Q: I must decide on light or dark wood flooring. I love the look of the darker wood, but I have been told that scratches look glaring on darker wood.
Is this true, and how do you maintain them?
A: Scratches don’t look great on any colour. Darker colours reveal house dust more.
Use appropriate products to keep the finish clean. If it is a top coat, use cleaners provided by such companies as Poloplaz, Dura Seal, Min Wax, Basic Coating, Mirage etc. Vacuum regularly and use felt pads on the bottom of furniture legs.
