Treat Burn Marks on a Wooden Floor

First, carefully scrape off damaged wood fibers with a sharp pocket knife; handle it gently to avoid damaging surrounding wood. For stained floors, color newly exposed fibers with a matching wood-stain marker; on floors that have darkened with age, the touch-up should blend in. Apply new wax with steel wool; buff with a clean cotton cloth after the wax dries.
