Dogs claws and children who carelessly play and pull things across the floor will scratch the floor. When it comes to scratch resistance, the hardened floor is just like other hardwood floors. Many people choose a lacquered floor to get extra durability. When the surface treatment is scratched in several places, you can either replace the damaged planks or apply a refresher over the floor surface. A hard wax oiled floor is slightly more sensitive to surface scratches than a lacquered floor, but with the right care and maintenance, these surface scratches are hidden relatively effectively.
