Wooden Parquet Flooring
Wooden parquets are floor covering material in the form of a prism that has a smooth surface, homogeneous thickness, and which is opened with a tongue and groove to be combined with each other on the side and head surfaces.
Wooden parquet is 17 and 22 mm in thickness according to TS 73 with a tolerance of 2%. Their width varies from 30-100 mm with a 5 mm difference; their length is between 200-1000 mm with a difference of 50 mm each. Wooden parquets are divided into three groups as 1st class, 2nd class and 3rd class according to their appearance.
As in every parquet, especially in the laying of wooden parquets, a very careful and detailed application should be made. These processes are the stages from the preparation of the floor until the finishing of the polishing process. An incorrectly prepared floor will prevent it from performing the expected performances of the parquet. Due to the wrong application, undesirable situations such as blistering and opening may occur over time.
Wooden parquet is laid on the blind floor and directly on the frames or by gluing on the screed. The floor should be prepared very well, especially before the parquets are attached to the screed.
Parquets are glued to the floor with white glue. Another method is that the floor is primed with parquet pitch, after the primed floor dries, the wooden parquets are laid by pressing the boiling parquet pitch. Then the laid parquets are treated with sand sandpaper with the scraper motor. After the scraper is applied, a coat of primer is applied and a coat of polish is applied. Polishing paste is made on the dried polish. There is a problem of color difference that occurs with scraper and polish after flooring in wooden parquets. Another way of applying wooden parquets is determined by hammering on the blind floor and directly on the frame. Undesirable situations such as swelling and opening in the bonding system are less common in the application with cadron. But this type of application is more expensive and the labor is longer and more difficult. The wooden parquet construction starts with a wooden coating that is nailed on the wooden frames of 5/5 cm. After the construction is completed, a layer is also called "blind flooring", like some building elements that cannot be seen because other materials are added on it. The function of blind flooring is to ensure that smaller wooden parquets to be laid on it can be nailed and applied in the desired motif. Between the wooden frames, 50-60 cm according to the length of the covering boards to be nailed varies between. The frames should be started close to the walls, but not in contact, so that the coverings do not overwork the console.
WOODEN MOSAIC PARQUET
Like the Roman mosaic, it is a floor covering consisting of 1 cm thick, 2x10 cm wooden pieces that are pasted on a sheet of paper to form squares in the workshop. Mosaic parquets do not have mortises and lamps like wooden parquets, so they are not interlaced. Mosaic parquets are less durable than wooden parquets because they are less thick.
Mosaic parquet application is generally in two types. In the first application, mosaic parquets glued to paper or netting are pasted with bitumen on top of a cement with a steel trowel. Then the paper is removed and the application is completed with processes such as varnishing and polishing the surface. Since the mesh will remain at the bottom of the ones that are glued to the net, the upper surface is released to the market with varnish.
Another application method; It is mostly applied in foreign countries in order to prevent impact sound. For this purpose, 8 mm thick perforated softwood fiberboard is chosen. A hot asphalt alum of 2 cm thickness is poured on it and the mosaic parquets are glued on top of the paper with a standard glue. The polish of the mosaic parquet flooring should be renewed at regular intervals. It should especially be protected from water.
WOODEN LAMINATE PARQUET FLOORİNG
It is made by laminating three layers of wooden material dried in accordance with the humidity of use in fully automatic drying ovens in a right angle to each other. Thus, it is minimized to be affected by water and moisture, which is the biggest problem of wood.
In recent years, laminated parquets with a total thickness of 14 mm have started to be produced in order to get more injured from the valuable trees used in parquet production and to minimize the work of the tree due to the laminated structure. These parquets, which have a thickness of 3.5-4 mm, of the valuable wood that constitutes the wearing layer, are produced with tongue and groove and in different widths. The substrate is generally made of white pine and relatively inexpensive trees. The parquets consist of three layers, with the fibers of the middle layer in the direction of the width of the parquet. Thickness of the middle layer forming the thickness of the mortise is 7.5 mm. The middle layer and the lower layer perpendicular to it consist of pieces in the direction of the width of the material. These coatings, which are presented to the market with finished surface treatments, are adhered to a very smooth cement screed with a special adhesive. Wooden laminated parquets are polished 6 times with an ultraviolet polish that is scratch-resistant and does not contain harmful additives, so the life of the parquet is longer. In addition, it does not contain dust, smoke and bacteria. This type of flooring is mostly 95, 125, 155, 195 mm wide; It is produced in lengths of 80, 120, 160, 240 cm.
Laminate flooring is a composite material made of four different layers. Starting from the top layer:
Top Protective Coating: It is a layer resistant to abrasion, scratches and impacts.
Decorative Layer: It is a special melamine-impregnated paper layer in various patterns and colors.
Hard Wood Fiber Board: It is made of water and moisture resistant MDF wood fibers and it is the carrier main body obtained by compressing these fibers with very special glues at high pressure and density.
Bottom Surface Coating: It is a special moisture resistant, protective melamine coating that keeps the laminate flooring balanced, flat and in form.
WOODEN PARQUET CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE
Vacuuming, wet and dry mopping can be done. It is polished 2-3 times a week with a non-slip polish. It is recommended not to use detergent for cleaning as it causes abrasion of the surface. 24 hours after the flooring application is completed, it should be wiped with a suitable cleaner or damp cloth. Any non-corrosive chemical can be used for routine cleaning. For stains and marks that are difficult to remove, solvents containing alcohol and acetone that do not damage the parquet and leave no traces can be used.
