Refinish a Yellowed Floor Seattle,Wa

 

 

The original frosted cabinet color matched the new wood floor. Now years later…….

 

the floor is very worn from big dogs and commercial style cooking. Add the fact that the stinky Swedish finish has aged into a orange/yellow color.

Solution: Sand to bare wood to remove all old finish and dirt then apply new finish. However, instead of using Swedish finish, use “Bona Satin Traffic” a superior water based floor finish. Using this water based finish will mute the natural wood tones and replicate more closely a frosted stain look without staining, thus reducing a step.

Another benefit with the water based finish is the reduced environmental impact in the home and its occupants!
