Damaged wood floor- PLEASE HELP!!!!


Hi. I just moved into a new house with a brand new wood floor that was finished.
I made a party in the house and unfortunately from moving the furniture for the party there were many actual cuts in the wood. As they are unnoticeable I do not care as that is part of living in a house.
However my infant son spilled some oil on the floor and it apparently stained one of the cuts to the point where it is now quite noticeable.
Short of rescraping the floor, Is there anything I can do to minimize the dmage or to make it unnoticeable? there is an actual cut in the wood, not just in the finish. i do not know why the oil would stain the cut.

Thanks alot!!!!"

Worst case scenerio, cut the bad board out and replace it. Hopefully there are some left over pieces from when the floor was laid. Best case scenerio, buy some woodfiller that closely matches the wood and fill in the gouge. Or you could hand sand the bad board,( restain if necessary) and apply a couple of coats of polyurethane. Could you post a picture of the damage?

Thanks guys!
As soon as I can get my hands on a digital cmaera, i will post picture of damage. may take a day or so!)(I know- i am the only person in the world without a digital camera!)
There is no wood left from the original laying so that option is out.

A friend of mine suggested fingernail polish remover to remove the oil and OLD ENGLISH to fill the gouge. Does that make sense?

Thanks again-and thanks again Florcraft for sending me here!

Hi. One more quick question.

If the scratch did penetrate the finish which it appears to have done, do I have to be concerned when I wash the floor that water is ruining the wood?

Thanks

You should never use water to clean your wood floor. There are several wood floor cleaners available from wood flooring manufacturers. There are several web sites on care and cleaning of wood floors a Google or Yahoo search will provide more specific information than we can here if you know the manufacture of your flooring go to their web site for maintainance advice.
