What are parquet floors?
Solid wood floors, laid in geometric patterns, is known as parquet flooring. Enhancing the warm atmosphere of the home, parquet flooring are a popular choice to many. They come in various species of wood, such as indonesian teak, burmese teak, oak, walnut, cherry, lime, pine and maple wood. Each type adds a different effect to your home, which makes parquet flooring highly valued in any interior design.
Parquet flooring weathers naturally and gracefully, while giving a warm ambience and timeless appeal to the home. The main difference between wood flooring and other flooring type such as vinyl and engineered flooring, it is more durable and can be sanded down or varnished when required. The material also provides a natural grip, and has acoustic properties that aid noise absorption, as compared to other natural flooring materials, such as marble.
Hardwood floors (parquet tile) are easy to clean – simply wipe the surface with a damp mop. The wooden flooring does not trap odours, making it more hygienic and suitable for Singapore’s tropical climate.
However, to keep its timeless appeal, it is important to maintain and polish regularly.
Why do my parquet floors look worn out?
The list of parquet flooring pros goes on but there are also several reasons why a parquet floor might need repairing. It is important to be aware that performing a parquet flooring repair on your own without professional advice, pulling up damaged blocks, can spell further damage to the floor, causing something of a chain reaction and meaning more blocks get taken out than was originally necessary. As such, it's good to get the input of a professional first.
Some of the most common issues faced by owners of an original parquet flooring include:
As compared to other floorings, wood parquet flooring also tends to trap moisture easily. Given the humid climate in Singapore, the parquet flooring may absorb moisture and become warped, leaving small gaps in between the tiles. These gaps can catch crumbs, dirt and dust, affecting the cleanliness of your place.
Additionally, if you have pets at home, it is important to know that their nails can be one of the factors that affect the look of your parquet flooring. As they walk and run around with their long nails, they may cause scratches to the floor.
Why do I need to polish my parquet floors?
While simple mopping, wiping with a soft cloth or using a vacuum cleaner may help maintain some shine to your parquet flooring, they still need special polishing, cleaning and maybe sanding to restore its original look. The quality and colour of these parquet flooring may fade off with time and polishing them can ensure the lasting beauty of your parquet flooring.
Polishing your parquet flooring is necessary to prevent it from looking dull and unappealing. Helpling's Parquet Polishing service can help protect the wood's quality and improve the overall look and feel of your parquet flooring. The added polish acts as a protective barrier against scratches and damages that can come from wear and tear, stains and gauges from your daily routine.
For people suffering from asthma, or have other allergies, polishing your wooden floor can prevent it from being a breeding ground for dust mites.
By adding an extra layer of shine and protection, it ensures that your parquet floors can maintain its original appearance for years to come.
How often should I get my parquet floors polished?
Although parquet floors are generally easy to maintain through mopping and vacuuming, it is still recommended that you polish your parquet floors once every year. This is to remove dirt and dust that might be out of reach or trapped between the tiles.
However, you might live in an area where dirt can be tracked into your home, such as places near construction sites or industrial areas. In such cases, you might want to opt for twice a year to ensure the maintenance of your parquet floors.
