Parquet maintenance

In the modern furnishing concept, parquet is a very important element in interior design. As with all furnishing elements, its maintenance is very important. It is about a few simple tips that will keep your parquet in perfect condition for a long time.

Let’s start with the room temperature: the place where we live is the same as where the parquet “lives”, and it is advisable to maintain a temperature around 20 ° C with a variation of more or less 1 °c, with an air humidity between 45% and 65% especially in the drier, winter months, it is a good idea to try to maintain these ranges, with the help of environmental humidifiers, houseplants and humidifiers on radiators. This will give you a healthy environment and allow the parquet to remain stable for a long time.

Outside these parameters, microcracks or swelling can occur, depending on the magnitude of the temperature variation and the type of wood.

It may seem obvious, but placing a good quality doormat at the entrance will allow you to clean your shoes well and so to avoid brining in any small stones or sand that could scratch the parquet.

Also avoid loading the floor with large weights concentrated in small areas on the parquet.

Avoid covering the floor, especially in the first period with rugs or other.

Dropping heavy or pointed objects could cause scratches or dents.

Pets can cause the formation of grooves/scratches and stains/marks.

For objects and furniture with castors make sure that they are equipped with special rubber for parquet.

Embers or flames will cause the formation of burns.

Over time, ultraviolet rays can vary the colour and tone of the parquet (oxidation effect).

The room temperature should be maintained at 20 ° with a variation of more or less 1 °c;

It is advisable to keep the air humidity between 45% and 65%, especially during the drier winter months by using environmental humidifiers, indoor plants and humidifiers on radiators to maintain a healthy level of humidity;

Outside these parameters, microcracks or swelling can occur, depending on the magnitude of the temperature variation and the type of wood; In extreme cases, the flooring can become  unstuck.

Avoid:

The overload of small portions of the wood flooring with excessive weight (furniture with very small legs);

Initially using rugs;

Using acidic or abrasive detergents to clean the wooden floor.

Cleaning instructions

If necessary, wash with specific detergent soap for varnished wooden floors.

To restore a shine, polish and nourish using revitalizing polish for parquet floors.

To restore a shine, polish and nourish using a specific self-polishing wax for oiled floors.

For special maintenance, use a specific toning oil purely for graying floors or floors with obvious signs of wear that are starting to show signs of abrasion.
