Staining wooden floors allows for seamless integration with your interior design, eliminating the need for floor replacement.
At Tile Cleaning Agents, we use top-quality products like Morrells Light-Fast, Morrells Scandi, and Osmo Transparent.
Our whitewash and grey wash effects are achieved through expert application. We specialise in staining pine floorboards, a task that demands expertise due to its unique absorption characteristics. For oak floors, both red and white varieties, staining opens up a world of colour options. Engineered oak flooring requires special consideration to avoid uneven staining. Maple, with its lighter hue, can be unpredictable in absorbing stains.
The choice of stain type—water-based, oil-based, or active—determines the final hue and depth of colour, providing options from rustic to modern styles.

Our Wood Staining Process
There are various ways of changing the colour of wooden floors and certain limitations, depending on the wood and type of floorboards you have. Here are some steps that we take to achieve a successful wood floor staining process:
- Assessment: We start by assessing the condition of your wooden floor to determine the best approach for staining.
- Sanding: Sanding is a process that removes the top layer of your wooden floor, eradicating any scratches, dents, or stains that have accumulated over time. This process not only revives the look of your floor but also prepares it for refinishing or staining. Before you start sanding, there are a few preparatory steps to take, such as sweeping or vacuuming the floor to get rid of dust and loose debris.
- Removing dust: Clean the wooden surface by sweeping, mopping, or wiping it clean to remove our wood dust particles. We make sure that the surface is dry and free from dust and debris that will cause more damage when the staining process starts.
- Do a localised staining test: There are a variety of ways to stain natural wood. We test a small area to find out if the chemical agents or specific methods are appropriate and to make sure it will not cause further damage to the wood.
- Staining: The staining process involves the application of a wood stain of your choice. Once the stain is dry, we apply a protective finish, usually a primer which is followed by a further two coats of sealer. This could be a polyurethane, wax, or oil finish, depending on your preference. Allow the finish to dry completely before moving furniture back into the room.
By following these steps, we achieve a successful wood floor staining process that will leave your wooden floors looking new again.
