Currently in the building materials market, wood flooring mainly contains hardwood flooring, laminated flooring and engineered wood flooring, as well as some “other” floorings, such as cork flooring, bamboo flooring.

1)  Hardwood flooring —— in pursuit of comfort and enjoying Traditional solid wood flooring are still charming, drawn from natural wood, and the prices are different according to different wood species. In the process hardwood flooring does not require any bonding process, just processing by equipment. Commonly there are flat, tongue and groove, finger-jointed, integrated wood floors.

Solid wood flooring is more expensive, is the one of the high-end products. Price of Ash wood floors are about USD18 / sqm, while the precious wood species such as teak wood flooring is more than USD67 / sqm. Its advantage is that it feels good to walk with grades. But if not handled properly it will easily deform, requiring regular waxing, not easy to clean.

2)  Engineered wood flooring —— hard to deform Engineered wood flooring can be divided into multi-layer engineered wood flooring, three-layer engineered wood flooring, characterized by good dimensional stability.

Multi-layer engineered wood flooring use multilayer solid wood plywood as substrate, and then stick the precious wood mosaic panels with a certain thickness on the above or sliced ​​veneer sheets for the panel, and then through synthetic resin glue —— urea-formaldehyde resin or phenolic resin plastic hot pressing, and then processed into the floor.

As the name suggests, three-layer engineered wood flooring apart to see is composed of three layers, the surface with high-quality specifications of rare hardwood slats mosaic panels, the core layer with the fast-growing soft wood, the base layer with the fast-growing poplar wood or other hardwood. Three layers are through synthetic resin glue hot pressing, and then processed into the floor.

But for a small apartment, it won’t look better after paving just pieces of wide wood flooring and placing the furniture. The narrow plank wood flooring is suitable for small rooms, it will look better with their colors, patterns, and effects, larger rooms should be paved with wide wood flooring to make a sense of wholeness, and more smooth. If we want to pave wide wood flooring for small rooms, should not chooe too wide ones, then it will also reach the effect of spaciousness.

  1. to be strict with the installation procedures

Qualified wide wood floors mostly are through strict material selection and quality acceptance. High quality and wide wooden floors should be natural clear in terms of tone, texture, which are the premise of high quality construction. In the midst of construction, wide wood floors on ground roughness requirement is higher than the narrow wooden floors. With the improvement of technical level, wider wood flooring has been great improvement in the stability, but the stability relative to the narrow wooden floors, there is still a certain gap. Therefore, must ensure strict installation procedures.

  1. regarding the lifetime of the wide wood flooring

The lifetime of the timber flooring is basically relative to the wear-resisting, regardless of wide and narrow sizes. Under the same unit area, fewer joints, expansion space will be smaller, but this case flooring increases chance of deformation. While for narrow wood flooring, more joints, expansion space will be larger, not easy to deform, no cracks. However, another new problem appears again, the gap edge of the acacia flooring is easy to wear. More gaps, narrow wood flooring will be more easy to wear, two types both have pros and cons.

What standards we should consider when choosing wood floorings

There are a few standards that you could refer:

1. Moisture Content: Generally speaking, timber flooring distributors should have moisture content testing equipment. International standard of MC is 8% to 13%. Moisture content which has a 2% gap is regarded as qualified of the same size and materials.

2. Lacquer: The films are clean, bright, non-bubble, and good at wear resistant. Besides, by staining colors on the wood floorings, we can reduce the color variation and surface defect. The paint surface is divided into paint roller and leaching paint, and their qualities are different. Films with the same thickness have a great gap with the cost of finishing. Therefore, hardwood flooring with natural color, stained color, and busty films is you first choice.

3. Precision: Unpacking about 8 pieces, unarmed assembly, observe whether the tongue and groove engagement gap, the difference in height between adjacent panels, such as the strict commissure, feel no significant difference in height can be.

4. Core material: First, confirm whether It is the same wood species, whether there has dead festival floor, cracking, decay, mold and so on. As for the color of the wood flooring, the living presence of the festival is reasonable, a little uneven color and pattern are natural wood products and cannot be avoided. These natural color, pattern long as the pavement with a reasonable, there are still feeling a return to nature.

Then, should the timber flooring under our foot also wear mask? It is well known that floor “Mask” is mainly focused on floor waxing techniques, then how to DIY the mask?

We all know that the general floor waxing polishing technology is mainly carried out through a polishing machine to achieve the whole process, but it’s not any one person who own the polishing machines, and have to hire professionals to do floor maintenance. Although today’s various flooring company in the aftermarket and maintenance services do very intimate place, but those with a traditional old ideas still finds older people’s eyes more realistic hands at home, so Xiaobian DIY waxing polishing method to teach we hope that we will be able to experience at home.

Floor mask forming steps: First, pewter and kerosene 1: 4 weight ratio boiled, mix the right amount of turpentine and oil, then pack into the cloth, wipe the surface of the floor repeatedly, old cloth dipped in wax and then wipe it again, the number of hours later with a canvas bag with fine wood flooring wax face will turn bright polished. Then wipe the surface, to be dry, with a dry cloth dipped in melting the wax coating boil on the ground, but not too thick, coated with 3 square meters per post, then wipe with a clean cloth, which would shine Kam.

We recommend this simple DIY floor “mask” that is only suitable for occasional use, not frequently overused, just like the skin on his face, like excessive use of mask, both reach moisturizing skin effect, but led to loss of water crisis facing serious skin . Therefore, flooring maintenance experience is the same, I hope you remember.
