I'm pulling up the tile in my 1940's house to get to the hardwood floors beneath. The floors are in pretty bad shape with possible water damage, light/dark spots, paint spatters, stick-on tile adhesive, painted surfaces, etc. Here are some pictures:
In the future (5 years), I plan to have the floor professionally refinished after I complete my additions. In the near-term, I would like to replace the damaged boards, patch any holes, strip and polyurethane the floor myself. Not looking for perfection, just need them to look acceptable.
Any recommendations for some strong chemical stripper that would get the floor back to bare wood? I can't hand-scrub all 1000 square feet and I don't need to worry about preserving the surface finish, so I'd like to use the most powerful stuff I can get.
