Few things stand out more than a white scratch on a stain prefinished wood floor covered in Aluminum Oxide. This finish makes the floors incredibly durable and long lasting but, when scratched it shows up quite prominently, especially on a dark floor.

There are some very easy ways to repair these scratches in a manner that will help the floors look as good as new, while also protecting the floors from further damage. The first thing to do is clean the floors in and around the scratches. This will remove any dirt and debris and will make the scratch less noticeable.

Once the floors are cleaned, you can use a product called Scratch. This will eliminate the white line that shows up in scratches on aluminum oxide finishes and it will also seal the surface of the scratch. The scratch will still be visible, but it will be much less of an eyesore.

This product can be purchased from any flooring or paint store. If you do not have this product available then there are other products that can be used, such as a wood floor polish or a stain marker. The goal is to fill in the white area of the scratch with a color that matches the surrounding areas of the floor.

Aluminum oxide finished floors do not need as much maintenance as those with a Polyurethane finish but there is still a necessity to regularly sweep them and wipe them down with a damp mop and recommended cleaning product. Regular sweeping, vacuuming or dusting will keep the dust and other contaminants from settling on these hardwood floors and causing further damage. It is also a good idea to place furniture casters on any rolling furniture that will be moving across these floors to avoid gouging the floors or damaging the aluminum oxide finish.
