How to fix scratches from wood floors
Wood flooring is considered by many an artistic process. Professional solid wood flooring installation can last a lifetime if done properly. Maintenance is also of core importance when you want your wood floors to have a long, happy life.
But with time, wood deteriorates. Sometimes you unwillingly scratch it; maybe you get a new pet – their toenails can damage the surface of your floors. It is inevitable, this is why you have to perform regular maintenance on your wood flooring. Mr Hardwood Inc offers solid wood flooring in Marietta, Atlanta, Kennesaw and Woodstock GA.
Here are some tips to help you fix scratches on wood floors:
- Quick fix with nuts
Maybe it sounds “nuts”, but fixing superficial wood floor scratches with nuts is not impossible. Just take a nut and rub it on the scratched area. The oils contained by the nut will successfully cover the scratch. What is even better is that you will not be able to differentiate the colors, because the oils in the nut “camouflage” the scratch in the original color of the wood floors. Cool, huh?
- Quick fix with stain markers
You can find a stain marker in most hardware stores, but be careful to choose one that has the same color as your floors. It’s not the best option you can implement, but it is a solution that won’t eat up your time and won’t leave hardwood flooring unaesthetic. It is just a temporary solution, so you will have to consider hiring a solid wood flooring company to come fix the problem.
- Sandpaper for deeper scratches
If you’re a handyman and have a bit of experience with sandpaper, you can take matters into your own hands. Deeper hardwood flooring scratches can look really ugly, so you can use sandpaper in combination with a bit of the original floor paint to wipe away any traces of the scratch.
