I just discovered a bottle of water has leaked onto my hardwood floor. What can I do to minimize the damage while the floor is still damp? [more inside]

How can I prevent my 75-pound dog from scratching my wood floors? I keep his nails trimmed and discourage lots of running in the house, but the floors are getting scratched. Short of putting rugs anywhere, or making the dog wear booties, is there any way to minimize the scratching? Or is there an easy way to remove scratches that doesn't involve refinishing the whole floor?

I'm currently considering buying a circa 1900 house that has one major issue, both the first and second floors reek of cat urine. Does anyone have experience with erradicating this odor from an older home? [more inside]

DIYFilter: My kitchen floor still has the original tile from 70s (yuk!). I'd like to update it somehow on the cheap. So short of re-tiling, anyone have a good idea what I can do to update it?

RenovationFilter: We just bought an old library out on the great plains. Yes, library. But that's not the point. It's a wonderful, hundred-year-old brick building. The floors are beautiful, straight-grained, old-growth fir. Unfortunately.... [more inside]

HomeImprovementFilter: We are about to start the finishing work on an addition, and we're trying to decide what type of flooring to buy:Laminate, or pre-finished hardwood? We've looked at both, and I think I like pre-finished hardwood better, but I wanted some real-life commentary, rather than my speculation. Any laminate horror stories? Successes? Pre-finished camp have anything to add?

Point one: We are beginning to look for our first home.
Point two: Hardwood floors are pretty.
Point three: We have a kitty we lovingly call "Madame Barfary".
I've looked and looked, but can't seem to discover whether cat barf is harmful to hardwood floors. Anyone have experience in this area?

I just installed floating engineered floors downstairs. There is apparently a fairly substantial but narrow depression in the middle of the room, which I missed when checking the floor. How can I fix this now that the floor is laid? [more inside] [more inside]

Does anyone have any experience with having wood floors installed. I just got a quote for almost 3k to install maple strips in less than 200 sq. ft. Home Depot does installations, and although I would like to patronize a small company, I can't do it for double the price. Any ideas?
