Use Physical Barriers to Protect Your Hardwood Flooring from the SunRefinish, Repair, and Recover Your Well-Loved Hardwood Floors

Hardwood flooring is the signature look of your home. In order to keep it looking its best, it is important to care and maintain your flooring which includes refinishing. Direct sunlight on any object will cause discoloration and fading. Inspect your hardwood floors by lifting up an area rug to check for discoloration. Since we can’t control the sun, it’s time to control our actions.

Ways to Recover from Sun Damage to Hardwood Floors

Physical Barriers

There are a variety of options to control the amount of sunlight entering your home including blinds, outdoor landscaping, and tinted windows. Get creative with your room arrangements and accents to showcase and protect what you value most. Even rotating furniture throughout your home can assist in balancing light and exposure.

Chemical Treatments

Science and technology are constantly improving the quality of products we use throughout our homes. Some stains come with UV-resistance properties to curb fading. Every floor is different, and our GREENGUARD Certified stain options will be specifically selected for safe and effective use in your home or business.

Refinish Flooring

Use this as an opportunity to update the aesthetics of your home with a new stain to reflect your preference.
