i have been away for a week, and the new dandy floor has a large stain on it.
At first i thought rain had got in but its dry, and when you rub it with a dry cloth it starts to come off.
The only thing i can think is i undersealed it with underseal containing waxoil and its come through the exterior ply.
any thoughts? thanks in advance for any replies. Peter :(

Its exterior ply, i think its far eastern ply Neil, 12mm, i painted the chassis and the underside with underseal containig waxoil, i think its has penitrated the wood , its dry, its just discoloured the wood, carpet will hide it, i was just worried in case it affected the glue in the plywood but it appears to be just stained, its not mould as i first thought, i may use stain cover and then paint the floor just to make it look better.
Will show the place where i bought it a photo and see what they say. Peter

if its not mold, that's a relief..
Looking at the markings, if it follows the underseal line, then the underseal will be the culprit.

Yep I tried a mould spray and it didn't make much difference, the stain is actually in the wood, if it was mould I think it would be on the surface Neil.
