Ask The Doc A Question!


I have an unfinished wood floor approx. 14 months old that has faded in areas of exposure and is lighter in areas covered by an area rug and couch. What can I do to get the floor to be uniform?



Dear Kurt

Why is your floor unfinished ? No floor should be left unfinished, you must mean something else. And as to your fading problem, sunlight will always break down wood finishes, and even oxidize the surface of bare wood. So the best solution is to expose the entire floor to the same amount of sunlight, to even out the fading.This may take some months. Then consider getting a UV blocking film on these windows, this will slow down the fade.
