Our home has a mix of 20 year old red oak and 70 year old white oak hardwood floors. There are boards in both the red and white oak floors where areas in the grain are crumbing. Any ideas what this could be caused by? Thank you

Do you have a Dog? Sometimes the toenails emboss the soft grain in spots which can look like insect damage. If there is any frass around little holes you could have a beetle problem.

Thank you for your input! We do have dogs! That may explain it! I could not figure out why it seamed to follow the grain. What is grass?
