Parquet is a very beautiful, durable and reliable coating.
To ensure that its appearance remained ideal for as long as possible, it is necessary to provide proper care for the parquet.
Humidity is the main enemy of the parquet board. Its level in the room should be within 45-60%, and the air temperature should be 18-25C. In rainy weather, you can not open the windows, and so that the pool does not collect puddles of water, it should not be washed with a very damp rag. If water can not be avoided on the floor, wipe it with a dry cloth immediately.
Often a parquet board is covered with oil orWaxing. This protects the material from dirt and moisture, since the consistency of oil and wax penetrates inside the wood, but a strong protective film does not form on the surface, so scratches or other traces of mechanical damage can appear on the floor if the parquet is not used properly.
Wet cleaning of the parquet with oil coating should be carried out using special means. They are recommended to dissolve in water, and a damp cloth should be squeezed very well.
Floor with a wax coating can not be washed. Only dry cleaning is permissible. This is due to the fact that waxed floor can change color due to alkaline reactions occurring when in contact with soap solutions and other detergents.

Their neutral composition will not lead to the fact that the surface of the parquet will deteriorate. You just need to remember that parquet can not be washed with very hot water.
If there is a need to clean the parquet with a vacuum cleaner, you need to have a special attachment with a felt that will rub the floors without leaving scratches.
Even with the most careful care parquet can wear out. In this case, grinding and applying a protective coating is recommended. This will help to remove scuffs, microcracks and other defects.
