I purchased a home several years ago, and finally have the time to restore the porch flooring. I am told it is mahogany wood, although I am certain it can't be top notch quality. My problem is that (typical of the rest of the house) it was not installed properly. My assumption is that they used a nail gun to install. Whatever nails they used, they have caused black stains on the wood. Every single nail.
I have used Restore-A-Deck (had on hand), and it did nothing for the stains. In fact they stand out even more now because the rest of the wood is now brighter.
So, what product can I use to remove those stains? My plan is to use Penofin as the finish. I have an Ipe deck with Penofin and I'm happy with it (thanks for all your help here on this forum!). I'm hoping the Penofin will look just as nice on the mahogany, although I am open to suggestions if you have any.
Thanks for all your help.
