Quick Help on Hardwood Flooring Please


Hey everyone, i have a problem. The deal is this, I am selling my house and when i was moving out i needed to get a huge hutch out of our dining room. I put blankets under the front and back and slid it out of the house. This was the way we got it in with no problems. This time it put about a half inch scrath across the floor. It looks as if it is only the finish that is scratched, definatly not the wood. Is there any help on how i could fix this myself. Doing it right but keeping it as cheap as possible. Any help would be great, thanks.

If the wood is not damaged then just lightly sand and put on some poly (finish) to match. I think that they sell "touch-up" pens for this purpose.

If it is lacquer (which isn't used much for flooring any more so depends on the age of the floor) you might consider a light 220 grit sanding of the infected boards (the whole board) and get some brushing lacquer and redo each board. If the floor is poly, don't do this with lacquer as I don't believe you can put lacquer on poly, but I think you can put poly on lacquer.

This also depends on how the floor looks. Does it look like one big sheet of glass or can you see transitions from board to board?
