Sun-bleached patches on hardwood
Good morning folks; wondering if anybody has had this flooring situation.
Just purchased a home with great hardwood floors. Level, solid, no squeaks, put in by the previous owner's grandfather about 50 years ago. The previous owner had area rugs, put down in 1993. When we tossed them we found that around the windows, the borders of the rug remained visible where the wood lightened in color. It's really bad right by the french doors. I'm hoping that it's just the wood stain bleached out by the sun, and the solution will be to have the floors refinished. But if the wood itself is altered, could it be possible that these are permanent lines?
