The newly installed engineered hickory may be ruined
One of the last jobs to be done on our new build was the engineered hickory flooring and it may be ruined. The floor was hazy with whitish smears all over it.
After the floor was laid, the developer ordered paper to be placed over the new floor in an effort to protect it. After the painters finished, the paper was removed. The installers then used and reused cloths to clean up adhesive.
The floor looked dirty so the developer had a cleaner come in and damp mop it.
The floor looked terrible still.
Then the flooring folks came in and wiped stuff all over the floor and it looks great;however, the next day when I touched it with my white socked toe, it colored my sock.
We are supposed to close on this house in a few days and walk through tomorrow. From reading the flooring manufacturer's installation guidelines, mistakes have been made that ruined the finish and voided the warranty.
