Hardwood floor scratches


I would like some advice on this matter, I have 3/4" oak flooring, 3 coats of polyurathane, floor is only 3 years old. we now have a little grandchild that is crawling around, with her toys and such, we notice a fair amount of light scrtaches around, its not bad enough (yet) to refinish, they are just hair line in the top coat poly, what can I do to improve the situation, not looking for perfection, just something I can do to help a little, thanks for your help, Gary

Hardwood floor scratches


ON a side note while on the topic, my wife wants to do wood flooring in our kitchen and hall way, I think its a bad idea, seeing how easliy it scratches, and the heavy traffic in this area, I would think tile is a better choice. do you guys agree?

If you have an active house--kids- dogs--gardening(gritty shoes) --I'd tile--
There are a lot of choices in tile--If you use epoxy grout --the dirty grout problem is eliminated.

If you have small children crawling around on your floors, you do not want to use anything that is the slightest bit toxic which can wear off on their hands & then end up in their mouths.

Hardwood floor scratches


If they're only hairline scratches and not too deep, you can try Old English(cleaning isle at HD). They have one for light stain and one for dark stain(i think). THat should mask the scratches, or at least help them blend in with the rest of the floor.
