Hardwood Floor Planks Around Toilet Turning Black

Previous Next
 
We have hardwood flooring on the main floor. There are a couple of planks around the toilet that are becoming black. What can be done about it? How do we exchange these planks, if we have to, without having to exchange the whole floor?
Previous Next
 
Answer:
The black discoloration is likely due to the moisture from the toilet. You could exchange the planks from around the toilet, if you have any left over from the original installation, but you will still be faced with the same issue in the future. If you do not have any planks left over from the original installation, you will need to exchange the flooring. Hardwood flooring is not typically instaled in bathrooms (half baths and full baths) for precisely this reason. Cork is a nice alternative in half bath applications. Vinyl or ceramic are the other alternatives you may want to investigate at your local REPUTABLE flooring store.
