I'm hoping I can get some help with a problem. We have Bruce flooring in our house and were talked into putting a coating on it that was supposed to keep the shine and "protect" the wood. Over time the coating has bubbled and cracked in places.
In hindsight we know this was a big mistake, but want to try and correct it. Unfortunately, we do not know the name of the coating that was placed on the floor.
I have been able to pull it up in some places very easily, but where the wood grain is uneven or where it was applied in thin coats it is very difficult to get up. The coating seems to be composed of two layers. A flexible top layer and shiny bottom layer - sorry for my bad description. When it comes up in one piece it is almost like an epoxy sheet.
Luckily, I do have a test plank that the coating was applied to, but don't know what to try first. I would greatly appreciate any suggestions on how to tackle this project more efficiently than using a pocket knife :)
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
