At some point you may see small “scrathes” on
your floor. Unless there has been a significant accident of
some sort, the scratches you see are not scratches in the
WOOD, what you see are scratches in the urethane coating.
(that is good news).
When a particle of sand or other abrasive material "cuts"
or scratches into the urethane, the fissure in the urethane
looks white against the dark wood background.
To remedy this, you only have to darken the fissure in the
How to treat the scratches
Take a cloth and wrap tightly around your index finger. LIGHTLY
moisten the tip of your finger with a drop of Old English
Furniture Polish. Trace the scratch with your fingertip and
then vigorishly wipe off any excess. Your only goal is to
darken the scratch, not to get any polish on the non-scratched
area. This will darken the fissure and remove the scratch.
At some point in the life of your floor you will want to
have a new coat of urethane applied. We will then buff the
floor, vacumm, and then apply a fresh coat of urethane. The
floor will look brand new. You can repeat this process for
many, many, many years.
