wood Floor Doctor
