We pulled up the carpet in our living room and there is a wood floor(original floorboards to the house) and they are painted with a white primer. We want to temporarily have this be our floor for now, but I want to know how to clean it(there is carpet glue on the floor, some of the paint is starting to come off and the natural wood grain is showing, and there is some stains that soaked through to the floor(kids, pets, etc.) Would using very very diluted bleach and water be ok, wipe up any water left with a towel be ok to do? Not that worried about the paint/primer coming off because once cleaned I was thinking maybe a light sanding, water seal, a stain and some polyurethane finish until the next part can be done. Which is a plywood floor eventually to strengthen the room cuz if the dogs or kids run through the living room the whole room shakes. Then do the same treatment to the plywood until we can save money to get a better floor.
