Q: Our maple floors have been sanded to the bare wood (light). The stain was applied by a professional. There are dark streak marks, hand prints, spots and splotches over sections of the floor. Continue to stain or sand again and put clear varnish?
A: Blotches on maple with staining you should expect. It is the nature of the wood. Hand prints shouldn’t be there though. Can’t you just deal with that spot?
