Repair Wood Floors. Repairing and refinishing your hardwood floor can be challenging. Still, with proper preventive measures and maintenance techniques, your hardwood floor can be in as good condition as the first time you install it, even after several years.

Some of the best hardwood floors, for example, have stood the test of time and stood for decades, even more than a century. 

If you take a look at the old houses that still stand today, you will see how their hardwood floors have remained intact and stable through the years.

Benefits of Our Wooden Floors

Therefore, if we want to enjoy the aesthetic and functional benefits of our wooden floors, we must know how to properly take care of them so that they do not easily succumb to wear and tear. Because hardwood floors are organic and can potentially decay, cleaning regularly is necessary. The wooden floors, for example, are quite expensive but are durable if they are cared for and properly maintained.

Cleaning of Hardwood Floors

There are several techniques for the proper cleaning of hardwood floors. On the one hand, you should not use a damp cloth to clean it because moisture could damage the finish. If the floor has been waxed and coated with a finish, there is no reason to worry about water seeping into the wood.

Maintenance And Repair Of Timber Floors:

Wood floors are typically treated with natural wood paint or varnish covered with wax to achieve a glossy finish. Most builders and homeowners prefer the one that is water-based when repairing them. Water-based materials, however, require a series of coats to ensure a nice strong and shiny finish.

Use On Hardwood Floors

When sweeping, use brooms with soft, wide bristles, as they are the most effective at removing dirt and dust. The wrong broom could just collect dirt in the wrong places and lead to future headaches. There are also cleaning products that are exclusive for use on hardwood floors. Don't experiment with other cleaning materials, or you may regret it.

Spraying Floor Cleaner

If your hardwood floor has a lot of black stains and scratches, sanding the area lightly and then reapplying a finish coat will make your floor like new again. If sticky gum on your hardwood floor is your problem, then you should apply ice until it becomes brittle enough to peel off easily. For harder-to-remove gum, try spraying floor cleaner on it to loosen it.

The wood floors will last a lifetime and more if properly maintained and cleaned and regularly. Therefore, it is our responsibility to apply the proper methods to achieve this.

 

The PVC Floor

Today the PVC floor is back in vogue because it is made with shapes and decorations of great effect. The advantage is that this type of flooring is very thin: from 3 to 6 mm. Then with a very light layer of glue, it can be laid on the existing flooring. You don’t even need to grout the joints. PVC floors are suitable if you have a limited budget and limited time. PVC will renew your home in an instant and is comfortable, practical and fast.

The Resin Floor

Resin flooring has become all the rage in the last 10 years. It has the advantage of having a minimum thickness, of presenting thousands of coloured shades and of being more hygienic because it is free from joints. It is not easy to lay if the substrate is not carefully studied and laid well; in fact, you risk seeing the underlying floor or unsightly grooves. It cleans up in no time.

The Wooden Floor

 

The absolute advantage of parquet is that in an instant, the house will become warm and welcoming. However, the installation of the laminate is very long and more complex. The skilled worker will fit the individual strips together, all without adding glue. Delicate in maintenance. However, it has a very long yield.

The Ceramic Floor

The most classic of the choices for paving an apartment are ceramic tiles. The choice is huge. On the market, there are beautiful, very thin ceramic tiles from 3 to 5 mm and in the most disparate shapes and colours. In recent times, the narrow and long shapes that imitate parquet in the veins, or the large rectangular slabs, all in earth colours or in the range of greys, are very fashionable. The ceramic floor solution is one of the most used both for its speed of installation and for its ease of maintenance. You can choose to eliminate the old floor or even to lay the tile on top of the previous floor. The choice of flooring is vast and must adapt to the furniture already purchased, the needs of the family and the ability to perform good maintenance.
