Question

Refinish Hardwood Floors... What's withe the spots?!? (pics attached)


I've begun refinishing my red oak hardwood floors. After doing the complete sanding...etc, I've put 1 coat of tinted DuraSeal Polyurethane on. In certain areas, especially around the entry, there are spots that will not take the poly... what gives? Its like oil and water... just doesn't make sense.
The floors are about 30 years old...

Would love you input.

Oil, water, sweat, something from the sander, something spilled a long time ago, or all the above. Best to wipe a floor down with paint thinner then alcohol before finishing, dry thoroughly.
