Anyone have experience doing repair on hardwood floors?
I have one rental with oak floors. The last tenant apparently had furniture with sharp metal feet and also looks like he jumped up & down on it in one corner of the living room.
So now there's about 20 square feet that has scratches and gouges in the floor up to 1/4" deep.
Should I just sand it out and try to feather in the new finish as best I can? The finish that's on there now is at least a few decades old; i.e. is a bit yellow but otherwise natural (clear) finish.
Any tips (other than refinish the entire floor) appreciated! Thanks.
