Frequentnly asked questions

We would like to inform you about interesting facts on the subject of wood and its processing.

Classic parquet flooring

Wood is considered one of the most valuable natural materials; it is warm, antistatic and elastic. It allows a healthy stay as it is a very suitable flooring for allergy sufferers, and it is also suitable from an ecological point of view. Solid parquet is considered a long-term investment, as it can last for several generations if properly maintained.

Before you decide to buy parquet flooring, it is very important that you look at the right samples. These must be varnished or otherwise protected, as the color of the wood changes when it is coated with varnish, oil or wax. Printed photos in catalogs are not the right criteria for choosing a shade.

However, the installed floor will not have exactly the same pattern because the texture of each tree is different. Each plank is unique. That is why parquet is so valuable.

Yes, based on our many years of experience with the installation of parquet, we recommend solid parquet for installation on floors that are equipped with underfloor heating. For underfloor heating, you must choose a thinner solid parquet with a thickness of 15 mm. Such parquets are durable in all periods, in winter when the underfloor heating is on and also in summer when the underfloor heating is off.

Based on our many years of experience, we recommend using solid parquet for heated floors. Underfloor heating works at lower temperatures, as the water in the pipes does not exceed 30°C. With underfloor heating there are no large temperature fluctuations because the heating runs constantly throughout the winter, so the wood warms up and also gives off heat. It is also important that it feels comfortable in the summer months when the underfloor heating is off.

For underfloor heating it is necessary to choose a thicker parquet - we recommend a thickness of 15 mm. Such parquets are durable at all times, in winter when the underfloor heating is on, and also in summer when the humidity in the room is high.

The color of wood is affected by light and sunlight, as they accelerate the natural oxidation process. We must know that the oxidation of wood is a natural process that cannot be prevented, but with the right distribution of light we can achieve its uniform effect.

Lacquered parquet flooring

We choose lacquered parquet when we want a high gloss floor that requires less maintenance, is easier to clean and offers better protection against stains and liquids.

Varnished parquet is protected preventively by not walking on it with shoes, thus preventing dirt and stones from entering the room. The underside of the furniture and the legs of the chairs are protected with felt or rubber glides, which do not damage the floor.

Restoration is recommended when the varnish wears out and you notice damage to the floor, such as dents and scratches. On average, lacquered parquet needs to be renewed every 10 to 15 years. When renovating the parquet, sand the entire surface and, if necessary, repair deeper damage. Followed by re-application of varnish. You can also opt for oil instead of varnish.

Oiled parquet flooring

Oiled parquet looks more natural and feels warmer compared to lacquered parquet. Damage to the parquet can also be easily oiled, whereas lacquering requires the entire surface to be re-sanded and re-varnished.

Clean the oiled parquet with a damp cloth, a broom or a vacuum cleaner, but be sure to use a soft brush that will not damage the surface. It is necessary to use cleaning products for oiled parquet, as they are not aggressive and do not destroy the protection. For all further information you can contact us or visit the page about parquet care.

No, oiled parquet is just as impact resistant as varnished parquet if it is properly protected and maintained.

It is possible to oil parquet that has been previously varnished. It is necessary to remove the top layer of varnish thoroughly so that the oil can be absorbed well into the wood and does not leave stained areas.

The frequency of renewal depends on your lifestyle. Rooms where you spend more time wear out faster than bedrooms, for example. It is recommended to re-oil the parquet every few years, depending on wear and tear.

The smell of oil is less intense than the smell of varnish. If the room is well ventilated, the oil will not smell for 24 hours after application.

Wooden terraces

The wooden terrace is easy to maintain. If you want your wooden terrace to keep its natural color, it must be cleaned and oiled annually. Otherwise, it will turn gray and form a gray protective layer - patina.

The natural color of wooden terrace can be maintained by regular oiling. The frequency of oiling depends on the method of manufacture, the location of the terrace and exposure to sun and rain. To fully preserve the natural color, we recommend oiling 2 times a year.

First clean the terrace thoroughly with suitable cleaning agents, let the surface dry and then lubricate it with a suitable oil.

Parquet installation

Once the parquet is installed, it can be walked on within 24 hours. After varnishing or oiling the parquet, a waiting period of 24 hours is required. Placing furniture or a larger load on the floor is recommended 2-3 days after the application of the protection.

The drying time of the leveling compound depends on the thickness of the coating and the climatic conditions in the room. Contact us for more information.

If the screed is not level or has not been properly made, the floor must be leveled with a leveling compound.

When laying and sanding parquet, we use state-of-the-art machines that vacuum up the excess dust. At the end of the installation, the room is tidied up and cleaned. We recommend that the final bleaching is carried out after the parquet has been laid or renovated.

The installation and renovation of parquet can be carried out at any time of the year. It is only necessary to provide suitable climatic conditions - the screed must be dry and level, and the moisture in the screed should not exceed 2%, according to the method CM.
