Spot refinish


I have two areas where the ploy finish has worn off due to my dog and water. I believe the floor is made by bruce, its 3/4 strip and lastly I belive it natural so no stain?!

Can I sand these spots and refinish? Attached are two photos. The first picture is the damage and the second is the rest of the floor.

You can try, but it will never match and it will peel if you go over an unsanded area, trying to feather it in.

Believe me, CarpetsDoneWright is a master in the trade. When he speaks, listen.

If you want to hear it again, touch ups on polyurethane never match. They tend to stick out like a sore thumb.
To do it right, would require refinishing the whole floor. Unless, you have spare boards or an inconspicuous place, such as in a closet, where you could rob boards to replace the affected ones. New boards can be installed where you robbed the boards.

Most cost effective approach. Put a piece of plastic felt-backed table cloth over the area to protect the floor from further damage from the dog's water bowl. Then, the problem is out of sight.
