Removing scratches from hardwood floors
It can be fairly easy to remove scratches from your hardwood floor. All you need is some scratch covers.
- For scratches that don’t go deeper than the surface, use some steel wool and paint thinner or deglosser.
- If you have to deal with some deeper scratches, then you’ll need to use some wood filler. Use a 100 grit sandpaper to smooth the area. Then fill the scratch with wood filler and then use a straight piece of wood to remove the excess. Clean the area with a rag and paint thinner.
- After each case, you’ll need to add a layer of polyurethane. If the area is glossier than the rest of the floor, then use some steel wool to dull it.
- Use protection equipment when using paint or other floor solutions.
