Cleaning of parquet floor with oil paint

parquet
Cleaning of parquet floor with oil paint




The cover with oil and wax are the most environmentally friendly and natural, even heavy loads, a parquet coating. The oil particles penetrate into the wood, protect and nourish it, while the soil can breathe. On the ground surface, only a small protective film is formed.

Thanks to the protective properties of the oil, it has so far been possible to preserve the parquet floor in all palaces, as regular and regular care means that it is not necessary to crush the parquet floor evens under stress.

The secret is that oil-coated parquet can be locally restored, stains and dirt are removed without sanding the entire surface. Professional maintenance of parquet in Moscow at low prices, specialists of the company "Parquet Meter".

Periodic dry and wet cleaning
The floor, which is covered with oil, has anti-fouling properties, but requires periodic cleaning of dust and sand, which accumulates in particularly derivable areas.

The dry cleaning can be done with a vacuum cleaner or a broom that gets dirty at least once a week. It is recommended to use a mop and a microfiber cloth.

The wet cleaning is done with a mop with a special parquet floor cleaner, e.g., OSMO Wisch-Fix. It effectively removes small amounts of dirt and nourishes the wood thanks to its oil content, preventing it from drying out. It is important not to use aggressive, universal cleaners as these remove the protective layer of the parquet.



This cleaning takes place every week in a normal apartment, or every day, for places like restaurants or cafeterias.

It is also important to have carpets at the entrance of the room to catch the sand and dirt of the shoes.
Intensive cleaning of impurities For intensive floor cleaning use OSMO WRP. It cleans the floor of dirt and restores the structure of the protective layer of oil and wax, giving the floor a fresh look.

This treatment should be based on the level of contamination, about once every three months in the ward and once a week in public places such as cafeterias and restaurants. In heavily loaded rooms care oil should also be used. This will help to restore the coating without forming a film on the parquet surface.
Cleaning and restorative products are applied with a squeegee, e.g., OSMO Mop, or a FloorCenter-Polisher for a large surface treatment.Update of the protective layer

Even with careful care of the floors, it is necessary to renew the protective layer of oiled and waxed parquet regularly. But unlike the painted floor, it is not necessary to grind the old floor. And it is only possible to update the damaged areas locally.
The update process is fairly simple, but requires special skills.
At the beginning, the soil is thoroughly cleaned of all contaminants. Then apply a thin coat of oil with a roller, cheek or polisher using hard wax oil wax.

It is pleasant to entrust this process to professionals because too much oil can lead to negative effects. Masters helps you save time and money, and you get an updated floor that will thrill you and your family for years to come.

The main mistakes in laying parquet.

Parquet
                       Error in installing parquet caused many problems  




When installing parquet, there are often several unpleasant moments, such as cracks, landslides, warping, drying and others and mostly because of errors in installing
In this article we would like to give short answers to frequently asked questions.

In principle, all these questions and answers face the mistakes of placing a huge table. Due to its size, a solid table requires a lot of adhesives, fasteners, and uniformity of the base. The stress that occurs in large elements are infinitely higher, so the separation and expansion force is stronger.

A full description of the causes leading to the occurrence of certain deficiencies can be found in the articles on the placement of the parquet.
Errors in laying parquet have irreparable consequences.

Basic questions about floor installation:

1. Why does parquet crack?

Not only parquet can be weeping but also plywood. The crunch means that the structure is movable and the individual elements move when pressed. There can be several reasons: poor flooring, bad glue, poor quality parquet and plywood. There was a break from the base, see point 4.

2. On the floors are cracks or why the floor?

"Dried" wood, that is, has reduced its volume. The floors were wet during installation due to changes during manufacture and storage. The humidity in the room may be too low. The "contraction" of the parquet occurs when the humidity of the room is lower than the moisture of the panels. The evaporation of water from the wood causes a reduction of the parquet volume. If the process is acute, i.e., rapid, deformation or sagging may occur.

3. The edges of the cubes are rolled up, a box was formed, the edges of the floors are wavy.

Technologically, this is due only to the expansion of the top layer of the plate when the soil is drier. Then, due to the stress within the die, one turn is obtained, a similar feature is used in the thermostats, which connect two different metals in a single set. When heated, an element expands faster and the structure bends. Causes: a strong increase in humidity, the drying time has not developed tail before painting, the application of a large amount of paint in a day, the presence of unstable parquet in the film. We do not consider the water consumption because of the evidence.

4. Why did the soil fall off the ground?
 

If the soil is detached from the base, but has not been inflated and deformed, it is the reason for the glue, usually, quality parquet. The parquet has only glue, just press the nails for the first time. See what is on the bottom of the dice. When the tree is clean, the parquet is far from glue, glue - separation of plywood or rule, the rule - the destruction of the latter. Cheap adhesives when drying become limestone, remember! About the rule, read the articles about the placement of the soil, see above. Maybe the floor wastes glue or hurry to start the cycle, which did not allow the glue to adhere and block parquet. If a solid parquet or table "gets under your feet" or "rings", then this is just a consequence of a violation of the monolithic construction. And of course you cannot say anything about the moisture regime. An uncompacted mortar with a high water content, which works using moisture (plaster, sealing cement, etc.) without observing the rules that cause an increase in the moisture of the parquet and thus cause the wood to crack or deform. the last.



If the floor has been raised or removed from the concrete plywood, look also at the bottom of the plywood. A clean sheet: the glue did not hold, especially in the glue, in the recess of the rule, the remains of concrete, the destruction of the substrate. Do not rush to "drive" the quality of the materials. Maybe the technology is disturbed: the quality and strength of the rule, the drying time, still with primers.

5. The floor swelled or rose like a "little house".

the volume of wood increased with the increase in internal humidity, the plates rested against each other, there was no space to expand the parquet when it was swollen. Maybe the rule was wet, maybe there was a lot of glue, it did not fit the wood. There was no technological gap between the floor and the wall. For the same reasons, the plywood can be swollen. The parquet floor

If the ground was a wave after placement, then the reasons are the same. Due to the moisture change, the parquet began to expand, the internal tension appeared and as a result it increased in weak spots. It can manifest as single bulges and along the entire line of speech. Only for waves, you can take the deformation of the stumps, see point 3. It is possible to correct qualitatively only one partition with a possible truncation of the stumps or an analysis of the problem area to the next wall. All types of bites and injections are good in individual cases, if the damage is much better not to use it. The shooting of the rods are a "dead envelope" as it is.

6. The floor has fallen.

There are gaps under the floor. Perhaps the rule was not homogenous at first or collapsed during work and operation. This shows the quality of the rule. Read the articles about stacking.

7. When walking, the floor moves or "breathes".
 See point 4.

8. Under the floor is a void.

See point 4.

9. Dark spots appeared on the floor.
 

The moisture of the substrate is too high. From the interaction with water, the tree turns black, rots or forms fungi. These black and gray spots spread quickly through the wood. For example, a parquet floor laid the floor, the painters covered it with a film, and a month later they saw dark spots on the surface. The answer to the question of why dark stains appeared on the floor has also been completely transferred to the parquet and laminate floor. The protective lacquer layer acts like a film and prevents the escape of moisture. Look for the reason below. See the examples in the pictures for reference!

10. Draw the placement of the curve.

The relocation line has been eliminated. Low qualification of the teacher. He tried to condense the dice and changed them every time. As a result, at the end of the piece, the line "left". For example, the cubes in the tree must be offset by 90 degrees. If the parquet is of poor quality, the assistant attempts to make the end elements tighter, thereby reducing the angle, resulting in a curvature of the common line.

11. Matte, dark or whitish stains appeared under the varnish.

They did not let the glue dry. There is no room to go to the solvent and water, so there are dull spots under the paint. The grinding was carried out poorly, the remains of the chemistry (glue, lime and others) remained in the parquet and it came to a chemical reaction.

12. Broken or broken parquet.

This occurs when the moisture content of the wood changes, which changes the volume of the tree. If a sudden change, the parquet is exposed to a heavy load and due to the gap has no time to react with expansion or even drying. Causes: a strong increase in humidity, the drying time has not developed tail before painting, the application of a large amount of paint in a day, the presence of unstable parquet in the film. Bad flooring - too wet or too dry. We do not consider the water consumption because of the evidence. So, when the parquet is cracked, it is not difficult to understand the physics of the process, but there can be several reasons.

Install the tile on the wooden floor

Installation
How to install ceramic on wood floor




Ceramic tiles have long been one of the most practical and preferred soils, and their current availability and variety are increasingly reaching the limits of using this environmentally friendly finishing material.
The ideal base for tiles on the floor is concrete or at least cement mortar. But what do you do with people who have a wooden floor in the house?
There are two possibilities for event development:

 It is necessary to lay the tiles with concrete slabs on the wooden floor of the house. The same question has to be solved by the person who lives in the old house, where all the ceilings are made of wood (not only in the attic, but also among the floors).

As with the second option, the answer is clear: you should not do that.
Tiles: The material is quite heavy, and in old houses with wooden roofs loading bars should not be overloaded.

In 75% of cases, they are currently in a state of emergency. Therefore, the tiles are only allowed if the house has been checked and the floors replaced with new ones. Today, the loading bars of these houses are often converted to metal.
If the roofs are made of concrete and the floor is made of wood, this possibility is allowed.

But here we have to do some preliminary studies. If you decide to lay a tile floor on a wooden floor, you need to be clear about what it means to have such a commitment if of poor basic preparation and poor performance at work.
Possible consequences of laying tiles on a wooden floor:

The tile is placed on the glue. This creates a sealed surface that does not let air through. And for wood good ventilation is important, which does not get wet and rots.
Wood itself is an unstable material that changes state and size under the influence of the environment. The weather is not good either. Therefore, sooner or later, the wooden floor may gain mobility under conditions of high humidity or falling temperatures, which will cause cracking of the adhesive layer (and possibly tiles) and peeling of the coating ceramic. ,

Therefore, before deciding to install the tile floor on a wooden floor, you must check the floor condition and offset. Inspection of the condition of the soil

Begin the survey in the simplest way: Walk along the surface and cover the entire surface. Their job is to find the places where the forums "play".
This could mean: The tables are not very tied to shifts; The picture has already deteriorated and may rot; The decay deformed the trunks of the wood or simply the lining fell underneath.

Each of these options mean that you need to open the floor in these places and make the necessary repairs. If the ground seems to be strong and does not crack or "breathe", you should always open it in a corner. This is necessary to ensure that there are no signs of rot in the boards and delays or areas damaged by wood insects.



How to act in different situations

Depending on the nature of the floor, the preparation of the mosaic surface must be done in different ways. There are several options for event development:
quick preparation of the base;  the device of a ruler moistened on a wooden floor;
 Level the surface without moisture and dirt.

The quick preparation of the parquet can only be used when the wooden floor is in almost perfect condition: it is durable, dry and even.
The preparation requires a moisture-resistant dry wall and a highly elastic polyurethane adhesive, which will compensates for the possible movements of the wooden floor in the future. The work is carried out as follows:

Joined needs to be checked carefully to make sure it is at its horizontal level. If there are differences, they should be aligned with a fiberboard or paperboard of sufficient thickness. Two layers of GKVL are placed on a flat wooden base so that the leaf joints in the upper and lower rows do not coincide. At the same time, a clearance of 10 mm must be maintained between the wall and the floor surface.
The plasterboard joints must be filled with sealant. Then the surface is prepared.
Once the primer has dried, you can place the tiles in the usual way. After all the work, the space between floor and wall close with a socket.

This method is not used in very damp rooms: bathrooms and kitchens. Its advantage is the high speed of the work and the low relative cost of preparing the base. The "wet" method hardly differs from the filling of a conventional cement screed.But here it is necessary that the wood base is solid enough, because the rule has a lot of weight. If the soil is mounted on planks less than 40 mm thick, the stems are sufficiently separated (more than 400 mm). This method does not work.

For the fur device it can be used as a cement and sand mortar with a maximum thickness of 30 mm and self-leveling mixtures based on cement or polymer. Its use makes it possible to achieve a maximum thickness of 10 mm, which is important for small apartments with low ceilings. The work is carried out as follows:

The condition of the soil is carefully evaluated. If the boards are thick enough and the support legs are in a small condition, the floor can be used. If the deviations are rare, it is necessary to reinforce the soil structure with additional blocks formed between the delays. In such a situation, it is necessary that the boards of the raw soils are arranged at a distance of 8-10 mm from each other. This ensures better ventilation. Then the floor must be open in any case
On the floor with prose, you should spread the plate of wood or plywood with a thickness of at least 12 mm. The leaves are connected with a "bandage" of the joints at a distance of 2-3 mm..Then it is necessary to waterproof the surface by coating the film with polyethylene or other impermeable materials. The seal should go to the walls at a height of 7-10 cm. Then the rule is paid.

As you can see, this method requires a lot of work, but the base will be solid and reliable.

The basic dry method is often used by both professionals and internal workers. For this you need a chipboard or plywood. If the leveling material is to be mounted on the surface of the panels, the thickness must be at least 22 mm. If the ground is badly and the material joins the joints, its thickness should be at least 30 mm.

The installation is carried out as follows:
The plywood panels are cut into 4 squares, eliminating the internal stresses in the material. If the plywood is attached to the trunks, the distance between them must not exceed 400 mm. If it is larger, additional brackets need to be installed which will increase the rigidity of the base and will not bend the plywood.
The plywood is staggered, with a change of leaves in the adjacent rows. Use self-tapping wood screws for fastening.  When building the base, it is necessary to check constantly their horizontally so that the mosaics can be easily placed.

If it is not possible to buy thick plywood, you can use a thinner material, but put it in 2 layers and glue them together. The seams of these layers should not collapse. Leave a space of 2-3 mm between the leaves. Between the wall and the floor structure also a technological space of 10-12 mm width is observed. At the end of the job, it is filled with a sealant or mounting foam and then covered with a base. Once the rule has been strengthened, you can place the thumbnail.

Thereafter, the base is treated with an antiseptic and the seal are placed. to improve the adhesion of the plate to the substrate, it is possible to attach a sickle or a net of paint to then apply a primer layer.
What else should be considered?

Since the unit tiled the ground on a wooden basis, this is a rather controversial method to achieve a good result, should you not save.
Experts recommend:
Only buy quality materials from trusted suppliers. Do not use materials such as liquid nails, liquid glass, a mixture of polystyrene and nitrocellulose lacquer to fix the tile (you can find these recommendations). A  qualitative result is not guaranteed.
Buy a good glue that is suitable for working with the base that you have assembled. Not all tile adhesives are suitable for bonding tiles to plywood or chipboard. Do not immediately prepare a large amount of solution: capture quickly and you may not have time to solve it. Watch the technique of work: hurry can be expensive.

Choose the best wooden floor for your needs

parquet
Solid plank and parquet are the best for wooden floors




The wooden floor is a classic that suits every interior, in a city apartment and a country house. The wood has unique properties of thermal insulation and sound absorption, has a pleasantly warm surface and excellent appearance. The performance characteristics of the different types of wood may differ as well as the color. While some rocks easily survive cracks and falls, others can be damaged by simple heels. Both are used only in different rooms and in different types of soil. We determine which wooden floor is the best and which type of wood is best to choose in which case.

Types of wooden floors

This section could be neglected if the parquet is not interchanged with a parquet floor and a solid parquet floor. In fact, only two types of solid wood floors are: solid plank and Parquet.

Both products are made of solid wood, the treatment only served to, the necessary operation or aesthetic quality to live. It is a natural and half material.

The difference between a massive hallway and the parquet is huge: the parquet is much smaller. The average size of parquet slats are 50 * 600 mm, with a thickness of 15-16 mm, and a fixed length table can be 60 cm and up to 6 m, width from 7 to 20 cm, the thickness varies greatly.

The parquet board cannot be attributed to the matrix covers because it consists of three layers and only the top is made of expensive wood, the rest is cheaper softwood. Parquet board: cheaper price pile cover, whose longevity is lower than that of a full board, which can be explained by the lower number of possible polishes, because the valuable wood layer is many times thinner.

The choice of wood species depends more on where the flooring is used, under what conditions it is set up and what loads affect it. Regarding the rock and the type of coating, most types of wood are used, with few exceptions, for both parquet and solid wood. For a parquet panel, ash, beech, pine, birch and oak are the most commonly used.

Oak: the best option for the production of all types of soils. This is the standard for evaluating other types of wood. For strength and hardness, oak is often compared to concrete. The color palette of the wood is wide, there are about 200 shades: from light yellow to dark brown interspersed with green and gray. Over time, the oak has a slightly darker color, which makes it even more luxurious. In the wood, the annual rings are clearly visible.

Solid parquet and oak parquet can be made with or without lacquer. Everything depends on the personal preferences and the style of the interior: a table without lacquer - an option for the Scandinavian and ecological style, with lacquer - for the Rococo style, classic, modern.



The main advantages of oak:

high hardness, strength and durability, abrasion resistance, therefore, oak floors are used not only in homes, but also in restaurants, nightclubs, offices and other places with a large load;
High resistance to fire and moisture, oak wood is not subject to decay and spread of the fungus. Because these characteristics, he found an application in places with high humidity (kitchens, bathrooms and even bathrooms with saunas);
high sound insulation properties;
Excellent aesthetic qualities, beautiful natural pattern.

The disadvantage is only one: a lot of effort, but the investment is worthwhile, because the parquet or the oak panel can lasts for several decades.

Application: Residential and public spaces, corridors, bathrooms, kitchens, saunas and baths.

Ash - direct competitor of oak

From ash are also made and parquet, and a massive board, it is used to make a parquet board - it is equally good in all areas of use. By strength, he even bypasses the oak, and the fact that it is from the ash makes baseball bats and pens of sports equipment, speaks for itself. Wood has a light tint, so it is often used in cases where it is necessary to expand visually the room and bring warmth into it.

Benefits:

High strength, wear resistance and elasticity. Ashes are used to stop gyms, not to mention residential and business facilities;
excellent appearance;
good thermal insulation properties.

At least a high price and low resistance to low temperatures and temperature fluctuations, but for an apartment it will not be a problem.
Application: Residential and business premises, corridor, kitchen, fitness rooms.

Siberian larch - durability and moisture resistance

Of all types of cones, larch is the most durable and durable. The unique yield of the wood is explained by the more complicated growing conditions. Under constant exposure to moisture, the larch does not rot, but becomes denser. In strength it is only slightly less than oak, and for more durability it achieves it. In many European monuments with a hundred-year history, larch soils are still preserved. Also, the stacks on which Venice was built are of this breed.

Advantages:
old durability; Moisture resistance, mold and mildew resistance thanks to unique antiseptic properties. Larch wood is used to organize sources, terraces, bathrooms and bathrooms; Hardness and wear resistance allows the use of larch in restaurants, shops and sports halls;   It has more than 10 different shades, it perfectly preserves the color and texture, it does not blacken.

It is worthwhile that larch is more expensive than pine, but the yield is not comparable at all. If you look at longevity and resistance to all negative factors, larch can be considered a very worthwhile investment. It is only important to choose the right treated wood, otherwise a substantial part of the natural properties will be lost. You can trust the products of the company "Lesinter", presented on the site http://lesinter.ru. The manufacturer specializes in the production of Siberian larch wood, has its own resource base, has the latest equipment and offers products not only in Russia, but also in the United States. U., Japan and Western Europe. In the assortment of the company there is a wooden floor and a massive larch table, as well as a terrace, a board, a lining, a log cabin and other products. All products meet European quality standards.

Softwood: pine, spruce and fir

Pine, spruce and fir wood has gained popularity due to its low cost. If the funds allow, it's better to stop at other races. Use softwood in rooms where it is not common to walk with shoes. It creates a solid table and a floor (it is important that the elements have a connection likes a groove), and it is also used to make different layers of a parquet plate.

The properties of softwood are far from ideal, so its use is very limited:
Pine is characterized by the presence of a large amount of resin, which protects the wood from rot, has an excellent appearance, has a high vapor permeability, and releases phytoncides into the air, which is a natural antiseptic. The main disadvantage is the low hardness, so that even approximately heavy furniture feet can leave marks. The use is permitted in bedrooms and living rooms;
Spruce is even weaker than pine, so it is extremely rare to produce a floor covering;
Spruce is cheap, looks good, has healthy properties, does not tend to cry and does not cry at high temperatures, but fears moisture and has little resistance. As a floor covering we recommend no fir.

Alder: durability and benefits
For strength and durability, alder is not much worse than oak, has healing properties.
Advantages:
Resistance to deformation; The tannins contained in the wood have a positive influence on the microclimate of the room; adequate resistance to moisture.
Scope of application: bedroom, living room, children, bathroom.

Aspen - excellent moisture resistance

Trembling aspen wood is rarely used and is primarily related to superstition. But if you include common sense, you can find many positive qualities. This is the way to make the different parts of the bathroom.

Maple - strength and elasticity

The maple wood is considered one of the brightest and gets under the sunshine a pleasant golden tone. The main advantages of the unique model, hardness, bending strength, elasticity, but the use of a maple on board with differences in moisture content is recommended, so this floor is only used in rooms and salons, and it is not very common

Cedar: expensive and reliable
Much of the cedar wood is exported, so it's not so easy to get here, and it's expensive. Cedar is valued for its many benefits:

Resistance to high temperatures and humidity due to the special fiber structure of the wood;
high content of medicinal essential oils in wood; high strength and durability.
Application: Houses, kitchens, bathrooms, saunas, bathrooms.

Exotic tree species

The wood of exotic trees usually has exceptional operating characteristics and an unique pattern and color, but it also costs a lot. If the decorations allow you to decorate the interior in an unusual way, you can choose one of your many exotic breeds:

Merbau - the most popular breed among all exotic memories, oak for strength and resistance to high humidity. Appearance is a distinguishing feature. The wood has a complex pattern and the color of orange to almost golden brown, the shade has a property with time to change;

Zebrano - a very strong, dense and easy-to-use wood tree that has gained a lot of popularity because of its color, is dark brown stripes on a light background likes a zebra. The wood is very expensive and the high demand is threatened with extinction;

Rosewood in hardness and density are 2 times more than oak, has a color from brown to dark purple;

Tiger tree was named for its specific color, has the high strength and density, is moisture resistant, has been used in shipbuilding. It is mainly used for parquet production, solid connections are rare;

Bamboo does not apply to trees, but is used to make parquet and parquet boards. The manufacturing technology consists of heating, smoothing the bars and pressing into special chambers. It turns out to be a solid board with an interesting design that is not as expensive as its exotic counterparts, because bamboo is growing fast;

Wenge differs in dark brown to black almost wood. It is strong, firm, easily withstands mechanical influences, resistant to fungi. When the drying technology is broken, the wood starts to crack, so it is very important to be careful when buying it.

Exotic breeds also include Jatoba, Yarra, Sucupira, Mutenia and incredibly strong kempas, as well as water-resistant and iroko-resistant teak. If not exotic, walnuts, pears, cherries and acacia trees can be used, but they are not often used to make floors.

When buying a wooden floor, pay particular attention to the geometry and characteristics of the wood surface: the elements should be easily joined with no cracks, blues and other defects. A manufacturer who praises packs the products into a hard carton and a thermal film. It is worth taking the time to choose and study the market, then decades to enjoy the beautiful grounds

How to wood floor care and maintenance


maintenance
Wood floors need more maintenance




As we know that wood floor care and maintenance are more expensive than the ceramic floor because the wooden floor is more difficult to take care of tile floors. It is necessary for ways to clean up and cause damage or dirty are difficult to clean

Quality wood floors can last very long if the maintenance is done properly and effectively, especially to protect from scratches and moisture which will reduces the quality of the wood flooring.
Wooden floors should not use water and soap as this will be faster would spoil it.
The most common use is to use a broom and clean up with a vacuum. Use fabric regular moisturizer. Sometimes a lot of dirt is very difficult to be cleaned with a cloths like a regular moisturizer. For that there are several cases of dirt on the hard wood floor must know the cause so it is easy to clean.

Wood floor cleaning must be done carefully, if not stout effects as many black lines that could occur on the floor.
This could be caused by something being dragged up repeatedly, causing black spots..
One way to cope is to sand if it is difficult to clean with water and soap. Sandpaper used to be really soft as 800 grit.



Another cause for example traces of glue on the floor and of course you do not like the possibility of this happening when installing wood flooring.
This is actually how strong varnish and wax wooden stick. You need a good solvent to clean up the wood glue, but do not interfere with wood that has been installed properly. Of course you try it first as a window cleaner. If you still cannot also be tried by WD-40.

To clean the wood floor there is also the use of vinyl or acrylic. The use of such materials can result in increasingly dull floors and slippery.

Another case that arises is when you sweep appears stripes and sometimes there are also spots.
For that you vacuum cleaner and to a certain area should use carpet. The use of a vacuum cleaner must also comply with the recommendations.

Commercial cleaning can be done with professional services using a regular wax to wooden floors. Thus the dirt will stick to the wax on the floor so that cleaning is not so difficult even if impurities such as oil and spill food or drink. So is protected from scratches on the floor.

Companies that provide services in cleaning the floors would have a very experienced and well-informed about the causes and how to clean different types of dirt and cause damage as well as how to care for hardwood floors properly.

Laminate good or bad

Laminate
Good or bad laminate wood depends on the design




Laminate wood flooring good or bad can be determined by several factors . It is related to the design and also with the installation . The design forms a very broad and flexible be a distinct advantage . Weakness in ordinary wood can be covered with laminate wood because it has several layers such as scratch-resistant coating as the topmost layer . Wood laminates are artificial materials with technological advances so that this material has the advantage . This material does not fade and is resistant to UV . The advantages of laminate flooring a popular material for modern home interior design .

Installation is also relatively quickly because it is the pieces that can be fitted together for the entire floor . Moreover, if installed by a professional services that work can be done more quickly . Installation costs are also relatively low .
You can also DIY follow the installation instructions in accordance with the thickness of each material and get tips for laying.
