How to fix this HW floor without recoat the entire unit/room?
Is it possible to fix the two lines in the middle room that is more dull than the rest of the floor. (Golden oak stain, semi gloss finish). It's worse in person but this is the best I can do in the camera. In the picture, it doesn't look bad, but the lines are actually long.
The floor guy came to fix the inconsistency. He gently sanded it and put finish on the top. I came back to check after a week or so, it's worse but he said it will be better after I walk on it.
I asked if he can redo just the dining room and he said if I want to redo, it has to be the entire unit but I don't have the luxury to move my furniture in and out into the bedroom anymore. He will charge $400 for 700 sq.ft.
The room is about 12x17 and it's connecting to foyer without door.
