Bruised Hardwood Floors


Have you ever had the misfortune to drop something heavy on a hardwood floor leaving an unsightly bruise?  The following instructions will help you repair this.


First, rub the bruised area with 150 grit sandpaper to etch the surface of the floor finish through to the wood fibres. 

Now, place a warm damp cloth over the bruised area and apply heat on top with an iron set for cotton.  The heat from the iron presses moisture from the damp cloth into the wood fibres raising the bruised wood fibres. 

Allow it to dry, and then apply a coat of Briwax, tinted to match the floor colour.  Briwax can be found at your local Windsor Plywood store.

It's Just That Easy!
