Repair bubbles in wood floor finish


The finish on my wood floors has popped up from my high heels, and I need to fix it!

I'm guessing that if I apply heat somehow to melt the finish bubbles, that could work but I don't want to make the issue worse.

Image attached of one of the many holes. Thanks for your help!

Repair bubbles in wood floor finish


What kind of wood is that--It looks like Luan to me---

Heating the finish will not help--the finish will not melt--it has actually come loose from the wood.

That's why I asked for the type of wood. I find some woods will not hold a finish --a small trauma can pop the finish loose because it's not bonded to the surface of the wood.---Mike---

I'm guessing from the OP's name she didn't install this and just wants a quick fix.

This sounds like a tenant who caused damage to a cheap low quality floor--while doing something any high quality floor could take.

Shame on the landlord!

Repair bubbles in wood floor finish


The floors are made of Brazillian Cherry.

The condo is gorgeous with granite countertops, floor to ceiling stone bathrooms, and grown molding in the kitchen, living room, and bedrooms.

My landlord is a really great guy, but the floors may not be the best quality. I'd like to be able to fix this on my own if possible, as I probably shouldn't have been wearing heels inside anyway.

Any ideas? Thanks so much!
