Fortunately, you don't have to pull up the blemished planks and replace them with new ones. Instead, you can repair high gloss laminate on your own using the following everyday items that you probably already have on hand.
As great as today's high gloss laminate products are, however, they are not completely impervious to all minor damage. Over time, you might start to notice some scrapes and scuffs spoiling your floor's appearance, chiefly in areas that are frequented by pets and small children.
Glued Laminates Initially, all laminate floors required the use of glue to stabilize the tongue and groove connection. Eventually some laminates arrived pre-glued, needing the application of a bit of moisture to hold the joints together. Glue laminates are quickly becoming a thing of the past as they require more work on the part of the installer, and more and more homeowners are doing their own installations.
It is important that you keep this kind of floor clean. Any dust, dirt, and sand particles may scratch the decorative surface over time in any high traffic areas. One important thing to remember is that you will need to keep laminate flooring relatively dry. Any water/moisture can cause the planks to swell, unless they have water resistant coatings and even that will only take so much. Water spills need not be a cause for concern if wiped up quickly and does not sit for a prolonged period of time.
Baking soda. Baking soda is celebrated for having a multitude of uses, so it should come as no surprise that it helps remove scrapes and scuffs from laminate flooring. Mix a couple tablespoons of baking soda with some warm water until you end up with a pasty substance. Next, use a cloth to dab paste onto the scuff marks and rub them away.
