My 1890's era house had hardwood floors fitted a few years before i bought it. Being an older house, the existing floor wasn't perfectly flat, and so now I have gaps in some areas where the floor meets the moulding on the wall. I would like to figure out how to eliminate these gaps both for aesthetic and efficiency reasons. Would caulking be an appropriate solution or is there a better way?
Also, there are some paint splatters on the floor from where the drywall was primed - about 7 years old. I got some tinted paint off with rubbing alcohol, but this white stuff has resisted paint thinner, rubbing alcohol, denatured alcohol, Goof off painter's wipe, goo gone, and 0000/000 steel wool. Any ideas on how to defeat this stuff before I go broke buying chemicals?
