In most cases. Many people do not understand that the pads of dog’s feet are like sandpaper. Every time your dog goes from a dead stop to a full run he/she is sanding the surface of your floor with their paws. The N-Hance finish is self leveling and will fill in surface scratches that are created by household pets. Pets must remain off of your new N-Hance finish for a specific amount of time. Ask your N-Hance technician for additional information.
