How To Repair Laminate Flooring

  • First, you’ll need to make sure the area you are trying to fix is clean. Be sure to wipe away any dirt or dust that may be there.
  • Five pre-filled colors come in the Roberts packaging so if they match the color of your floor then use them. If not, the Roberts repair kit provides you with formulas so you can mix the colors that give you the appropriate color to match your floor. To make the mixing easy, Roberts has provided an empty container and a spoon.
  • After mixing the colors well enough then you will want to apply it to the scratch(s). Be sure to wipe away any extra or unwanted paste before it has enough time to dry. You’ll want to avoid the area for a little while so it can dry. Roberts suggests about 1 hour is enough time. If it isn’t dry then give it plenty of time!

In conclusion, Robert’s repair kit is the perfect solution to touching up on scratches. With this product, you will be able to match the color of your laminate and have it looking like brand new again. Try looking for the scratch after you’re done. In other words, save yourself time and money now by getting the job done right.

How To Deal With Damage Beyond Repair

What if the damage will take more than a scratch kit to fix? If your floor is severely damaged then the only option is to replace those planks. Hopefully you don’t have to replace the entire floor but only a few planks. Read the article: How to Replace Damaged Laminate Planks to get an in-depth guide on how to replace your damaged laminate flooring planks.
