Wood dents

How do I get rid of these dents in my wood floor?

Hi Khalida, one of the old tricks in the book is to try to steam it out with a steam iron.

The cellular structure of the wood has been compromised, it’s been crushed, the fast action of the creation of steam blows out the cell structure back near to it’s original form. You have to spray the dent with water and let it absorb a little and then use an iron. Use some greaseproof paper, set your iron to the lowest steam setting, and don’t overdo the heat or you could potentially scorch it.
