Can this product be used to protect wood flooring around a toilet? I am installing engineered bamboo (click-lock) flooring in a powder room and my 7 year old isn't always careful with his aim.

Answer: 
I've had this on my kitchen floor for a couple of years, and it survives occasional water spills just fine. But for any surface that's regularly wet/damp, I would still use oil-based poly (as much as I like this product, I bought oil-based poly for my enclosed porch, and I think that was the right decision - it's just tougher against water).

You need good ventilation for large areas like floors but no air blowing on floor. This stuff dries really fast. The odor lasts a couple hours.

Answer: 
Linda, Parks Polyurethane has a mild odor that will dissipate while the product is curing. With proper ventilation, once fully cured (about 48 hours) the smell will no longer be present.

Should I sand between coats? I would like to get the floor a bit smoother. Or just use a hand-held buffer? Would something like this do the trick? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Ryobi-6-in-Buffer-RB61/204268214

Officially: very light sanding, careful cleaning of dust (no chemicals!), apply another thin coat. But I just waited till it was dry to the touch - skipped the sanding. Of course, I chose a satin varnish in part because it would look a bit more rustic. Probably the right person could detect dust motes in my surfaces. I don't see anything bothersome, though.

Of course, I chose a satin varnish in part because it would look a bit more rustic. Probably the right person could detect dust motes in my surfaces. I don't see anything bothersome, though. This is much less sticky/dust-trapping than oil-based poly, which is practically glue. If you are looking for a pristine finish, I would obey the directions and sand. But if you just want it to look reasonably smooth, I'm sure buffing would be plenty - I'm not sure you'd even need to do that. Read Less

Answer: 
Only need to sand after the first coat on bare wood. No sanding required between subsequent coats as long as you apply them within, I think it is, 12 hours. That time frame worked for me anyway.

Answer: 
When applying multiple coats of Parks Water-Based Polyurethane, allow product to dry a minimum of 1-2 hours between coats. Sanding between coats is not required for adhesion as long as the time between coats is less than 6 hours. However, screening or sanding between coats usually produces a smoother, better looking finish. A minimum of 3 coats is recommended. Do not apply more than 2 coats the same day. Read More

Answer: 
Probably something to do with curing time; even if they seem dry, the more coats you apply, the more they're SECRETLY not hardened yet. But I think I applied 4-5 (very thin) coats in a single day :). I just waited until the floor was dry to the touch, and then started the next one. I did give it a couple of days to cure after the last coat, though.

Answer: 
Rust-Oleum Pro Finisher Polyurethane for Floors requires a minimum of 3 coats at a rate of 600-700 square feet per gallon. No more than 2 coats should be applied in the same day to ensure proper drying and curing of the finish. You may apply a 3rd coat after 10-12 hours.

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy and durable. I found this product very easy to use and is holding up well. I used it on my red oak steps. There are negative review and positive reviews. I think it depends on your prep and type of stain as to if you have success or not. I first sanded my steps and applied a WATER base stain. I think some people are using it over oil stain. Even though it states you can use over oil base stain, I wouldn't. Oil and water do not mix. It will just peel off. I applied one coat of the poly after the stain dried and let it dry over night. Then I lightly sanded and applied 4 more coats the next day WITHOUT sanding in between coats. If you let it dry more than 6 hours in between coats you will need to re-sand. I applied very thin coats. You could hardly see the milky white (it drys clear). It drys super fast, in fact we walked on it the next day (with out shoes) with no problem. I did a coat every hour. I found it easier to apply with a paint pad and brushed it on in the corners. There was very little odor and I used it when the windows were closed with no problem. It has been holding up well on the steps. I think the secret to use this product is to use very thin coats and do not use over oil based stain. I would defiantly use this product again. The only thing that I didn't like is that it only comes in gallon size. I still have half of it left over. May 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad product We will never buy this product again or recommend it to anyone. My husband followed all the directions and we waited a full 7 days for it to cure. Our floors will have to be redone again. There are scuff marks and scratches all over the floor. We don't wear shoes in the house and have felt furniture movers under every single piece of furniture. Very disappiinted! We'd give it "0" stars if we were allowed. April 2, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Scratches ridiculously easy After sanding down my entire house I applied 3 coats of this product. It has not even been 3 months and there scratches and worn down patches everywhere. If it was not for the sale of my house currently I would be demanding my money back and still am extremely dissatisfied with this product!! December 24, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing Product About 18 months ago I did 4 projects in my little bungalow with this product. The oak floor in the living room was badly discolored even after sanding so I was forced to stain it dark. I used Minwax Jacobean oil base stain and waited about 5 days before applying the Pro Polyurethane. Over the course of 2 days I put down 7 coats. I know that lots of coats but it was quick and easy to apply. There was no need to sand after the first coat with the oil base stain. The product is very forgiving. Just be sure to keep a wet edge. I edged with a brush and used a pad applicator. Sanded and applied Pro in the upstairs bedroom to a mixed hardwood floor. No stain so it was necessary to sand after first coat. Put down 7 coats again. The oak stair treads going upstairs had been finished with oil base urethane several years before (by a previous owner). The finish was worn and paint splattered. I cleaned up the paint, lightly hand sanded the surfaces, installed one new tread, applied an oil based stain I mixed using a couple different Minwax colors to match the existing amber look on the new tread and the worn spots on the others. Seven coats again. I made the trim and stair rail parts for the upstairs bedroom from douglas fir and used knotty pine doors. Again I used my amber color oil stain and applied 4 coats of pro about 5 days later. I achieved great results on all of these projects. After 18 months there are no signs of wear or scratching in the heavy traffic areas. The only reason I don't give this product a 5 is because I have noticed some scuffing. They look like something I could probably rub out but I don't know. My dog, 9 lbs, chases her toy across the living room hardwood floor sliding around. No scratches. I used satin so maybe scratches that other reviewers complain about are with a glossier finish, don't know. I'm happy with my results after 18 months of use. January 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by super product!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! covered well and dried fast i will use this product again December 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great non yellowing poly for economical price i really like ease of use..non yellowing and inexpensive August 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Water-based polyurethane better than oil based. Almost no odor. Dries super fast and looks beautiful! . Had never refinished hardwood floors before. Followed recommendation to use oil based poly...BIG mistake!! The fumes were horrendous and made us sick. Even after the floor had dried, the smell was horrible. We applied the water based over the dried oil based. It dried within an hour and locked in the stench of the oil based application. Was able to apply 5 coats of water based within 5 hours because it dries so quickly. And I love the look of my floors now...they look warm and soft and natural rather than having the orange glow that was left when the oil based finally dried. I will never use oil based poly again when refinishing my remaining hardwood floors. Loved this product!!! September 2, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent... So far. Excellent spreadability. Very easy to feather. Dried quickly. No odors. Color dries clearer than oil based polyurethane, which gives a yellowish hue. Upon application, this product is 1,000% better than the oil based products. I have read the other reviews, and it seems like durability is the major downside to most people. We'll see. I applied 3 coats in one afternoon. I will give it proper curing time, move in and usage time. Then I will update. November 29, 2014
