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 – 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 THIS! (see photo) I dropped to me knees in shock. The chemical reaction between the oxiclean and water ruined my flooring! It looks like its a surface stain but as you can see there are some very very dense areas. I have more marks around my apartment (from moving the cushion around) but they just looked like dirt stains (my landlord probably won’t notice those). I bought 100 grit multipurpose sand paper. Is there anything else I should do? I read Hydrogen Peroxide could be helpful but I can’t find it any where. I think it must be a popular item these days. Information on the floors, it doesn’t look like there is much of a gloss or sealant on the floors. HELP!
