When we built our new home, I installed Brazilian Cherry real 3/4" t&g hardwood floors, pre finished.
A year or so later, my wife wanted a product to clean them, we happended to be in the Woodsmith Store, and were told to use MinWax Wood Floor Cleaner.
Big mistake. It left a film on the floor, that we can't get off. When you walk on the floor, it leaves smudges from the foot prints, we never had that on the new floor.
We cleaned it as good as we could, and then me like a dummy believed the TV commercial for "Orange Glo Wood Floor Cleaner and Polisher" another colosal mistake. It looked great, except in a couple of places where she hadn't been smooth in the application, and of course they were in obvious places, so I though what the heck, lets put it on again. Big mistake #3.
Now we have a real mess. We went to Home Depot, and the lady in the floor dept. told me that she had taken all of their products home and used them and all left residue even the most expensive one. She said that the only one that did not was the Bruce Hardwood cleaner system. She also said that we just needed to find the correct product to get rid of the survace applications, as the floor was most likely Aluminum Oxide Coated, rather that Polyurethane like I thought.
We have not yet used the Bruce System.
Do any of you have any thoughts short of Sanding.
Here is a pic of the floor.
Thanks for any help in advance.
