It’s crystal clear that wood floor staining is a service you definitely want to be done by professionals. A little research on the topic will convince you this is not a typical DIY project, since the amateurs are easier to recognize by the poorly stained installations.

First things first, let us explain you what wood floor staining consist of. Our clients often mistake the dye application with application of finishing product. Since the both procedures resemble almost similar methodology, pigmenting the wood’s surface has its own specifics and needs professional approach. Applying a dye layer won’t work as a protective layer as the finishing product creates a barrier, although the pigmenting product also seals into the wood’s structure. In addition, after wood floor staining you definitely want to consider the sealing service for maximum results. Where comes the whole confusion from? Most of the services in London introduce the pigmenting system to the clients as darkening the shade of the wood by treating it with a cover of varnish mixed with stain. Well, the real wood floor staining is not about that at all.

The methodology allows not only darkening the initial shade of the wood, but completely transforming it. Better results you can get after sanding, because sanding will open the pores of the wood and the staining product will soak into the wood successfully. However, this is a tricky task, because the traces of the unsuccessful sanding appears the most when the floor is stained, since the clear varnish won’t highlight these imperfections so intensively. The larger the imperfections as scratches, dents and gouges, the most visible and opaque they become. Especially after the upcoming buffing stage, which will drive the dye into the wood, so our experts always look after the amount of product applied, because the extra staining layers won’t cover the problems.

Most of the customers think wood floor staining is like painting a wall and we wish it could be that simple. The process is still unpredictable for proven flooring specialists and if anything goes wrong, the staining and sanding procedure should start all over again. It is important to keep in mind that some wood species are just not meant to be stained. The soaking potential of the wood depends on its type. For example, types as maple, birch and pine have tight-grained texture and hard for the dye to adhere. There is difference also between the potential of the earlywood and latewood, so Sanding Experts London experts provide free site visit in London to inspect the flooring’s condition and suggest the best battle strategy.
