Q: I was ironing curtains on my wood floor. Even though I had a barrier protecting the wood, I still had damaged from the heat of the iron. It looks like the top layer was melted off in lots of little bubbles. It’s oak flooring that was just refinished. What can we do?
A: Likely the area where the finish is damaged will have to be rubbed down with fine sandpaper and another coat of finish applied. When that is dry have the entire room buffed and recoated if the patch doesn’t blend and stands out as different.
Follow-up Q: Thank you for your response! Do you know what the cost would be for a 15 by 11 room to do that work?
A: It really varies from area to area. You will have to make a few calls locally to get an idea.

We put down duct tape on our hard-wood floor (oops) in a big circle to teach our pre-schoolers some coordination lessons. It was walked on pretty firmly over time and when we finally removed it found it had removed the finish and now a semi-white/light ring is on the floor.
How do we repair this?
