“Most of these scratches can be easily fixed or disguised until the next time the floor is refinished,” the article continues. In the following three easy steps, Remnant King Carpets describes a simple process to color in and stealthily disguise inevitable hardwood floor blemishes.
The first step mentioned in the article is to determine the severity of the scrape or scratch. If the scrape has penetrated through the surface layer of the wood and has gouged deep into the board itself, fixing the issue may not be so easy. The article recommends that, “If the floor has been gouged as opposed to scraped, the board may need to be replaced or repaired by a professional flooring company or contractor.”
The article recommends, as the next step, that the scraped area by cleaned using warm water or mineral spirits. Next, it’s time to color the scratch to disguise it’s existence.
Remnant King Carpets recommends three options for fill-in coloring tools. A stain marker that matches the color of the hardwood floor can be used to replicate the original color of the scraped area. Or, a homeowner can use the same staining substance that was used to stain their floorboards to recolor the area. Finally, if neither of the previous options are readily available, the homeowner can use a similarly-colored permanent marker to color over the scratch.
The article provides detailed explanations of each of these steps that will guide homeowners through the process of repairing surface scrapes to their rich, polished floorboards.
