So I made a small mess of some drying poly...
Hello, first time poster here.
I recently had my hardwood floors sanded, stained and finished and I just had the guy come back to touch up some problem spots. Well, he seemed in a hurry to leave and when he removed a booger in the floor, he created a light spot in the stain. He didn't do anything about it, just put some poly over top of it and left. I discovered it as the poly was drying...maybe 10 mins after he touched it up, so I tried to wipe it up so I could re-stain, and made a mess of the poly. I know I shouldn't have tried to do it, I was just frustrated and angry.
I am finished with the floor guy, he's not giving me his time or his best effort, so I'd like to take care of this myself. How can I, 1) clean up/buff out the poly so it's smooth again, and 2) is there a way I can fill in the light spot even though there are now 2 coats of poly on it?
And finally, in other touch up spots, it looks like he just brushed on some poly over top of a finished floor. Does that need to be polished at all to avoid seeing a different finish when it dries?
Thanks in advance!
