Just inspected one of my houses the (very good) tenants are leaving after five years and the floating floor inside the back door is extremely scratched and worn. I think these floors were only cheap and the wood pattern has actually worn off in a couple of small places. I rang a floor specialist who said the only remedy is to replace the boards. I dont think I have any of the same boards and the floor is about 12 years old so probably cant match it. Has anyone tried to repair a floating floor by cleaning the scratches so they are not black and painting the colours back into the worn spots? Maybe I could paint some clear varrnish over the area afterwards. Anyone else had this problem?
