Repairing Scratches On Lacquered Wood Floors

 


If you're searching for help to fix scratches on lacquered flooring, there is one simple answer and that is a lacquer pen. A lacquer pen is a pen which includes wood colored lacquer and permits you to handle random or non-extensive scratches on lacquered flooring. Lacquer pens typically possess a hint that may be adapted to disperse a little or a bigger quantities of lacquer based on the intensity of your scrape.

Broadly , a lacquer pen will make it possible for you to disguise little, place scratches or marginally larger, deeper scratches. Lacquer pens come in many different colors to match the color of your timber. If you are concerned about getting not picked the ideal color, try out the pencil on a discreet part of your flooring before applying it into an apparent part.

When the scratches on your own lacquered floors are extensive, unfortunately a lacquer pencil isn't likely to be an suitable alternative. In case your scratches are the result of day to day wear and tear and then stretch into the entire (or the most important traffic areas) of your flooring, it is most likely the correct time to think about an entire re-sand and re-finish.

A complete, hardwood flooring re-sand and re-finish is far from being a fast job and is something that you need to plan carefully. If you are likely to take on this endeavor yourself, then there are a Couple of things you should think about:

Ensure you've got a fantastic selection of sandpaper from thick, 40 grit, through to nice, which might be anything up to 120 grit.

Eliminate all of your furniture and soft furnishings from the area you are planning to sand. Sanding is a messy business. Remember when moving your furniture to not drag it, lift it instead. Dragging furniture across wooden floors can be really damaging.

When you begin to sand, use the heaviest self indulgent and re-do the ground, working to a finer grit each time (do the same with the edges if you're using an edging sander).

When you've finished sanding, then ensure you vacuum up all the dust which has accumulated on the floor, especially between any gaps in the boards.

Before you re-lacquer your floor, be sure you've left enough time after sanding for any airborne dust to have settled and have been cleared off before moving on to the next stage.

If you are in any doubt about tackling this task yourself, it is probably best to call in the professionals.
