Wood scratch causes can have a different nature, but the results are always the same – unattractive, worn and dull flooring no one would like to have at their home. Well, this is only the top of the iceberg, because scratches not only affect the beauty of your wooden floor but also can be a sign of a growing issue. Finer dents are the better option, caused by high heels, furniture translocation and pet nails. In that case, scratches affect only the surface, which is the protective finishing layer. Yes, they may look bad, but at least usually they don't cause serious problems.
However, sometimes the scratches are so deep that they penetrate through the finishing layer and affect the bare wood underneath, which is a pretty bad juncture for your flooring and for you. Especially in high traffic areas, where the finishing layer is worn and not renewed soon, the chance the wood gets damaged increases. Don't worry, because we have good news for all our clients!

Don't rush to blame your pets and children for the dents! Scratches can pop on the floor’s surface for so many reasons. For example, if the installation is exposed for longer on high traffic, high-temperature amplitudes, sun damage, etc. the wood gets thinner with time and starts to crack. It is really important for structural gaps to be left during fitting also and the subfloor beneath to be completely dry because moisture can also cause loose planks and cracking and these are the reasons for scratches. We think that floor scratches exist not only because of outside causes but also because of inside processes and that is the nature of the wood. However, for an untrained eye, it is hard to spot the difference and that is the reason we provide free site visits in London, so our technicians can inspect and find the perfect wood scratch repair service strategy.
