Sticky Hardwood Floor Stain after 5 days

16412 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  floortrends
I put stain on my hardwood floors, but did not wipe them off as instructed because I liked the color. It's 5 days later and the floors are still sticky. Any suggestions on how to get them dry so I can start applying the polyurethane? Also, the bottle of poly states to apply 2-3 coats and once the final coat is on, not to put anything heavy on the floors for 14-21 days. Is this true? I was hoping to move in a week after the poly coats were applied.

As you have already found out, not following instructions and guidelines leads to an unsatisfactory result.

That stuff is on the can for a reason
try putting a fan on your stain but im thinking it needs a good wiping
