for a small area, we do not need to restore it. Instead, we can choose to put furniture or

carpet to cover the damaged area. If there are some minor scratches, we can invite the

At first, although lacquered wood floorings can reach repair effect, we can not ensure that

we reach environmental protection standard. Therefore, we’d better invite after-sales

service staff to do lacquered restoration. We could ensure repair effect and environmental

pretection if we use specialized restoration paint or gel.

Next, for partial restoration, we should break those whihc need to replace, and then take

saw their surface, split them into pieces and get them out. During this peocess, we should

make sure that we would not damage the surrounding  hardwood flooring. After taking out

the floorings, we shall clean up the glue to ensure that the cleaned mortises are convenient

to install. If we do not clean them up, the seam will come to be unflat or untight. When

vestige and keep the floorings good-looking.

them on the interspace. At first, we can put the angles of long size and short size to the

original rabbet, then press it and use specialized tools to smash it. Please aware that before

installation, we shall measure whether the length is the same as the new wood floorings.

If the new solid wood floorings are longer, we can shorten them. If they are shorter, we

have to change them, and this will cause losses.
