Bill; I found this really thorough discussion of the topic... |

Bill; let the buyer beware, eh? |
That's a lot of work to go to and then find out that there was indeed a problem.
Nothing sticks to silicone...or at least not for very long (well maybe doggy doo-doo, but I'll let someone else do the research )

|JudgeMike||Thanks for all your input. Guess I will use some stain to match as best as I can then Poly after that. Again, thanks for the ideas! Mike|

|TwoSkies57||Dan,, what about the two products I linked above? They pretty much say to just wipe on?|

|DaninVan||Mike; whatever you use you first need to lift any residual waxes (remember that a lot of wax type products also contain Silicone!) Talk to a janitorial supply house for professional floor cleaners. Don't even contemplate putting something else down before the existing is chemically clean; you will end up sanding!|

I haven't used this product, but it claims you can go over the existing finish. Might have to do a light sanding to get it to hold. |

Hey Judge... |
Home Depot carries a product that is a quick fix for refinishing floors. I looked into it not to long ago. Renewit, restoreit...something like that (I can't for the life of me recall the exact name)..Everything I read pretty much said its a pretty decent product. Not a long term fix, but great for quick new look. I plan on using it on my hardwood floors..
This isn't the product I was thinking of, but very similar if not the same stuff in a different bottle..
Here we go.. this is what I was thinking of

I've used Minnwax from Home Depot that is stain and poly together to make old door slabs look a lot better . They do turn out pretty decent but they were a lighter color and I went slightly darker. You could put a coat of floor poly on over it if you wanted.

Thanks John, |
I have sanded, stained and sealed other properties. (should say I have HAD it done) and it looked beautiful when done. This time, for now, I just need a quick fix. Can you possibly give me the brand name of a stain and sealer you would recommend? Is there one product that has both stain and sealer combined for floors? I would most likely be buying at Menards, but other stores available too. Thanks again for your time and help. I never did have much talent in the finishing dept., unless it just needed painting or a good cleaning. :-) mike
