Poly Finish

My contractor placed his 'last' coat of poly on my floor yesterday. I think he did a sloppy job because I see little specs and clumps all over the floor. It's not horrible and you can only see the specs/clumps when you bend over and look closely. Is this normal or should he have done a better job?

I denied paying him his final payment the morning of his final day as he requested (which the contract clearly states after the job is completed) and he got pissed off and was yelling at me over the phone. Since he started on the floor right after the conversation, I suspect the anger caused him to do a sloppy job.

I haven't given him his final payment so I'm expecting him to fix it.

My question is, what is the best way to fix this so I can be sure he does it properly?

Poly Finish

Sounds like he didn't properly clean up the floor before the final coat. It probably has dust in it from sanding the previous coat.
