how to fill cracks on old hard wood flooring
We pulled up an old carpet in what will be the dining room of a home we recently purchased. Of course, as is so often the case, we found the original floor to be hardwood in pretty decent shape. It appears to have a couple of layers of paint on it, but that is nothing a floor sander can't fix. My concern lies in the few areas where the floor has "separated slightly", The seam between the 2 tongue and groove boards is more of a crack. Is there any easy fix to this? I imagine after all of the work to sand, and refinish this floor, these few areas will be excellent places for dirt and dog hair to get trapped.....
We really don't want to go with our original idea of laminate flooring, since this surprise of an original floor has so much potential.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
