How to get rid of this stain on my hardwood floor ?

Stain is the result of water slowly accumulating from a poorly sealed silicone in the window chassis... Any miracle product ?

Thanks !

Welcome to the forums!

You'll have to sand and refinish the floor, there's no miracle cure It's not uncommon for water stains not to sand out so you may have to bleach the wood once all the finish is removed. Worse case scenario would be to replace the affected boards. Sometimes a darker stain is effective for disguising the stains.

I don't know a lot about bleaching stains out of wood I think you use an oxalic bleach. If one of the other members doesn't chime in with more info I'm sure you could google it for more info. It only works on raw wood - you have to remove the finish first.
