I’ve torn out old wall to wall carpeting and uncovered an oak floor with shellac finish. I don’t want to lose the color created, I suppose, from the shellac and age, so don’t want to strip it. The floor has a texture or film on it from the padding which had sat on it for many years. What can I use to clean the floor prior to a few top coats of shellac? I’ve searched old threads here on related topics, and while most seem to say poly for floors, I’ll likely go with shellac anyway, knowing I may be touching up from time to time. Sorry to be bringing back a covered topic, but I didn’t find anything on cleaning or prepping the floor prior to shellac. Any advice? Thanks.
