I learned something fascinating recently — vinegar is the sweet, sweet syrup of the Prince of Lies. This is what it did to my polished concrete floor. A little accident making some salad and — damn! — a whole lot of damage.
The good news is a vinegar spill can be fixed. The bad news is this cannot be accomplished by a handy homeowner with a Dremel — believe me, I considered it. Professionals must be called in.
Yeah, it’s frustrating when things go wrong and you have no one but yourself to blame but yourself. (Oh, why did I make salad that night — I would’ve been so very happy with soup!) Not to mention, this is the second bit of excitement (not the fun kind) in my condo in the last year — I also had to replace my washer/dryer.
But look how good the floor looks now! That’s thanks to a company called Toronto Marble Renewal. I was very pleased with their service and professionalism. I highly recommend them.
What I don’t recommend is having a salad a my house. If you come over, we’re having gazpacho — um wait, that has vinegar in it!I wonder how much it will cost to install hardwood floors.
