Q: How do I get burn marks off my wood floors? They are cigarette burn marks. I don’t want to get floors redone for a few little burnt spots.
A: If the burns are confined to the surface only, you may be able to moisten fine steel wool with appropriate floor cleaner and rub it out. don’t use steel wool if the finish is waterborne. If the stain is deeper, you may have to use a hand scraper, fine sandpaper, then apply several thin coats of finish with a small brush. You may have a better blend if you lightly sand the entire board, and on the final coat of finish on the burn mark, coat the entire board.
Burnt mark from a cigarette on my hardwood floor
Q imported from our old site, Face Lift Floors: I have a 1/2 inch burnt mark from a cigarette on my hardwood floor, how can I remove it? The wood was already stained and had polyurethane on it when installed.
A: Depending how deep the burn is, you can perhaps rub the burn out with fine sandpaper. Stain the spot and when dry (make sure you lightly abrade the entire board when sanding out the burn) recoat the entire board with a thin coat of finish.
