There’s nothing more exciting than moving into, or renovating your new home. Countless hours are spent scrolling through instagram searching for the perfect floors to lay, the different shades of paint to use, and most importantly the colour of stain you want to use on your timber staircase (of course!). However, the result you expected may not be exactly what you were hoping for.

Today we are going to highlight some of the main reasons why you need to hire a professional stair polisher when it comes to staining your stairs.

Timber Preparation:
Professional stair polishers spend most of their time carefully preparing the timber to create the perfect canvas. Professional stair polishers use commercial sanding equipment fitted with dust extraction when sanding your newly installed timber stairs. This will give you and your family peace of mind knowing that you aren’t breathing in dust particles during the sanding process.

Timber Filler:
When it comes to filling nail holes and big knots, stair polishers spend the extra time to ensure that all of the imperfections are filled and blended. Stair stainers know the exact colour filler to use on all the different types of timber making it virtually impossible to notice any defect was ever there.

Timber Staining:
Now the staining process. Professional stair polishers sand & stain staircases every day of the week. They have the most experience when it comes to using oil based and water based stains. Stair stainers know how to spread the product evenly, how many coats are required, what non slip coating should be added and what type of top coat is most effective. 

One of the most important steps to ensuring the perfect looking staircase is maintenance. Stair polishers will advise you on the best products to use to maintain that fresh, brand new look. They will advise you on what abrasives are the safest to use, what cleaning agent won’t discolour the timber and how often you should hire a professional to give the stairs a maintenance coat.

When the time comes to decide on what trade to hire to sand and stain your stairs, hire a professional. Southern Stain offers boutique stair polishing and guarantees durability, longevity and most importantly the perfect look to any timber staircase.
