Unlike regular hardwood floor stains, a stain pretreatment relies on chemical reactions to produce changes in wood instead of using pigments or dyes. The result is often a more consistent color than a regular stain. When applying a wood stain pretreatment, the effect will depend on the quantity and type of extractives in the wood, the species of the wood being treated, and the type of pretreatment that’s applied.
