Hardwood Floor Stains
Hardwood floor stains are liquids made of pigments that are meant to fill in and blend into the wood’s grains and pores. There are two main types of hardwood stain: the water-based type, and the oil-based type. Every stain consists of a pigment and a carrier, plus binding elements.
