Changing the colour of your wooden floor doesn't have to be expensive, time consuming or overly complicated.
Floor staining is the process of applying wood stain, which consist of colorant mixed with agent or solvent. The agent can be water, alcohol, petroleum distillate, or the actual finishing agent (lacquer, varnish, polyurethane for glossy finish, etc.), depending on type of flooring and what condition it is in. Floor staining service is created to add color to wooden surface while leaving the substrate mostly visible. Which means, that floor staining won't delete wood's natural beauty, but only present it in new and exciting way. It will only highlight benefits of having vintage floors, especially with London's tradition in that kind of flooring.
Most wood stains for interior uses require further application of varnish or finish for protection and gloss and here is where job have to be professionally done. This procedure is called floor sealing and is part of our services in London portfolio, but let's go back on the staining and what you have to know about it.
Wood floor staining can be easy or difficult, depending on type of flooring, type of stain, ambient conditions, previous manipulations, etc. Our experts make everything easy by using only high quality, natural and long lasting stains and by providing floor sanding service to prepare surface for even application. Fresh lumber accepts stain poorly, while older wood absorbs stains well. Absorbing potential of wood depends also on species of wood.
