I have a customer that has bleached or pickled red oak floors and he wants me to refinish then but he wants to have it done the same way.
i have never done this before but i have heard it is not good for the wood.
Do i just get a "white" stain or is there some other process to do?
Thanks in advance

I have done several of these types of floors. If I remember we used a Cabot stain. and finished with a waterborne urethane. You have to use the waterborne urethane because oil modified finish will yellow over time.

Depends on the coloring they want. For uniform white you need to bleach then stain
If they want some natural showing just apply white stain with no bleach.. This is pickling.
Bona and duraseal make white stains.
Select the proper waterbase for finishing.
