I recently installed new oak flooring. I had a party and after the party, I noticed small dents all over the floor. It looks like someone with high heels made the dents. How does this happen to oak flooring? My flooring was on the cheaper side, but's still oak. Is cheaper oak flooring from younger oak trees that aren't as hard as older ones? That's the only thing I can think of. My father has oak flooring (was a little more expensive) and I've never noticed dents in his floor. I really want to know why this happens so I can avoid it in the future. It's so frustrating to have my hard work and money go to waste. Any information, opinions, or guesses are greatly appreciated.
