You mean like this? Yea...I did it...got distracted when I was turning on my machine. Good thing this was the area that needed to be washed.I have a small 15" SC on the end of a 5' wand. I just make sure I lift it off the wood surface before starting it and then set it down so it doesn't leave a start up ring. Kind of a pain blending the edges in with a wand, but is a huge time saver for a large floor surface.
