How to Keep Your Parquet Floor Looking Sensational

15 Aug. 2016

Parquet flooring looks absolutely stunning when it's first installed, but over the course of time, you may need to perform maintenance or repairs in order to keep it this way. The flooring in your home makes a big statement and few surface types offer the same wow factor as parquetry. Read on to learn how to keep it looking as fresh and beautiful as the day it was laid down.

What is Parquet Flooring?
This type of floor is made up of various pieces of timber arranged at angles and in designs. It has been used in homes for over 400 years and has retained its popularity over the centuries because it is tough, durable and beautiful. While you can cover up older floors with parquet material, it also works well as a brand new surface. The types of wood used in parquet flooring include pine, oak, cherry and maple.

Day to Day Cleaning
Since parquet floors are made from wood, you need to follow the cleaning guidelines associated with timber. Sweep or vacuum the floor as often as necessary in order to remove dirt and debris. When it comes to mopping or polishing the parquetry, only use products specifically designed for the purpose. Harsh chemicals can damage the surface of your flooring.

Make sure you keep the humidity in your home at a reasonable level. If your parquetry sustains moisture damage, it could become warped over time. Leave windows open when cooking and invest in a dehumidifier.

DIY Repairs
After a number of years, the parquet flooring may begin to wear out which means you must reseal it. The first step involves sanding the surface and removing imperfections. Then you should use a sealing product to give your parquetry a protective coating. The resealing process is an excellent way to make your flooring look as good as new when done correctly.

If the parquetry is damaged, use a drill to place shallow holes in the damaged area and get rid of the wood with a chisel. Cut the new piece of parquet flooring to size and use a special adhesive to ensure it sticks. If you're not good at DIY projects, hire a professional to perform the repairs.

Choose parquet flooring if you want the rooms in your home to have a unique appearance. It can add style and elegance to any room in your home and fits perfectly with almost any decor style. With regular cleaning and maintenance, you should be able to enjoy your parquet floor for years to come.
