Maintenance work is usually aimed at maintaining the "fresh" appearance of the coating

  • Middle Remo nt etc. gadfly in cases where there were clear signs of flaws floor - he began creak, faded,on the surface appeared dark or bright spots, the individual dice are in motion, and others.
Partial repairs are often necessary to have recourse to the replacement of individual elements of parquet

partial repairs are often necessary to resort to the replacement of individual elements of parquet

  • ma nt etc. Gadfly due to long service lifeor in case of a sudden complete damage, for example, by flooding the room.

qualitatively assembled parquet flooring will last for decades, if every three - five years conduct its revision and maintenance work, as required by correcting even minor flaws.During the operation on the surface may be formed such small damage like scratches that you should promptly wipe - the more scratches, the more it becomes turbid coating.

Small defects do not require major repairs, they may well be eliminated locally.

The reasons for the emergence of various defects on the floor are the following factors:

  • Long coating operation.
  • mechanical damage to the surface when moving furniture and walking in shoes with sharp heels or taps.
  • water seeps under the flooring base, excessive humidity or high temperature in the room that facilitates deformation and drying wood.
  • very harmful parquet too often conducted by wet cleaning, especially with the use of large quantities of water - it leads to the development of putrefactive processes in the wood dies, if moisture gets between them and does not have time to dry.
  • appearance of mold colonies, fungi, insects harmful to wood.

  • Before repairing flooring with burial of organic chips, it is necessary to carry out the process of cleaning them with a vacuum cleaner.The deepening cleavage must be absolutely clean - just in case any of the fillers will have good adhesion to the wood surface.

- Normal plaster on wood can be used for deep cleavages - in this case it would be better to hold on.

  • This mixture is applied to the gap formed between the dies, and allowed to dry, and it surplus immediately wiped from the surface of the parquet.The embedded portions of this composition to dry for a long time - about 10 ÷ 14 days, but if you give them a good freeze, then putty securely will hold and protect the coating against moisture penetration through cracks.
  • gap between the dies can be formed, and around baseboards, if laid piece parquet. To eliminate this problem, it is necessary to raise the plinth - possibly weakened wedges or he general for any reason is missing.In this case, you need to change or install a spacer between the wall and at a die sized to the place of the plinth can be installed.

cranky dies

Parquet without due care, may eventually crack from dryness, even more so, if indoor constant temperature is above normal, or if temperature changes occur very often and quickly.Under the influence of such a die dry, become smaller and, therefore, become loose.
