Wood stainer/polish

Hi,

i recently moved into a new apartment. It was carpeted throughout the lounge room. When I got home the other night I noticed that it was just square pieces, I proceeded to tear them all up and lo and behold it was polished floor boards underneath!

Although in their wisdom the painters didn’t use drop sheets! So, it is speckled ala Jackson Pollock style with specks of white paint. My landlord was over today, and is cool with me cleaning it. So, what should I use to clean off the paint, it needs to be strong enough to remove the paint, although I don’t want to damage the floor boards…

EDIT

The paint comes off with hot soapy water and cleaning products…
