How to remove paint from laminate hardwood floor

How to remove paint from laminate hardwood floor

There are a lot of ways to get rid of old paint stuck on your laminate hardwood floors.

In today’s article, I’m going to recommend what I personally believe is the best safe way to do it.

Please note: I’ve also done this a couple of times and this method has never given me any issues such as ruining my floors.

You need pure Klean-Strip on the surface that has paint, wait a few seconds and then wipe with a soft cloth.

There will be a little residue left behind, after that you need to wash the floor using the Bruce Hardwood and Laminate Floor Cleaner to get rid of the residue that was left by the Klean-Strip.

Some people recommend rubbing alcohol to remove paint from floors, but that doesn’t work on old dried paint, Klean-Strip is VERY strong and a bit more expensive than rubbing alcohol.


Also rubbing alcohol is usually isopropyl and Klean-Strip is ethanol, it removes even super dried paint stuck on the floor without damaging the color of the floor.

There are a lot of ways to get rid of dried paint but you need to be very careful on what you use because some product can easily damage your laminate floors.

Laminate floors or hardwood floors s are very sensitive, most paint removing products were not designed to use used on sensitive floors like hardwood that is why I prefer klean-strip simple because ive used it before and it didn’t discolor my floors.

Why do I recommend Klean-Strip for removing paint?

Because it will never damage your floors and also won’t discolor your floors after the paint is gone.
