The painters I had hired (and quickly fired) to repaint my apartment spilled some paint (little specks and spots) on the wooden floors and let it dry off without cleaning it.
The paint was "glycéro", which I think translates to alkyd paint. It wasn't acrylic paint.
Since it's dry, I can't remove it with white spirit. I can remove it with paint remover but it also removes the transparent coating on the wooden floor ("vitrification" in french, not sure how to translate it).
Any ideas of what I can try to remove the white dots on my floor without having to redo my floors afterward?
