Q: I have a beautiful home with hardwood floors. I also have 4 young boys who have made marks and dull streaks, and scratches from toys. What can I do, that isn’t too expensive, to make my floor look like new again?
A: Bona Kemi has a nice floor cleaner called Bona Pacific. If there are contaminants on the floor, this may explain dull streaks which the cleaner would remove. Nothing much to do with the scratches except let the finish wear (but not wear off) until you can’t stand the look of it anymore. Then have the finish buffed and re coated.

Do you have any tips for removing scuff marks? They seem to be only on the surface of the floor, i.e. not into the wood itself.
Dog claw scratches wood floors

The finish is aluminum oxide. Iâ€™ve tried the standard scratch repair kits (filler, crayon type fillers, etc.) and…
