Is there anything a layperson can do for a wood floor which has lost some areas of protected polyurethane?

Asked by Annette

some small areas are now exposed wood with no finish. We are not ready to have floors done professionally.

I have wood floors. A painter I know showed me a process once I have used before. We mix the stain with the sealer.

  • First, we stained lightly, pure stain, wiped it out..then...
  • Coated it with the mix....
  • Once it dried....we used 360 sandpaper to sand it down....
  • Repeated process with lambs wool applicator....looks great!
