It's almost not worth it and just starting fresh with changing the copy all to one style.
After a couple of decades of working with Word files, mostly in PageMaker but also in InDesign, I print out a hard copy for reference and save the file as plain text. Then I apply my good styles in the layout program.

Word files were often a source of corruption in PageMaker files; I do not know if ID shares that weakness, but I take no chances!
