Touching Up Your Hardwood Floors
Touching up your damaged hardwood floors is simple, but there are a few factors that will determine the steps needed to bring your flooring back to life.Materials needed
- Eraser and wood stain marker (Minwax recommended). When using a wood stain marker, have a rag on hand to wipe up excess stain.
- All of our prefinished products have a polyurethane aluminum oxide finish.
Do NOT use any of the following products as they will damage your floors:
- paste wax
- steel wool
- nail polish remover
- On polyurethane-coated floors, you can remove scuff marks with a pencil eraser.
- To conceal scratches, use a touch-up stain marker. It’s ok if the colors are not a perfect match, because the wood inherently has a range of different colors. To match the color, you may need to apply several layers of stain.
