Here's a good question culled from our last open thread, included with a helpful answer from one of our other readers (we love the sense of community!):
I finally asked my landlady if I could take out my ugly grey carpet to expose the wood floor underneath. Well, taking out the rug was easy and the pre-war floors are beautiful, except for the crappy contractor who didn't bother to cover the wood floor when he was painting. I was trying to take off the paint (but not the stain) w/ enviro paint strippers, but that sure isn't working! -SydneyBristow

Citrasolv is also mentioned in a related topic post about caring for hardwood floors, and there's plenty of reader supplied tips here worth taking a peek back at.
