I have a client we are about do a hardwood clean, recoat water poly using the Vibe. But she has this gray in only one area and said we have to get it right. Told him to clean and scrub where I circled for test. Any other suggestions?

is that backing from a rug or rug pad that is stuck on there or is that wear? if its not some kind of gunk on the wood then I think it needs to be sanded to be done correctly

That looks like wear to me. The old coating is worn through and the bare wood is exposed and it has become discolored/dirty. The ONLY thing that will restore that area is a sanding to expose new wood. Then you can recoat. A "clean" and recoat will not work here because there is no way to get good results without sanding on a floor that has that level of wear/damage.

Yes, that simply might need sanding and nothing else. Hardwoods are kind of that helping. If that was any other thing, we might have to get that replaced.

Water damage on wood. How do you remove that from wood without sanding?
Absolutely agree on water damage. I had seen a Fido feed station with a similar oucome. For a such a small areas I carry battery portable sander. Grit 100, 150, 200 and quick recoat always makes a huge difference. Customer moves feed station a few feet away and history repeats itself .
Quick fix, quick money, twice a year. Right dilution of hydrogen peroxide needed from time to time.

That makes more sense. Light sanding, priming & sealing. Over the years i had a lot of people asking me to resolve same issues without sanding. You can achieve some results but a proper job would be light sanding and varnishing. The varnish i use lasts for up to 10 years even on commercial floors. Wood maintenance is a major issue for most people
