Removing stains from hardwood flooring is an important task to preserving its luster and value. Spills, outside moisture, and water damage can come from anywhere. If you don’t treat it quickly and properly then serious damage can occur. But don’t worry, there are quick and easy ways to get those stains out of hardwood floors.
With some basic guidance and knowledge, stains are a thing of the past. Generally, there are two types of wood stains: those in which water has penetrated the wood flooring (looks like a black mark), or when the water has only penetrated the finish of the wood flooring (looks like a white mark). First, you’ll need to know which kind of stain you have.
What does it look like?
White looking stains mean the water/moisture has not seeped into the grain of the wood, yet, and these stains are much easier to remove. Start by using a fine steel wool soaked in lemon oil. Gently rub the spot with the steel wool. Often this is all you need to do. Lemon oil is a lubricant, not a stain remover, so it’s the steel wool that’s doing the work.
If your stain is black, that means moisture has absorbed into the wood. This can be more difficult to remove. You’ll actually need to sand down the affected area to remove the finish and access the wood. After lightly sanding the area you can use a regular household cleaner, like bleach, to work out the stain. Try cleaning it multiple times, leaving several hours between tries. If this does not work, use a commercial wood bleach. After time and some effort, most of these stains come clean.
