|Does anyone know how to remove set in pet stains (urine) from oak hardwood floors? The stains are dark, almost black. They are in a rental property and may be up to a year old. Thank you.|
|Urine Stains - Hardwood floors||05/29/2005|
|While finding this site, checking with wood flooring stores, and the local PetSmart, We accidentally found a solution to the urine stain problem:|
Fill a squirt bottle with full strength Hydrogen Peroxide from the drug store. (The solution is about 3.5% out of the bottle). Squirt the stain and let rest for about 1 minute. You will now be able to easily scrape off the varnish. Apply the solution again liberally. Let it react for at least 2 hours. Depending on how old and how dense the stain, you may have to sand the spot and reapply the peroxide several times. Then it will be necessary of course to refinish the spot.
We have just sanded and refinished a large hardwood floor that has been under a wall to wall carpet for 14 years. Imagine our delight to see blackened urine stains fade away with this process...

|they said PEROXIDE, not bleach. Peroxide bleaches your hair, but it's not CHLORINE bleach, which gets your whites clean.|

|I gave hydrogen peroxide a try and to my shock it works! It is slow going and I am not finished yet but so far have had good results. :-)|
|Tried the hydrogen peroxide. It works! I used it on oak cabinets that the little guy got into and peed in.|
