Parquet wood floor treatment

Parquet floors need intensive care

The best way to clean the parquet flooring needs special attention. Parquet wood flooring has become very popular because it is suitable to use modern interior design.
The same is also caring for the wood-based furniture. Parquet floor care also requires the same rigor.

The things that are common to clean the wood or parquet flooring is a sweeping advance. When you do too much washing use water because it will damage the parquet and can lead to rot. The main enemy of the parquet is moisture then use a vacuum cleaner or dry cloth to remove all traces of dust. Humidity in the parquet can cause pressure differences as a result of the joints on the parquet floor to escape. Puddles on the parquet will cause water trapped in layers of plywood and make a rotten wood.

There is a special detergent to clean the parquet. If you use a vacuum cleaner that also use an additional coating layer should not be scratched or chipped. You can also varnish parquet floor so the floor will be shiny. The cloth used to clean gently cleaned specifically for special cleaning parquet.

If parquet flooring food or beverage stains, you should clean it with a dry cloth. You can use a special fluid for parquet when the dirt is difficult to be appointed. Be careful when you move stuff because it can lead to scratched floors. We recommend that all furniture legs coated with rubber so as not to cause scratches on the floor. Try to move goods by pushing it on the floor because of the way it will potentially damage the floor.

You can perform periodic maintenance on the parquet floor with wax or varnish re-process each month with special polishing parquet and every two years to re-do the coating. To clean dirt that is very difficult as the paint on the floor you can use a cutter to scrape debris that stick up all the dirt up. You have to do it carefully so as not to damage the surface of the wood. Keep the timber melamine layer is scraped off,  then you can rub it back up to look uneven. Parquet floor does require more intensive care than ordinary floor.

In terms of transformation, today's families are looking for smarter and cheaper ways to beautify their habitats. As far as the flooring is concerned, the possibilities are endless and can be one of the most expensive and daunting decisions in terms of renovation. Although there are many options, such as carpets, tiles, even concrete, parquet is another option that is sometimes overlooked. It's a durable product that is easy to install and can last for decades. It is a meaningful and aesthetic improvement for every room in the house, from the kitchen to the basement. Parquet can be laid on concrete as well as on hardwood, laminate or ceramic tiles, making it a simple DIY project.

The parquet dates back to 1684, when he replaced marble in Versailles, France. The previously used marble floor needed to be constantly cleaned and water flowed into the underlying floor supports and allowed it to rot. Parquet, known for its beauty and strength, was also easier to clean and its use spread quickly. Nowadays parquet floors are made of solid parquet and parquet boards using different types of wood such as oak, pine, mahogany and walnut. The solid parquet consists of wooden blocks glued in different patterns. The best known is the basic pattern. It's typically 3/4 "to 5/8" thick and tack-tolerant, as opposed to nailing, as is traditionally done with hardwood floors. Parquet boards are hardwood veneers that are glued to less expensive wood such as plywood. The film (also called wear layer) can have a thickness between 1/4 "and 1/16". It is assembled with glue using tongue and groove joints.

The cost of parquet is only one of its attractive assets. There is one floor for all budgets and all needs. Depending on the type of floor, whether solid or veneered, the wood chosen and the thickness of the wood, it varies from $ 0.99 per square foot to over $ 60.00 per square foot. Hardwood floors are more expensive, but can be sanded and restored throughout the life of the floor, while sanding or finishing the floorboards can make the finish to the cheaper wood underneath. Great care should be taken not to spoil the ground.

Medallions are also available, and although they are usually quite expensive, they are beautiful works of art and the design knows no bounds. The cost is usually between $ 1,300 and $ 3,500, depending on the size and type of wood used. The medallions use some of the most exotic woods, which greatly increases their costs. The care of the floors is simple and generally requires only a wet mop to give them the best possible look.
Guarantees for the floors vary. Some hardwood floors are covered for life, while less expensive boards can reach 25 years, depending on the thickness of the veneers.

Just for fun, one of the most famous floors began its journey in 1946 as the floor of the original Boston Arena, home of the Celtics. In 1952, he was completely transferred to the Boston Garden, where the Celtics used him until 1995, when he returned to today's Fleet Center, now TD Garden. The floor was used until 1999, when it was cut and partly sold as a souvenir, since the Boston Garden was demolished in 1998. Today, the Celtics play on a floor very special parquet floors. Origin and the new.  If you choose a new floor, parquet can be just what you need to make it so beautiful.
