We did these floors last week. They were 1.5 inch red oak hardwood, they we beat up, but they did have any urine or water stains in the bedrooms, living room, or dining room. The finish was not to bad and they were a lower grade oak, which is darker then a select grade. This was in north Minneapolis and it is common in those houses to have lower grade hardwood flooring.
We started sanding them and they cleaned up about as good as I thought. However, if you look at the picture below these floors are in really bad shape. This is the kitchen, it had tile, and laminate flooring over the hardwood. The owners removed it. It is very common for hardwood floors in kitchens that have been covered with another type of flooring to be very water damage.
I can’t remove water damage completely that is affordable to most customers. We can do our best, but it your probably going to have to live with what you have, unless you want to replace the wood or stain it dark. I wish I could, but sometimes you have to play the hand you are dealt.
But as you can see, we got the rooms cleaned up and they look a lot better. Once they paint the trim and the walls the house will look very nice.
The kitchen didn’t clean up perfectly just as I thought, but if you its better then it was. I always address this is customers at the estimate if there are water or urine stains.
