The stains on any other floor surface rather than the wood can easily be removed using simple methods like scrubbing. The removal of the stains on the wooden surface can be a tough task and that's why the blending of the stain is much better than the stain removal.
7 Easy Steps To Blend Stains On Hardwood Floors
The various steps required in blending the stains on the hardwood floors are mentioned below:
- Sanding: Start with sanding the stain affected area on the floor with the help of the 80-grit sandpaper. Avoid sanding too much that it will affect the wood surface. Just sand the stained surface only.
- Vacuuming: Deep vacuum is required to eliminate sanding residue and follow up by wiping it using a wet rag.
- Re-Sanding: Re-sand the stain affected area using 180 grit sandpaper gently to blend the stain with the floor. Once done vacuum the area and let it dry.
- Sanding Again: The floor needs to be again sanded with the help of the 240-grit sandpaper and vacuum and dry it again.
- Stain Color: At last the application of the original stain color is required to apply over the stain with the help of the rag cloth. Once done wipe off the stain from the floor doing this will blend the stain with the color of the rest of the floor.
- Dry: Let it dry completely.
