10' x 12' room, floors were pretty bad. Kids had slid furniture around and
dug it up. I rented a sander saturday and cleaned it up quite a bit. some of
the deeper gouges are still there. I put 3 coats of a minwax polyurethane
Looks OK now, I'm not that fussy about it but there is a problem with dust
and "stuff sitting in the poly finish. I think it was a mistake to have an
exhast fan in the room window. The room door was open a little and I think
dust was pulled in throught the door and settled just inside the door.
can I lightly sand out some of the dust bumps without having to recoat the
floor? 120 grit in a palm sander? what will that do to the semi gloss
finish? If I spot sanded will it leave dull spots where I sand??
I also have access to a floor buffer we use at work to strip and refinish
floors here. I was thinking of using that with one of the fine finishing
pads. or would that just make a mess???
Like I said, I'm not that fussy, the floor will probably have to be redone
with a belt sander in the future to really fix it up but id I can just
smooth out the poly a bit to clean up the dust that settled in it I would be
Thanks for any help.
