    On Saturday I pulled up the original al carpet in a home we purchased 5 year ago. Hardwoods are underneath are covered with the backing. See photo. Its horrible! This is just 1 room! I tried denatured alcohol, the backing comes right up, however, the flloring looks like it is unfinished! And in some area turned white? Help!

    Looks like the wood has been stained and pad stuck to it. It's going to need a sanding anyhow.
    Call a hardwood finisher.
