Furniture Scratches On Wood Floor

Regardless of what type of finish you use on your wood floor, scratches from chairs and tables will damage it, making it less resistant to dirt and moisture.

Do you have scratches on your wood floor?

On lacquered floors:

Vacuum the floor.

Clean with Wood Floor Cleaner, use a Microfiber Cleaning Pad or Spray Mop for Wood Floor and then apply Wood Floor Polish according to the instructions. Wood Floor Polish repairs smaller micro scratches. If you’re not sure how deep the scratches are, and whether you need to sand your floor,  we recommend you contact a Bona Certified Craftsman who will give you the advice you need.

On oiled floors:

Vacuum the floor. 

Spray the area with Cleaner for Oiled Floors, use Microfiber Cleaning Pad and allow to dry properly.

Apply Oil Refresher according to instructions, use a Microfiber Applicator  Pad.


If you still think the scratches are visible:

Sand the area with very fine sandpaper.

Add oil, and make sure you choose the same oil you used previously. If you’re not sure and need more help, we recommend you contact a Bona Certified Craftsman.


Put felt pads on table and chair legs.

Don't drag furniture across the wood floor, carry it instead.

Avoid walking on the floor with high heels.
