How to remove scratches in hardwood flooring
How to Remove scratches can make the appeal of any beautiful,hardwood floor There are ranges of scratches and each requires a different fix. Read through the different degrees of damage and then follow the instructions to fix them.

Surface Scratches

Thing You Will Need:
Hardwood floor cleaner
Protective coating
Steps to Remove the Scratch:
Surface scratches are the easiest to fix because only the top protective coating needs to be repaired.
In these cases, clean the scratched area with a soft cloth and hardwood floor cleaner. The area needs to be free of any dirt and grime that could get sealed in during the later steps.
Rinse with another cloth moistened with clean water.
Allow the area to dry completely.
Once the area is clean and dry, apply a new layer of the protective coating. This can be a shellac, sealant or other finish.
Allow the surface to dry overnight.
Minor Scratches (penetrate the surface of the wood under the protective coating)

Thing You Will Need:
Hardwood floor cleaner
Steel wool or fine-grade sandpapers
Wax wood repair stick
Steps to Remove the Scratch:
Begin by cleaning the surface with a quality wood floor cleaner. Be sure to remove all traces of dirt so they are not pushed further into the wood.
Use the steel wool to carefully rub over the scratched area. Only rub the scratched area, and always rub with the grain of the wood. Rubbing across the grain will increase the mark and make it more noticeable.
Buff the scratched area with the steel wool until it is removed.
To help the scratched area blend in, feather the edges of the scratch slightly by buffing onto the surrounding surfaces. Keep the feathering to a minimum to avoid making the area more noticeable. Your goal is only to blend in the edges.
Next, rub the wax stick over the scratched area. This will fill in the scratch and help it to blend in with the surrounding area.
Allow the wax to set up for 15 minutes.
Use a soft cloth to buff over the area using a large back and forth motion.
Finish by cleaning the area with a clean cloth.
Deep Scratches

Removing deep scratches and gauges in wood flooring requires much more work and precision. These floors need to be stripped, repaired and refinished.

Polyurethane Coated Floors

Thing You Will Need Mineral spirits
Scouring pad
Steps to Remove the Scratch:
To remove scratches from polyurethane coating, moisten a scouring pad with mineral spirits.
Gently rub the moistened pad over the scratched area.
Wipe with a clean cloth and allow the area to dry.
Recover the area with polyurethane to provide a fresh finish.
Do not use wax on polyurethane floor

How to eliminate floor squeaks
How to eliminate floor squeaks .If you can access floor joists from underneath,drive wood screws up through the subfloor to draw hardwood flooring and the subfloor together .Drill pilot holes and make certain the screws aren,t long enough to break through the top of the floorboards.Determine the combined thickness of the floor and subfloor by measuring at cutouts for pipes.When you can’t reach the floor from underneath,subface nail the floor boards to the subfloor with ring shank flooring nails.drill pilot holes cose to the tongue side edge of the board and drive the nail at a slight angle to increase their holding power. Whenever possible, nail into studs.Countersink the nail with a nail set and fill the holes with tinted wood butty.Eliminate squeaks in a carpeted floor by using a special floor fastening device,called a squeeeeek no more, to drive screws through the subfloor into the joists.The device guides the screw and controls the depth.The screw has a scored shank,so once it’s set,you can break the end off just below the surface of the subfloor.In an unfinished basement or crawl space, copper water pipes are usually hung from floor joists.listen for pipes rubbing against joists loosen or replace wire pipe hangers to silence the noise.Pull the pointed ends of the hanger from the wood,using a hammer or pry bar. lower the hanger just enough so the pipe is’t touching the joist,making sure the pipe is held fimly so it won,t vibrate.Renail the hanger, driving the pointed end straight into the wood.The boards or sheeting of a subfloor can separate from the joists, creating gaps.Where gaps are severe or appear above several neighboring joists,the framing may need reinforcement,but isolated gapping can usually be remedied with hardwood shims.Apply a small amount of wood glue to the shim and squirt some glue into the gap.Using a hammer,tap the shim into place until it’s snug.shimming too much will widen the gap, so be careful. Allow the glue to dry before walking on the floor.
