Scratched Hardwoods?

So you just put a scratch in your hardwood floors and I know your thinking gosh darned. But the reality is, it happens and it’s ok. Here is one way that you the homeowner can “touch up” your own hardwood floors and not have to call a professional. The tips below are just tips and may not always work but its worth a try. 

Stain Pens are your Friend.

Keep MinWax stain pens available. You do not need the exact same color, just a close match. Remember you are only trying to fix a scratch and not restaining your entire floor. So what do you do now? Simple. We take the stain pen and give it a shake like a spray can. Once shaken, you will simply rub the pen onto the scratch. The stain may not come out on 1st attempt if this is a new pen. However, once the stain does come out, let it sit in the scratch for a couple of minutes. After letting it sit for a few minutes you will take a cloth and gently wipe the area you just applied stain to. You should see that the scratch has absorbed the stain and now making the scratch less obvious. The scratch indentation may still be noticeable at certain angles but the white scratch should be gone now.
