I scratched at few places in my Engineered Hardwood Floor. How do I fix it. Also how do I clean Engineered Hardwood Floor?
I read that I cannot treat it like real hardwood floor. Any answers/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Alok

Start with a washcloth and some rubbing alcohol and gently wipe down where the scratches are.  Take a cotton swab and go through each scratch with some rubbing alcohol to make sure they are cleaned out.  Purchase a floor repair wax kit from your local hardware store (I recommend Picobello Flooring Repair Kit).  Using the putty knife, apply wax to scratches and ensure its all the way inside the cracks.  Once you are done, take the flat edge of knife and scrape off any excess wax. Last step just gently wipe repaired areas with a cloth to wipe up any residual wax.  

For cleaning the floors, make sure you are using a damp (not soaking) mop with a small ammount of floor cleaner.

Hope that helps!

I would try to find out the manufacturer of the product and follow their instructions.

 If you simply want to color them, Old English does a great job.  Bona wood floor cleaner is the best out there.  Hardware stores should have both.

Ailwood Scratch Cover is a coating that masks dents and scratches.  Start with that.  Apply per instructions. Comes in three colors.  Available at most fine paint stores.  Cleaning engineered floors is easy.  Just use a mild cleaner and a damp mop.
