WATER POPPING: Can slightly darken a floor, but Pro Stains are designed to achieve one coat color. If you water pop you may stain immediately as Pro Stain is water based.
IMPORTANT: Record moisture meter readings in several places before staining the floor. These readings will provide a benchmark at later stages to determine when the floor is dry enough to apply another coat.
MIXING STAIN: Mix stain thoroughly before using.
Application Tips: If conditions are dry and warm, restrict the amount of air flow, increase the application rate, and block direct sunlight by closing shades or blinds.
