Things to Consider


  • Able to maintain clear grain patterns in the timber.

  • Able to remove a large percentage of dark tannins- as opposed to trying to cover it up with lime.

  • A combination of bleaching, stain, lime has a higher chance of colour matching timber to another piece of timber of choice.

  • Other bleach chemicals produce harmful gas. However, we use a specially formulated bleaching system that only release oxygen and no harmful VOC’s.


  • Requires a lot more special care and time to bleach the timber.

  • Only flooring and certain aspects of stairs/ furniture can be bleached. Not all surfaces can accept the bleaching method.

  • The caustic effects can affect certain types of paint that are in contact with the flooring; such as skirting/ door jam paints.

Note for Clients

Please note that the final results does depend greatly on the original condition of the timber that will be bleached. Certain imperfections can be removed through the bleaching process- but expectations should be set where the final results can show signs of imperfection.
After bleaching, we can additionally apply a lime wash, or stain to get a colour/ tone that you will be satisfied by. We can apply an onsite sample test to confirm the right colour combination.
