Coconix Floor and Furniture Repair Kit

Damp cloth

Sandpaper (if needed)

Step 1

Preparing the Area

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

Step 2

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 hardwood floor and prepare the mixture in the empty mixing jar.

Step 3

Filling the Scratches

  • For scratches larger than 1/4 of an inch, use the wood filler to fill the scratches on the hardwood floor.
  • Cut off the required amount of wood filler and knead it until it becomes a uniform color.
  • Apply the filler within 2 minutes after kneading. Press the filler firmly into the scratches 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 wood filler can be sanded, tapped, and drilled.

Step 4

Applying the Repair Compound

  • Apply the repair compound to the damaged area. Start by applying it around the edges of the scratches 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 hardwood floor.

Step 5

Adding Texture (optional)

  • If your wood has grain patterns, designs, or texture, you can recreate them using the small brush and dark colors like Walnut, Mahogany, and Black.

Step 6


  • Use furniture protectors or coasters to prevent scratches from furniture.
  • Dust the hardwood 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 hardwood floor surface. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials.
  • Apply a coat of floor wax or sealant to the hardwood floor surface to protect it from scratches and spills.

It looks a lot better!!!

I really love this product, I posted pictures before and after one application. It already looks a lot better. I would definitely recommend this to my friends. My hardwood floor has different types of shades, I used only the color Walnut, I may try to mix more colors next time. You may notice it, but I am sure your guests won’t.
