I just moved into a new house. I have never had wooden floors until now. Today, we moved a box and saw a strange waxy looking white gunk on the floor after moving a box. Unknowingly, I scraped it off with my fingernails. Now, I am pretty sure I scraped off the top layer of my wood floors finish.
I read about wood floor finishes. Some say I should try to match the floor's finish, but I don't know what it is. Others have said polyurathane can just be brushed on.
The wood and stain appear to be fine, but this waxy stuff on top I destroyed. Its about a 36sq in area that I destroyed.
What can I do to fix this? Do I need a professional?
