Damp cloth

Sandpaper (if needed)

Step 1

Preparing the Area

  • Carefully remove any dirt or debris from the damaged area.
  • Clean the area and remove any dust.
  • Wipe down the area with a damp cloth and let it dry thoroughly.

Step 2

Filling the Holes

  • For holes larger than 1/4 of an inch, use the wooden filler to fill the worm-eaten holes on the wooden floor.
  • Cut off the required amount of wooden filler and knead it until it becomes a uniform color.
  • Apply the filler within 2 minutes after kneading. Press the filler firmly into the holes until curing is noticeable. Do not leave a bulge.
  • For a smooth surface, rub the area with a damp cloth prior to hardening. After 1 hour, the wooden filler can be sanded, tapped, and drilled.

Step 3

Matching the Color

  • If your repair requires a custom color, refer to the Color Mixing Guide found in the kit to match the color of the wooden floor and prepare the mixture in the empty mixing jar.

Step 4

Applying the Repair Compound

  • Apply the repair compound to the damaged area. Start by applying it around the edges of the holes and work your way towards the center to avoid air bubbles.
  • Use the spatula for larger applications and the brush for surface applications and detail touch-ups.
  • Smooth out the surface and wipe off the excess with a paper towel.

Step 5

Drying and Additional Layers

  • Allow several hours for the repair compound to dry until it is no longer sticky to the touch.
  • If needed, apply additional layers until the repaired area is level with the surrounding area of the floor.

Step 6


  • Sand the area lightly with fine-grit sandpaper to make the repair smooth and even with the surrounding floor.

Step 6


  • Use furniture protectors or coasters to prevent damages from furniture.
  • Dust the wood floor regularly with a soft cloth or brush to remove any dirt or debris.
  • Use a mild cleaning solution and a damp cloth to clean the wood floor surface. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials.
  • Apply a coat of floor wax or sealant to the wood floor surface to protect it from scratches and spills.
