MORE ON REMOVING TOUGH STAINS FROM HARDWOOD FLOORS (PART 3)
3 May 2012
Let’s consider a couple of other tactics you can use to try and ensure that stain on your wood flooring does not spoil your enjoyment of your home environment.
Some people advise that lacquer thinner can obliterate nail polish marks on a wooden floor, but a word of caution: the floor finish may be taken away too, so be very careful if you go ahead with this form of cleaning. Only apply small amounts of the thinner using a white rag.
Deep stains can be removed using fine 120 grit sandpaper, but as we have been warning, this type of floor maintenance can take away some of the finish. Therefore, the floor will need a bit of touching up to get it looking great again.
Whatever you do, just make sure you assess the situation first before you jump ahead and tackle the stain. The type of finish is a big determinant in how you should respond to this challenge.
And for the most sensitive of floors there is another form of action you can take, which is not as costly as you might initially think. If the worst comes to the worst, you can always rely on the professionals to sand and refinish the floor, which will take care of this problem once and for all.
