Q imported from our old site, Face Lift Floors: I put on three coats of polyurethane on my newly sanded and stained floor and was wondering if I need to wax it.

A: I would never recommend applying wax or any other foreign finish over polyurethane. If you do that, it will make keeping the floors clean more difficult, and will present possibly impossible odds of ever buffing and recoating the floors when they start to wear.
