I have a contractor who is redoing the rugs in my house. He told me to clean the plywood floors between his pulling out the old rug and putting in the new rug. Like a moron, I agreed. He told me to spray them down with bleach, and cover it with KilZ paint.
Unfortunately, I hadn't read the previous post here on how to clean plywood floors....and figured after you spray something with bleach, you need to rinse it with water (plus there was a lot of carpet glue or something left over).
....so I covered my plywood floors with water, ug. About halfway through I realized it was probably not what I should be doing....but I was unfortunately on a roll.
So now I need to know how long it will take for them to fully dry....I'm unfortunately on a time crunch.... I did soak up all the excess, and it's not very humid here this time of year, but I really need it to be dry within a week....is this a pipe dream?
