My roof leaked while we were on vacation and now I have a stain from a water spot on my bamboo floor. How do I repair this?

RE: water spot in my bamboo floor
This really depends on how deep the damage goes. I would first try sanding the area to see how far you have to go to get bamboo that is not water stained. You will then need to replace the finish layer. If the bamboo is stained it will be much harder to get the stain to match, but is the fnish is a clear urethane, or something similar, this should be pretty easy. Probably won't look perfect, but close enough. If all else fails, replace the boards.

RE: water spot in my bamboo floor
Thanks hardwood pro. I was abl to sand off the finsih layer, which was clear, thankfully.  I only had to sand off a very thin layer of the bamboo and then I used some polyurethane to fill the area.  It looks pretty good.  If I get it in just the right light, I can see the difference slightly, but it's a lot better now. 

 

Thanks!!!
