Wood Floor Staining Explained
Floor staining is the process of application of wood stain or paint that consists of a colorant mixed with an agent or solvent. The agent can be water, alcohol, petroleum distillate, or the actual finishing agent (lacquer, varnish, polyurethane, etc.). Whether you will choose a one-floor staining product over another depends on the type of hardwood flooring. In order to make the accurate choice, we highly recommend you consulting with floor staining specialists first before rushing out to buy a floor staining product. Floor staining service is designed to intensify the natural colour of wood, covering the surface with a new colour, or adding exciting undertones.

Most floor staining products for interior use require further application of a protective finish for preserving the texture of bare wood and the floor staining pigment from wear and tear. This procedure is called floor sealing and is part of the services we offer in London along with floor staining. However, every floor staining and sealing projects start with sanding. Wood floor sanding is always recommended before floor staining because the sanding process removes all imperfections, scratches, and build-ups from the surface of the floor and opens up the pores of the wood to prepare it for floor staining. Once the surface is smooth and even, we can continue with floor staining. Without sanding, the colour pigments of the floor staining product will only highlight all imperfections on the surface.
