Scratches in new hardwood floor


A friend just had a new oak floor installled 3 weeks ago. It has been sealed and then finished with 2 coats of poly.
They have been very careful but when moving in a very large and heavy refrigerator they put a few scuffs in the floor. They are pretty good scuffs but not through the finish.
Is there anything that they can do to repair these marks?

A knowledgeable floor finisher could probably lightly sand/screen the offending area and recoat it if it is only a scuff in the finish. Doubtfull that's all it is but hey.

You may be able to either tape off the damaged board and sand it down and refinish or buff and recoat the entire new floor.
