Oak floor resurfacing, water damaged corner ideas
More questions from this rookie...
I've already sanded and restained/sealed the original oak hardwood floors in my 1953 bungalow. Just tore up the carpet in another room and found what appears to be a water stain of some kind in the corner (see pics). The boards feel and sound solid in the area, but the gaps between the boards is now a little wider than the rest of the room where the water stain is. I am assuming that whatever was spilled on the floor here caused the boards to shrink just a little. Anyways, what is the "easy way" to deal with this? I am not looking to cut out and replace these boards as they still seem solid and not rotted, and I dont mind a little discoloration (I think it adds character) but the gaps bother me. Also, there are about a million little holes from staples I pulled up. Is there some sort of product that is like a liquid wood filler that I can spread over the floor before sanding it down to solve both of these problems? Any outside the box ideas are welcome!
Thanks for all the help gents!
