Topic tags/keywords: question

I’m refinishing a solid maple floor for a neighbour. In one room, there’s ugly brown streaks which I’m fairly sure are from an incontinent cat. (I put the sanding sheets down on the floor and the little bastard pissed on them). Is there any way of lightening these before I re-lacquer, or do they have to stay there for all time as a reminder of Mr Tibbles?

as usual, any suggestions would be most welcome

Replacing the boards will be an option, also you may consider getting rid of mr tibbles, because if you refinish them and the cat continues, it will be right back to square one.

Have your say...
