THesee floors most likely have a baked on polyurthane finish. Lumber Liquidators have repair products for this type of scratching. In the absence of that product, I would use a rubbed-on type furniture finish. It will penetrate the surface, minimize the color difference and maintain the satin non-slippery floor finish. This is NOT a wax product, it is Formsby or other varnish type. If you use a polyurethane it is likely to lay ontop of existing finish and look more like a patch job since the finish may not match the o riginal (that is, satin, semi-gloss or matt) Best, Norton

it looks like your floor surface is dameged
laminate floor cant be refinished,and their is no cleaner to hide the scratches.
but you can try to buy factory repair kit from from local distributor
(its epoxy colored patch ) and it only can repair deep scratches.
or use area rug to hide the problem,
