I have engineered wood floors and a portion of them (at base of foyer stairs and in front of dining room window)have deep grooves and the finish worn off. I'm unsure if this is caused by dog nails or urine - although our dogs have rarely "gone" in the house. We will eventually either have the floors sanded and screened - or even replaced - but not until we have less dogs and less kids living in our house! So I'm looking for a temporary solution to help these unsightly areas blend in with the rest of the floors. Is there some kind of finish product - like the Bona "restore" products that will fill in those grooves and rough finish making them less noticeable? Or some sort of color crayon that can be used before trying one of the many restore products on the market? Again, I'm looking for a temporary solution until the rotten kids move out and take their dogs with 'em! But I cringe every time I walk in my foyer and dining room. HELP! Oh, and again - the floors are engineered wood floors in a deep Merbau finish. Thanks in advance for any help or advice you can offer.
Most engineered wood floors are hard to repair, if the scratches go through the finish veneer. And typically such floors cannot be sanded and refinished.
You can try the wax crayons found at a home center. I have used them many times to repair furniture, like over brad nails. If it is just the color that you want to repair, apply a stain of the right color; just wipe it on with a rag or paper towel.
