Step By Step Process For Timber Floor Staining In Brisbane
Before initiating the staining process, we have an “action plan” ready to avoid any interruptions. The process is executed step by step carefully because each step is crucial in giving the final look.
STEP 1: PREPARING FOR STAINING
The first and foremost process is “sanding”. An uneven floor cannot be stained as there will be areas of darker and lighter colors and the final finish will not be pleasant. The area is prepared by removing all the furniture and covering the doors with plastic sheets to avoid the spread of dust. The area is the n inspected in detail and if any rough surface comes under observation, it is sanded using sandpaper. The sanding is done exquisitely as the finest the sanding is done, splendid the staining will be.
STEP 2: CLEANING OF THE PREMISES
After sanding is done, the next step is cleaning the premises using a special vacuum cleaner built for this purpose only. The common household vacuum cleaner is avoided as it leaves stretch marks on the timber. Cleaning is also done with the use of cloth dipped in spirit to reach every corner.
STEP 3: STAINING
Application of stain is not done directly; rather a test procedure is done on a small piece of the timber which is of the same type as that is laid on the floor. It is then left to dry in the same room. Now, if you desire to have water popping, it is done at this stage. Before applying the stain, water is sprinkled over the sanded area and let dry for a day or so. It is important to keep proper ventilation to avoid trapping vapors in the room. Stain is then applied moving from one corner of the room and reaching towards the exit. It is important to wipe away any excess stain through a rag continuously before it dries out to provide an even and smooth texture. As it is a one-time procedure, we move with a proper strategy to avoid intrusion. The floor is then left to dry for up to 72 hours depending upon the specifications of the stain applied.
