Hi All,

Got an issue here and have no idea how to make it better. We had a set of speakers that burned their footprints in to our birch hardwood. We scrubbed it with a non-abrasive cleaner called Pink Solution to no avail. Spoke to our installer and all we have so far is that we could sand it out but even then there's no guarantee. Has anyone ever dealt with this situation and what did you do about it? The house is on the market and as you can imagine, the issue depletes the value somewhat.

Thank you in advance,

Clint

You may have a photograph of the speakers' foot print made by light over time. This is common for many wood species, if not all. Over time the area will fade because of the bright light that made there effect. The yellow pigment always is more resistant to the effect of light, and even light bulbs have an effect.It would be futile to try to have powerful light over the surface to fade the areas evenly. You could always fasten the speakers to the floor so they become part of the architecture to cover the spot.
Blending in the area around the spot will turn out to be more of a problem than not doing anything. This may be addressed by the Realtor if they have had much experience.

Thanks Pete, yes we thought that doing anything might create more problems. According to the installer, it's a burn mark. Here's an image: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/OoRLsyD3Y28n_OxOjeDAdHKCI61FRyIwhHQ6hzWlpzU6gQ1V5f62aDexisuHaWnOFyEgB56oOmaVfYf3AFgejGEinKwsSjnbDlhmCoBFwzcguKcvDJ0cNCT0Bw6ngssNy-JURfoO2-amjNwP3lJ1E0gDARsxFEJHOXYSDS7dmbS5rH98eyJRF1E-KoeE0wak1uXBHTEU3Nz8eFo1WccUwcB-7lHoq1yEeUgVULX7fQKQpV49dgZT_MJK4QS9c7y605uH6h5yKs62dRt1v3ZEdp4S8DrhedGtEtNUrV4YHbzU7S50SG-1Jt2pks781Fk2OwQORt_ZMoSjDWcJDqtytMQRMaGgzIyxnpWeC7tfQJJKBfhqoHAY7ON_bAqQ4VdAKA5N_jxJGuzx_UjjACukmWWGTJw7PYGL8JSvQbgO-zk9WvjNQ7Zx10zxS7rBA4Ir33XTu_vJ6BEfb4W2MGOCuTJGkr79gWPl914sugD6K0miMfButKFoYkQ6YQADBo08dgerEB4PqFYCG-e7hypZPoNYS7m4C98Ek5qtvsdHszatNjpijgARz7JYXOuv2yPvfupDM02BXStvU2tAlgc7UqFr86QORNbCzPi41B7HkQoU5ZiwDJ9wUqC2yvfx-m5AdkLWJMf0-_NUtnjAnRRP6na-sJFnSiHaUydSO0qk96CDDgYvXDF1fdRApx1AyIs=s867-no?authuser=0

You may be able to use acrylic paint to cover a burn mark. Graining would be the best way to blend it in. An artist would be the best person.
