5/4x12 Southern Yellow Pine Bullnose Stair Tread - C & Better Grade Flooring Finishing & Maintenance:
After all construction debris has been removed and all nail heads have been countersunk, it is recommended to perform a finish sanding of the floor before you apply a stain or sealer. All sanding should be done in the same direction as the flooring strips, never across.
As with every unfinished interior wood flooring, applying a quality finish to all exposed surfaces is recommended. A floor finish protects the wood from moisture absorption and UV degradation. The finish selected will affect how often the floor needs cleaning and extra maintenance. A lighter floor will hide dust better, although dirt, spills, and grit may remain more visible leading to more frequent sweeping. Darker colors of floor finishes tend to conceal scratches and visible damages and tend to be more forgiving than lighter colors. Since dark colors absorb light rather than reflect it, a dark floor color may make a room appear smaller than lighter colors. You can find all of the flooring finish products we carry at our Floor Finishes page.
General Wood Flooring Maintenance Tips:
• Use door mats at entryways. Do not use cocoa fiber or rubber-backed mats.
• Use area rugs in high-traffic lanes.
• Use floor protectors beneath furniture.
• Sweeping regularly prevents scratching from dirt and grit.
• Avoid using water on wood floors. Water causes wood to expand.
• Direct sunlight can discolor wood. Use draperies or blinds to shield the floor from direct sunlight.
