Parquet rarely depletes its entire life , more often it is simply removed and thrown away when it could still serve after restoration. Sometimes it is not enough to simply polish and re-varnish old parquet, it also needs to be repositioned. This is usually necessary in cases where you need to replace the plywood backing of the parquet, which has become unusable over time, or if you just want to refresh the drawing.
In any case, the technology is similar . To begin with, empty the room of all objects - do not rearrange the sofa as you remove the parquet. Then remove the skirting board by removing the nails with pliers, and knock out the strips that are inserted between the extreme parquet floors and the wall, prying with a screwdriver and hitting it with a hammer. In order to dismantle the parquet floors themselves, you will need a chisel. Insert it into the gap between the parquet floor Sanding and the base and gently tap it with a hammer until it separates. Gently fold the hardwood floors, immediately separating those that have become completely unusable. If the imperfections are small, they can be removed after installation using a scraping.
The base for the parquet is either a cement screed or plywood laid on top of it. In any case, the floor needs to be leveled. Use a self-leveling floor or cement if unevenness is present. If the plywood base looks solid and intact, it can be left if desired.
Parquet is laid with special glue. It can be purchased at any hardware store. This method is used for parquet without grooves. Laying parquet from the edge of the room is used for tongue-and-groove parquet. In this case, the extreme strips are attached to the base with self-tapping screws. Holes from fastening hardware are masked with plugs, and the first row itself serves as the basis for laying. At the same time, new parquet floor Sanding are simply hammered neatly into the grooves already laid in compliance with the pattern. On the internet, you can find many patterns for installing parquet.
When the installation is complete , it is necessary to fill the gaps between the parquet floors, if any, with mastic or special putty. After a few days, the Floor Sanding will be ready for scraping. The floor is then sanded and the final coat is applied. Old parquet will not only save you money during renovation, it will look great with proper restoration
