Blending shiny spots

Q: My hardwood floors are coated with satin polyurethane. There was some latex paint on the surface and I used “Goof Off” paint remover to remove the paint. However, the areas I removed the paint are now a bit shiny and don’t blend in with the rest of the satin finish.

Any suggestions on what to do to correct this?

A: You will have to gently but thoroughly abrade the damaged area with a fine abrasive and apply another coat of finish to the area. If you do entire boards and apply a thin coat it will be less noticeable.
