I have orginal hardwood flooring in a 1954 home. In one of the small bedrooms, the previous owner never used a drop cloth when painting or plastering. There are paint drops and smears over the entire floor. I am not in a position to sand and restain at the moment but would like to remove the paint as much as possible without ruining the exsisting finish. Is there a way to do this?
Appreciate any comments/suggestions.
Hi Carla! Yes there is a way to take off the paint if you are really careful. There is a product called goo gone paint remover. It works great but seeing the paint is on the hardwood you will still have to be careful that you don't lift the finish off the floor itself. Just be careful and if it does happen to lift the finish it will still be better than having paint on the floor. You could also use a razor knife but you may end up digging grooves into your floor. Good Luck hope this was helpful.
