I have hardwood oak floors in my house. I'm finally getting around to
ripping up the 25 year-old carpeting and am finding green bumpy stains
all over the wood. It's like a green ooze that hardened on the wood
(not sure how to describe it). So far, I have only done the dining
room, but now I'm concerned. I tried liquid cleaners, solvents, and a
variety of chemicals that are supposed to remove stuff from wood, but
nothing is getting this gunk off. First of all, what is it? Is is
something from the old carpet padding? Second -- if I hire someone to
sand the floor, will that get it off? I don't want to hire someone if
it won't come off -- I'll just bite the bullet and get new carpeting
(although I don't want to). any advice would be appreciated.
Best would be to get a few estimates on price but i will bet its just
carpet pad or surface mildew , nothing to worry about. But then a Pro
at your house will know. Also dont go for 2 coat jobs, 4 is better,
kitchens more. The first 2 coats realy seal and dont build film
