The ones that have had a hardwood floor fitted in their house could be forgiven for fretting about scratches to the surface of this precious investment.
However, there is no need to stress as it’s true to state they are always unavoidable — unless you vow never to set foot on the ground , you can expect them to look from time to time.
The trick, though, is learning how to fix them and stop them from spoiling the look and feel of the ground. To maintain the appeal of hardwood flooring takes care and attention in any case, so you ought to be well prepared to perform maintenance whenever required.
If the floor is used quite a good deal as well as the footfall is rather high, you can expect these scratches to grow. Along with this, pets may cause marks in wooden flooring and so you will have to provide them with alternatives to paw on instead. Be very careful when moving furniture too as this action often contributes to the surface of the flooring being damaged somehow, so make sure that you have pads on the bottom of the legs.
Minor scratches should not be too much of a difficulty to remedy, but excessive surface damage might require re-sanding. In the next article we’ll be focusing on minor scratches and what to think about when considering repairing them.
