what finish was applied to the flooring?
Go to Lowe's, get a quart of mineral spirits and 0000 steel wool, pour a bit on the floor and rub lightly with the steel wool.
But before you do that, tell us what the finish is and for how long it has dried
If you really, and I mean REALLY are hard pressed finance wise, or you don't have any time to run to Lowe's, you can substitute the mineral spirits with soapy water, and the steel wool with sandpaper around 600 to 1000 grit sandpaper's gonna clog worse
you might be able to use any sandpaper, but if it's less than 600 grit, be VERY GENTLE! you don't want to strip the finish completely off, you just want to buff it to remove the mark.
but if you do use water, and that finish isn't thick, the water will likely seep through, expand the wood, and then you've really thrown a wrench in the cogs.

Reason: added water part
