I Have Pets. Does Hardwood Scratch Easily?
In a nutshell, yes. Hardwood is a natural material used from nature and despite a variety of different hardness levels (Janka Hardness), wood will scratch.
However, if you would like to retain nature's designs but with a better scratch resistant wear layer*, perhaps check out our HydroGen WaterProof Series Floors.
*Please note that scratches can occur depending on a number of different situations and nothing is scratch proof. For more info, please refer to our warranty guide in our resource page.
