Q: We just purchased a home with hardwood floors throughout; however they all have dark brown stains. We do not know if it is from water damage or from pets; my husband think they are urine stains from the previous owners pets. We would love to keep the hardwood floors and are hoping that the stains can either be removed or be covered.
Can you please tell us what we could do to save our floors? Can we stain them darker to hide the stains if we are unable to remove them?
A: I don’t know of any certain way to remove the stains. If the floor is stained dark, it should help to mask the marks.
