Hardwood Scratch Repair in Fort Worth, TX
WHY YOU SHOULD GET YOUR HARDWOOD FLOOR SCRATCHES REPAIRED?
Pets and kids can seriously damage a hardwood floor, but a hardwood scratch repair professional at Floors Depot TX has the tools and experience to tackle the repairs.
SIMPLE SCRATCH REMOVAL PROCEDURES
If a scratch is not too severe, a hardwood scratch repair professional may use a wax stick to camouflage it. Stain markers are effective because they contain urethane, which prevents future scratches. During some projects, a wax stick may not match the exact color of a floor. In this situation, a repair specialist will mix different wax stick colors together to achieve the proper tone and hue.
WHAT IS HARDWOOD SCRATCH REPAIR?
A technician must examine the scope of the scratch before any repair procedures are implemented. For a small scratch, the first step involves cleaning. The floor will be cleaned with an abrasive hardwood cleaning agent. Then, the technician will repair the scratch by scrubbing it with steel wool.
If the floor has a deep scratch, lightweight sandpaper will be used. Technicians always rub the sandpaper with the grain because rubbing against the grain causes more damage.
Unvarnished floors will be sanded a second time after the scratch is removed. The additional sanding keeps the surface smooth.
HARDWOOD SCRATCH REPAIR ADVICE - HOW TO PREVENT SCRATCHES
To prevent the need for hardwood scratch repair services, place flat pads under your sofa before you move it. If buying padding is not an option, always carry your sofa instead of dragging it.
If you have kids, have them remove their spiky shoes before they walk on your floor. The pointed edges on the bottom of the shoes will make deep gouges and scratches that are very difficult to repair. In some cases, replacing the entire floor board will be the only solution.
At the entryway, place a door mat on the floor to prevent sand from tracking on the flooring.
