Most of us have never been storybook pirates trying to decipher a tattered map in pursuit of an ever-elusive treasure chest. Still, like pirates, many homeowners are walking on unknown hidden treasures, and Denver Dustless has the map for you.

Have you ever pulled up an inconspicuous corner of your tired, old carpet? For many homeowners, this brave, carpet-pulling quest has been a complete ‘x marks the spot’ moment.

Here at Denver Dustless, we’re here with tips to help you discover (and polish!) the hidden treasure of your home.

Hardwood Floor – Jewels Covered by Carpet

Many unsuspecting homeowners of 20th century built homes across the nation have removed their carpet (typically intending on replacing it with more carpet) only to discover something far more precious than any synthetic rug…gorgeous hardwood floors!

Some of these floors are over a century old, dating back to times before power tools and regulations. 

The floors are unique, sometimes made from old-growth trees with tighter grain patterns, which are a rare (not to mention expensive!) find on the market today. Many of the floors also have intricate decorative features, such as borders and designs that are simply not being done today.

Picture how stunning your home would be with a unique, vintage hardwood floor. What a shame for it to remain concealed under carpet!

Why Some Homeowners Think Old Hardwood is Worthless

(Think your hardwood floor is nothing short of kindling? Think again!)

Some homeowners are convinced that ripping up their current carpet or linoleum to refinish underlying hardwood would not be worth the hassle. They worry about the condition of the hardwood. What if the previous homeowners covered it up for a reason? Perhaps to cover a burn spot or other damage?

As with anything in life, we cannot account for all ‘what if’ scenarios. There will be a certain risk factor with any home improvement project. That being said, if you’re thinking of replacing your flooring anyway, why not consider restoring your hardwood as an option? There is nothing to lose!

Imagine the added value (not to mention, beauty) a refinished hardwood floor from the last century could add to your home. According to USA Today, a whopping 54% of home buyers are automatically willing to pay more for a home that has hardwood flooring versus a home with alternative flooring, such as carpet or linoleum.

A budget consideration:

The cost of refinishing a hardwood floor is typically less than installing new carpet! Refinishing your old hardwood flooring is one of the single most cost-effective ways of raising the value of your home.

In turn, hardwood flooring is easier to maintain. Its elegance and timelessness has made it a preferred aesthetic choice for countless homeowners over the decades (even centuries!).
