How to repair a scratched wood floor

Mr Sander has a range of tools and techniques at our disposal to repair scratched wood floors. We can remove scratches from parquet floors too!

Here’s how we repair scratches on wooden floors:

Assess the scratch and the floor

Our first task is to perform a site visit to inspect your scratched wooden floor and assess the type of wood and finish of the floorboards. This way, we can identify the depth of the scratch and determine what wood floor scratch repair process to use to then provide an accurate quote and timescale for you.

Fixing scratches on wood floors

Depending on the floor, the finish and the extent of the scratch, there are a couple of ways to fix scratches on wood floors:


If the scratch is minor and not too deep, we may be able to blend it to make it invisible. Depending on the wood, that may involve a good buff after using a blending pencil, finish restorer or specialist paint to fill the scratch to make it look like it’s disappeared. 


Slightly deeper scratches may just require a carefully applied layer of the same finish to the scratch. This can help it blend into the rest of the floor.

Sanding and refinishing

Deeper scratches may require sanding as well as refinishing. This can be useful in older floors or floors with lots of scratches.

We can isolate a single scratch to sand or sand and refinish the entire floor, it’s entirely up to you but we’ll offer advice and suggestions on the best option.

Filling and refinishing

The deepest scratches may need specialist wood filler. We sand the floor down, fill the scratch with a quality wood filler and then refinish the area so it matches the rest of your floor. It’s a more involved process but generates some amazing results!

Whichever process we use, rest assured that by the end, the scratch will have disappeared and you’ll have a wonderful wood floor to be proud of once more!

What if the wooden floors are too scratched?

Mr Sander can fix all kinds of scratches, no matter how deep or how visible they are.

If a simple wood floor scratch repair isn’t possible, we are experts at floorboard renovation and restoration and will have alternative solutions to make your wooden floors look good as new again.
