  • - a drill with a diameter of 2 mm-
  • - Painting Scotch-
  • - medical syringe-
  • - wax crayons-
  • - rag-
  • - polyurethane adhesive-
  • - Anchor.



If the scratch is present in a small area, then find the defective areas Parquet. To do this, walk along it, memorizing the places of the creaking.


In the center of the creaking areas, mark the points for pumping the glue. Make notes at a distance of 15 cm from each other. Put on these places pieces of paint tape.


Take a drill and drill a hole 2 mm in diameter in the middle of the pasted pieces of tape. The depth of the hole should be equal to the thickness of the parquet board.
