I believe they make a filler that you can fill the holes in with. Its like a putty and it comes in several different colors. Check at Loewe's or Home Depot.

Go to a flooring store and get the patching material.

I had laminate flooring laid in dining/kitchen area. The chairs have rubbed laminate off even though we put felt pads under chair legs. What can we do to cover the damage without replacing the floor?

If you want to cover the damage and prevent further damage I would suggest purchasing a large area rug for the room that is large enough to accomodate where the chairs are being pulled out.

I had a friend visit who uses a walker. It left a hairline scratch on my laminate floor. What would be a good way to fill in the scratch? Is there some product I could use to lightly fill in the scratches?

To simply mask the scratches, apply shoe polish of the same color to tint the scratch to match the rest of the flooring.

If you're talking about the planks separating at the ends, you can use the heel of a rubber-soled shoe you are wearing, to "kick" it back into place, eliminating the gap (you may have to do this for each plank in the row). Then, where the floor meets the wall (follow the floor boards that have the gap problem to the end, where they meet the wall, on either or both ends), there should be a 1/4" gap, filled with silicone caulk, to create a cushion for expansion.

You may have to remove a threshold or shoe molding to get to the expansion space, but odds are that there is either no silicone caulk, or not enough to fill the space, thus allowing the gap to open.

I had an Airwick plug in fall out of the wall outlet and the contents leaked on the laminate flooring. It took off the top colored layer of the floor. What can I do to repair this?

I have high gloss laminate flooring in my house. I used Orange Glo and ruined it. To remove it, I used a dish sponge (on the rough side) and soapy water to remove it.
