Sanding City Service Ltd provides professional wood floor fitting services for numerous types of floor materials, flooring systems, and patterns.

Staining is a service offered by professional flooring companies that allows you to change the colour of your wooden floor. There are numerous different colours that can be applied through staining processes, chosen to match your home’s unique interior.

Most stains are designed to penetrate the wooden pores down to a certain depth. This allows them to produce rich colour, leaving the wood grain visible.

Our team is uniquely trained to work with the following main stain types

Light, Fast Stains

Alcohol-based products, available in a wide range of colours, providing excellent depth of colour. This solution is non-grain rising and resistant to colour fading. These types of stains can also be applied by hand. Drying times take around 15 – 30 minutes. This method is suitable for both oil-based and water-based sealers/topcoats. A few of the different colour examples include Brown Mahogany, Teak, Antique Pine, Black, Golden Oak, Walnut, and Jacobean.

Oil-Based Stains

Oil-based products come in a wide range of colours and offer excellent depth of colour; they are non-grain rising and resistant to most liquid spillages. Application methods can be done by an industrial buffing machine with an appropriate application pad. Colour tone regulation – transparent or intensive. Drying time: 3-6-12 hours, depending on the conditions. Suitable for oil-based sealers/topcoats (hard wax oils). Oil-based stains are also suitable for all wood types, including exotic woods. A few of the available colour examples include Graphite, Jatoba, Tabaco, Cognac, Havana, White, and Silver Grey.

Additional services offered by our team

Grey wash

Gaining a great deal of popularity, this unique solution can help bring a delightful Scandinavian style to yellow-looking floor types (such as pine or oak). This can be accomplished with variety of oil-based stains or single coat systems (e.g., Monocoat) which does not necessarily require topcoats.


Gaining popularity as well, whitewash solutions help with colour tone regulation. They can be transparent or intensive, and the grain is usually still visible. This could be accomplished with oil-based stains or water-based primers (using several base coats).

Monocoat system

Two component products – hardener + coloured oil. This method doesn’t require sealers/topcoats. Application is done using an industrial buffing machine with an appropriate application pad.
