HELP! Wood Flooring Stained - and I'm a Renter
I am hoping someone on this forum may be able to advise me on how to go about removing the stain from my wood flooring. I live in an apartment in NYC and I was testing different methods to clean my outdoor cushions. I lay a tarp down in my living and begin cleaning the cushion with an oxiclean solution Ė and lots of it because the cushion kept absorbing all the cleaning solution. I give up and rest the cushion on my deck to dry. Due to the rain fall we have been having I decide to move the cushion in doors to finish drying. I place it at the bottom of my stairs. 12 hours later I go to move the cushion and GASP! I dropped to me knees in shock. The chemical reaction between the oxiclean and water ruined my flooring!
The stain is about 2 feet long, and is black/grey. It reminds me of the water marks left on asphalt after sitting down in a wet towel- but permanent. It appears to be a surface stain but it looks like it has some very very dense areas. I bought 100 grit multipurpose sand paper. Is there anything else I should do? I read Hydrogen Peroxide could be helpful but I canít find it any where. I think it must be a popular item these days. Information on the floors, it doesnít look like there is much of a gloss or sealant on the floors. HELP!
