Repair Your Floor Inside and Out With The Help Parquet Floor Restoration?

Posted on February 7th, 2012 In: Blog

Parquet floor repair begins with an assessment of blocks that have come loose, have got damaged or are missing. Take care to identify all blocks that are improperly attached to the underfloor.

Perhaps the most difficult part of parquet flooring restoration is getting rid of the residual bitumen that may have been applied to act as an adhesive in earlier days. Ensure that the underfloor and the blocks are as free as possible of bitumen. Otherwise, the effectiveness of modern adhesives will be undermined.

Another critical step in parquet floor repair is the levelling of the underfloor. If the underfloor is concrete, level using an acrylic levelling compound. An uneven sheet material underfloor can be levelled using a hand sander.

Block re-installing should be done closely approximating the original laying pattern. Parquet adhesive can be applied to the floor using a trowel with a notch. This enables the adhesive to be laid on as a ridge on which the blocks can be firmly placed.
While carrying out parquet floor sanding, ensure that the whole floor is sanded, and not just the patch that has been repaired.
Finally, impart a professional touch to your parquet floor restoration project by filling gaps neatly, carrying out a last round of sanding, and applying the finish.
