Best way to protect hardwood floors while using chemical stripper
I'm getting ready to use PeelAway 7 on my fireplace interior brick. This should remove the 8000 layers of paint colors applied from the rainbow color pallet over the years. Is there something wrong with leaving brick alone? Does it take the same will-power that not scratching a mosquito bite takes? Honestly....!
My floors are beautiful, finished heart-pine. As some of you here have been through this process, what have been your key learnings on how to protect your floors from both water and chemical stripper damage/accidents?
I'm concerned about both the stripper and the water from the rinsing process accidentally puddling on my floors.
My thoughts are to tape off the plastic barrier around the fireplace and up the sides of the walls (sorta like a pool formation) to prevent any leaking from getting under the plastic barrier.
Thanks in advance for any advice you may have from your experience!
