The Ins & Outs of Staining and Sealing Hardwood Floors

Simmons Floor Covering is here to give you some tips on how to make your old floor look brand new again with staining and sealing!
The beauty of your hardwood floors needs to shine through. But your natural wood flooring looks dull, drab and kind of dirty. Even with regular DIY maintenance and cleaning, your floors may need something more.
Before you consider replacing or covering old, worn, stained or lackluster hardwoods, take a look at the professional-level services that can save your floors. Not only can these expertly offered options change the look and feel of your floors, but they can also save you time and money.
Instead of spending your entire weekend or every evening buffing and polishing or investing in a completely new install, these processes provide plenty of opportunities to keep your existing floors and relax as someone else does the work for you.

Staining and Sealing

After sanding your floors you're left with a pristine, smooth surface. But the rich color that you're used to and the high shine that adore are all but gone. What can you do to remedy the situation and get the décor back that you're looking for? A professional staining and sealing process can completely transform your old or sanded floors.
Start by choosing a stain that matches the room's décor or the overall design scheme of your home. Keep in mind, you may decide to paint walls, change out wallpaper or switch up the room's aesthetics later on. A neutral stain may last longer and serve you better if you aren't sure about keeping the décor.
Again, like sanding, staining is a job that's best left to the professionals. An uneven coating can create dark and light patches or a streaky. This means that you may have to re-sand the floor, wasting even more of your time and your money.
After staining the floor, sealing it can add shine and protect it from everyday wear and tear. This doesn't mean that your floor won't scratch again. A clear polyurethane coating will help your floor to resist some stains, moisture and light wear. But it's still possible to get deep scratches with this type of coating.
