Question DetailsAsked on 9/21/2011

How do I get rid of strong old unknown animal urine stains on a 50 yr old oak floor in a bedrm without tearing up the entire floor?

I've tried soap and water, specifically designed over the counter formulas for getting rid of pet urine stains and nothing has worked. I don't want to have to tear up the entire section of flooring because the oak boards are thin and I probably won't be able to match them. I don't want to have to tear up the entire bedroom floor because that floor leads to the hallway that is also oak flooring - it will lead a gap or create a step up if I do. HELP!

my best advice to you is either (2 options )
1- refinish the floor and use dark stain to hide the urine stain.
by sanding,staining then apply 3 coats of palyurathan.
2- if you have a closet in the bedroom ,then use the wood in the closet to repair the urine staind area.
good luck
