impressions in wood


hi, we rolled a heavy television across a pine floor, did not realize it would leave indentions in the wood, is there any way to get them out without replacing?

Put a damp towel over it and use a steam iron. Just don't let it get too hot. Never done it to a floor but I have taken dents out of pine furniture that way.

But if it swells the wood TOO much, wait until it dries completely before trying to sand it back down!
