Blue Pine wood floor


Hi,

I have a Blue Pine wood floor I put in. The lumber was Kiln Dried and acclimatized to our home for 3 weeks before install.

We finished the floor.

Now, there are sticky spots which capture dirt, felt, and pet hair.
Thinking these we where sap was coming from the wood, I cleaned them and aired them out, thinking to dry the wood more. Before I could finish again, the surface is sticky again.

Any ideas?

thanks
Joel

What are you finishing it with?
Where on the planet are you?
Adding your location your profile would be a big help.
Just go to quick links to edit.
Been working on houses for over 40 years and never heard of blue pine, had to look it up to even see what your talking about.

Some pine contains pitch pockets---hardened sap---and will bleed sap for years---best to replace the offensive boards---

Continually wiping with mineral spirits, as the pitch emerges ,is the only way to remove the sticky sap.
