We had our wood floors refinished about 5 years ago in Park Ridge. However, we have 2 big dogs and their claws have scratched the heck out of our floors at the landing at the bottom of our stairs. What's puzzling is that the wood under the polyurethane is so much brighter than the poly. The poly looks really dirty despite my attempts to clean it (I've tried Murphy's, Quick Shine and vinegar). Short of refinishing our floors again, does anyone know of a way to make these scratches less noticeable? Can I somehow lighten the poly all over so that the scratches aren't as obvious?

Maybe try a magic eraser in a small area? I love that darn thing!

Vinegar will damage this.

Looks like the wood was stained topped with a poly that had a stain. But no, you can't lighten the polyurethane.

Nothing is going to make that floor look entirely right again short of screening it and putting down a new coat of poly
