Giving Your Parquet Floors a New Life

Parquet flooring is a popular choice for bedrooms among Singaporeans. It is classic and durable with low maintenance required. If regularly taken care of, your parquet floors can look sparkling brand new.

Read on to find out how to make your parquet look fresh and clean.

1. General Maintenance

Daily sweeping or vacuuming is required to keep dust and debris off your parquet floors. Cleanliness is important in making your floors look new. Mopping also helps to maintain the floor's look. It is paramount that you do not use a mop that is too wet as too much moisture can damage the wooden parquet flooring instead.

To make your parquet last longer, use a floor rug. This will help add a protective layer for your floor. Also, parquet can be easily damaged by heavy furniture. Ensure that you do not drag furniture across your parquet floors as this will easily leave scratches.

2. Moisture

As mentioned above, use a lightly damp mop or cloth to mop your parquet floors to limit the amount of moisture you are exposing your floors to. If there are any spills, quickly dry the area as well to prevent the moisture from seeping into the floors. Moisture can easily damage your parquet floors, causing discoloration from high exposure.

3. Sanding

Engage in a professional to provide sanding services for your parquet floors. This form of maintenance is only recommended if your parquets flooring have surface scratches. If there are any deep damages to your floor, we recommend to replace the tile entirely.

For sanding, the top surface of your solid wood parquet flooring is sanded away to reveal a fresh and smooth surface. Filler is then used to fill any gaps in the flooring. This will give your floors a new lease of life as the damaged surface will be sanded off to give way to a new, perfectly smooth surface.

4. Varnishing

After sanding, the parquet flooring can be sealed with a varnish. The varnish will seal the smooth surface and give your floors a shiny new look.
