Q: I had worms in my old hardwood flooring. They were treated with some kind of insect killer solution, and after 2 weeks the floor became sticky. Should I sand it down and stain it or is there an easy solution to my sticky floor problem?

And I don’t think I would be handling it, walking on it, letting children or pets near it until this is resolved. It might be as simple as wiping it down with a wet cloth but check first and don’t be applying any other type of chemical until you know what the outcome might be.
