20191007_145838.jpg I have maple hardwood flooring throughout the first floor of my home. It was finished using a water based matte finish. The problem i'm having is it scratches so easily. I am very careful cleaning and have felt pads on all furniture. I had done in 2018. This does not seem normal to me. Every day i am finding new scratches. What is the reason for this? I know a darker floor will show more but this doesn't seem right!

Do you dust mop your floors? If so u should be using a microfiber dust head. Looks like you may have some debris in that thing that are scratching your floors and you don't realize it?

A protective paint should be applied to the wood floor, and the floor should be maintained for two to three years.
