Hardwood floor polyurethane touch up

Posted by JohnSullivan (My Page) on

I used a brush to apply a thin layer of polyurethane over the entire floor, and then I used Lambskin to apply a layer of polyurethane to some recently stained floors. 95% of the floor looks great, but there are a few places where the polyurethane soaked in more than others due to the cracks in the old wood and a spot that had some problems and required more sanding between coats.

I am hoping to simply apply polyurethane in a few spots rather than put another layer on the entire floor. Can I just spot touch up the polyurethane, or is doing that going to make it look abnormal or not blend correctly.

Any experience with doing this?

Thanks in advance.

RE: Hardwood floor polyurethane touch up

You would be walking a fine line if you did just did a few spots. Typically a stained floor get a minimum of 2 coats of poly. Some opt for a third but two is usually enough.

I suggest you first try spot finish. And you might be ok. But leave yourself the option to coat the entire floor.
