Remove Drywall dust from hardwood floor cracks and grain
James

My contractor did not sweep up and vacuum the drywall dust well before moping the new pre-finished hardwood floors. Now the dust is like concrete and in every pour of the wood. What can I do to break down and remove the dust to get my need floors back to 98%. I don't think they will ever be perfect again.

Go to the local craft store and purchase a small container of Mold Builder it is a Liquid Latex Rubber you will apply it by brush it may take two or three coats than when dry say about 2 days pull if off every thing that is not part of the wood will come off with the rubber. DO A SMALL TSET FIRST.
