Q: All my floors, some 1000 sq. ft., are painted plywood finished with three coats of polyurethane. P******* scuff remover and everything else I’ve tried that’s successful in removing scuffs also abrade the finish, leaving my floor with scores of dull patches. Is there a cleaning product or technique that will remove scuff marks on hardwood floors without removing surface gloss?
A: Any polyurethane cleaner made by floor and finish manufacturers should do the job. I have the cleaner from Poloplaz. They do indicate not to spray directly on the floor and then leave it sit because de-glossing may occur. I tested this on several stained boards and it didn’t do anything to the finish.
