How do I repair a scratch in my flooring?

Got a scratch? Our collections come with top-notch scratch-resistant coatings but no floor is scratch proof.

How to Prevent Scratches

  1. Keep your floors clean - Regularly sweep and vacuum your floors. Dust acts as an abrasive. Keeping your floors dust-free will prolong the life of your finish and prevent micro-scratches.
  2. When moving appliances or heavy furniture, we recommend laying a Masonite panel on your floor for the best protection.
  3. Use felt protectors on furniture to prevent scratches when moving. As a general rule of thumb, the heavier the item, the wider the floor protector needed. We recommend felt pads at least 1” in diameter.
  4. Be careful with rolling casters. They can damage the floor. If you choose to use them, look for the widest possible wheel you can find.
