Re: Pine Floor Discoloration
I would recommend leaving it alone!
- With the floor already finished, stains will not penetrate well, leaving behind a mottled result.
- Once some areas have been stained and others not, when you do finally have the floors refinished it will be extremely difficult, if not impossible to remove said stain without significant erosion of the woods surface.
- The unprotected areas will continue to age and fade, while areas under furniture will not. Once again leaving behind color differentiations.
- Stained areas will fade differently and at a different rate than unstained areas, exaserbating the problem.
If you can't afford to refinish the floors now, leave them be until you can. You'll be glad you did.
