Question Scratch On New Re-finished Hardwood Floors - Can It Be Fixed?


I just got my hardwood floors re-finished before moving into my new house. After the furniture move I noticed 2 scratches in the bedroom; is it possible to fix these scratches?

It looks like just the polyurethane got scratched, and not the actual hardwood floors. The polyurethane only got 1 day to dry; we got delayed on the floors and the timing for the move wasn't exactly what we planned, but the polyurethane wasn't sticky anymore.

Thank you!

If it was just the poly, you may be able to sand and add a little poly and make this mark go away. I don't know if I could pull it off but I have witnessed the before and after from my ex-mother-in-law doing this so I know it can be done.

I'd try scrubbing it with some mineral spirits first - some times you get lucky
