Easy Maintenance: With its smooth surface, parquet flooring is easy to clean and maintain. Regular sweeping and occasional polishing will keep it looking its best, making it an ideal choice for busy households.
One of the most important stages of a parquet installation project is the acclimatisation of the wood flooring materials. Even when cut into flooring blocks of parquet, wood remains a natural product with a natural response to changes in its environment. When the humidity indoor moisture levels and temperature increase, there is a chance for parquet flooring blocks to start contracting and expanding. Normally, parquet will soon be back to its initial form and condition. However, in cases of extensive increase of humidity and temperatures, parquet floorboard may get damaged, including warped, cupped, unfixed, and sometimes the problem may be even beyond repair.
In order to avoid such extreme situations, it is highly recommended to have your parquet flooring materials acclimatised to their new environment on-site, which means leaving the floorboards out of their transportation packaging for a week and right in the room, where installation is planned. It is also important to make sure there is no reason for increasing indoor moisture levels in the room. Maintain a relative humidity of 50-60% and a temperature of around 18 degrees. Make sure that all pipework is working perfectly and there are no issues that require to be fixed.
All wet work – concrete, drywall, painting, etc. – should be finished long before the installation process so you can make sure the room has enough time to get back to and maintain standard moisture and humidity level. Acclimatisation is very important and you don’t want this process to be missed as it ensures the parquet floorboards are less prone to moving and warping. Once the parquet floorboards are adjusted, our parquet floor installation professionals can continue with the service.
Preparing the subfloor before parquet floor installation is one more essential step of the whole process. In order for our parquet floor professionals to be able to carry on with the laying of the parquet floorboards, the subfloor should be dry with a subfloor humidity not exceeding 12%, clean with all the dust, debris and traces of old adhesive removed, level and even, and structurally stable and healthy without water damage and squeaky areas.
In case the subfloor does not check all the above boxes, our experienced and reliable professionals will take care of it. The installation of an underlayment layer before the floorboards is always a good solution and alternative. This additional layer of underlayment will level the floor, ensure a cushioning, sound-proofing and insulation effect, and work as a moisture barrier that minimises the risk of water or moisture damage.
