How To: Remove Dry Paint from Hardwood Floors

Here is a super quick and easy way to remove dry, old paint from your hardwood flooring.  

Supplies Needed
Clean, Dry Rag

My home was built in 1920 and has seen quite a few paint color changes over the years, painting that maybe wasn't the tidiest of jobs.  I have quite a few paint splatters on my hardwood and over time have slowly been removing them.
All paint on your floors does not require such a harsh product to be used, sometimes just some rubbing alcohol on a rag will do the job, or even a baby or makeup remover wipe will work.

For older, or thicker paint spots this method works best.

**Please follow the directions on the back of the bottle and first use the product on an inconspicuous area of flooring to access its effects on your flooring and finishes.

water seems to always find its way into basements. One of the most common causes of basement flooding in Virginia, Maryland and Washington D.C. homes and businesses is sump pump failures due to power outages after storms.

Quite recently, the main decision you had was the antiquated strong wood tongue and section strips in maple or oak.
