In reply to Refinishing old harwood floors by Susan on July 17th, 2000 08:51 PM [Go to top of thread]


Since you're sanding the floor to refinish it, why are you cleaning it with TSP? The 'acrylic-like' look is probably just more poly. As you're already doing, keep the paper 'new' and keep vacuming. Once you're down to the wood, only take off about 1/8" or so. That should give you enough flooring to stain and re-poly.

The TSP may be loosening up the poly and reacting w/it when it's heated under the sander too. I'd stop using the TSP.

My best to ya and hope this helps.
