Q: We have about an 80 year old house and it has what I assume to be oak hardwood flooring. The flooring is textured. When we were in the process of moving in a full can of latex flat white paint got tipped over and the top came off. Almost the entire can of paint spilled onto the floor. We cleaned up a much as we could but some of it soaked into the “groove” in the textured flooring and I can’t get it out. I’ve tried water and below grease, ******, WD-40, and light scraping. I don’t care if the floors need recoating. I just need the paint up. Any ideas?
A: I am surprised that the boards in this area have not cupped. I think it quite likely you will need to change the floor in that area.
