Wood Floor Staining Explained
Wood floor staining is the process of application of wood stain or paint that consists of a colourant 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 an accurate choice, we highly recommend you consult with specialists first before rushing out to buy a product. This service is designed to intensify the natural colour of wood, covering the surface with a new colour, or adding exciting undertones. With this process, you can unleash your creativity and imagination and get a totally new and exciting look for your favourite wood floor or simply deepen the natural undertones of the wood species. No matter what is your desire, our team will help you achieve even the boldest interior design dreams.
Most products for interior use require further application of a protective finish for preserving the texture of bare wood and the pigment from wear and tear. This procedure is called sealing and is part of the services we offer in London along with wood floor staining. However, every project starts with sanding. Wood floor sanding is always recommended before this process because it 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 staining. Once the surface is smooth and even, we can continue. Without sanding, the colour pigments of the product will only highlight all imperfections on the surface.
Why Choose Us for Your Project?
Wood floor staining can be easy or challenging depending on wood species, the type of product, ambient conditions, previous treatments, etc. Our experts make everything easy by working only with high-quality, natural, and long-lasting products and by providing sanding service for preparing the floor’s surface for an even application. Fresh lumber accepts stains poorly, while aged wood absorbs stains well. The absorbing potential of wood depends also on wood species. After a free initial inspection in London prior to the project, we will be able to inform you of the specific needs and requirements of your wooden floor, if any, and recommend the most effective methods and products.
Preparation of the floor before the service guarantees better results. Floor sanding is the way we create a perfect surface so stains can penetrate properly and show up the right colour. Sanded floors are important for an even and uniform stain application. Once the stain is applied and dry, depending on the type of wood, the protective finishing layer can be applied. A coat of polyurethane, wax sealants, or lacquer will ensure the long-lasting power of the product.
After staining, wood floors should be cleaned with attention to detail and with the proper maintenance routine. We provide free information to our clients and also a long list of maintenance services in London, including polishing, re-oiling, and refinishing. Contact us on 020 70360625.
