I kept one of my plants in the hardwood floor area and forgot to place
the plate at the bottom. After 2 weeks I realised my floor was soaked
with water and there were black stains on the floor?
Is there any remedy for it that I can do myself instead of hiring
contractors? I am very inexperienced in handy work, so please give me
thorough instructions to follow through. Your help will be highly
Removing that stain and refinishing the floor is not something a novice
with no experience can do!. I also would ant to know that any
contractor would know what he was doing.. Experience and knowing what
and how to use is a heap big factor here. When you get the cost you
might want to just cover the spot and live with it.
Perhaps you can read my post about treating hardwood decks or floors ,
made a while back. I used Oxiclean. Try a couple teaspoons in a quart.
Lighty wipe the floor and let dry. Reapply as needed. This may leave
some kind of spot in this area. First try wetting just the spot and see
if that works.
move the plant
let it dry for quite some time
sand the finish off and around it a fair bit
sand till most of the stain is gone, it won't all go away
bleach the area that is still stained
don't sand after bleaching, or you will have to do it again
