Protect Your Interior Floors and Walls from the “Picture Frame” Effect

Lignins are a class of complex organic polymers that are important in forming the cell walls of wood.  While lignins help make wood an ideal building material because of their part in creating the fibrous nature of wood, lignins are also what makes wood vulnerable to fading and graying when exposed to sun over time.  If wood floors and interior walls are left unprotected from sun exposure over time, a “picture frame” effect may take place. This effect occurs when the wood exposed to sunlight darkens more than the wood that is covered. Through natural processes over time, the ultraviolet light in sunlight darkens the lignin component of wood. The “picture frame effect” can be  prevented by  putting an additive into the first coat of some interior wood finishes. UV boost combines with the lignin in the wood and then delays the breakdown of the lignan fibers, keeping the wood from darkening over time.  UV boost can be added to the first coat on bare wood of any Perma-Chink Systems wood finish.

Checkout this recent testimonial from one of our customers:

“If I could give this product 10 stars I would. We were amazed with the result. Having purchased a home built in 1963 we removed the carpeting and discovered old asbestos tiles beneath. When we pulled them up we were met with an awful stench and the black mastic adhesive that was used to lay the tiles 52 years ago. I read about Bean-e-doo and we thought we’d give it a try. We applied it to 1/4 of the bedroom area with a broom, as recommended. We waited 1 hour but didn’t get the results we wanted so we waited an additional hour and were amazed at what we saw. We used a string mop and hot water in an old bucket to mop up the product and in no time at all…there was the concrete floor and no more smelly, black mastic adhesive. We’re looking forward to removing the rest of the adhesive in one room and finishing with a second room tomorrow. I’m so glad we found your product and now we’ll feel safe and odor free when we’re ready to lay our new flooring next week. I highly recommend this product and wish we were able to purchase it locally through a hardware store or Home Depot. There are many old homes in our area and I plan to spread the word about Bean-e-doo.” Renee, LogFinish.com Customer
