Two most destructive components of sunlight are UV and IR (infrared) rays. IR generates heat and UV bleaches the floor. Your board’s material fades and ages more quickly. This color change process is dependent on floor’s exposure to direct or indirect sun rays.
Solution to the problem
Manufacturers of stains and finishes use UV inhibitors to slow the discoloration. But this problem cannot be totally avoided. Huge expanses of glass windows allow sun’s rays to penetrate in easily. This aids in the process of oxidation.
