Can I apply polyurethane to partial of my rooms?


Those rooms are much needed for polyurethane. But I don't want to move furniture, they are too heavy, I only want to apply on the area I can reach. Especially, there is 5'by5' T-shape office desktop, a 8' by 11' carpet is under the desk, there will be quite a portion of that room cannot be reached for polyurethane.

Should I apply polyurethane to those areas which are reachable? But is kinda difficult to imagine how to turn out (especially if moving around furniture in the future)

Any suggestions?

You can just repoly in part but it will show, maybe not so much now but if anything is moved it will stand out like a sore thumb!

It would be better to get some help moving the furniture, sand and repoly the entire floor.

I understand it will be much better to apply the entire room, but currently, I don't really like to do it, don't want to hire someone to help move around furniture.

My question is more about picking a choice between "apply it to partial of room" and "do not anything at all if not applying to entire room".

Thanks.

Don't forget you need to at least scuff sand the existing poly before applying fresh poly.
There are some wax type products that may do a good job for you. They would need to be stripped off before you could sand and apply poly.

For twenty bucks at harbor freight you can get two furniture dollies rated up to 1,000 lbs. life one end of a dresser, slide dolly under, lift other end and other dolly goes under.....and wheel it around with one hand. Buy a few sets and leave the stuff on tihem. Just did exactly that yesterday and moved a couple of big dressers and here file cabinets, lined out in the hall. Ron

Most people cannot get a partial application like this to blend. I would do nothing or do the whole floor.
