Parquet Flooring Repairs

Because parquet flooring is made of wood, it has the same vulnerabilities that wood has. This means that it can experience water damage and rot as well as other physical damage (although it’s typically very durable against things like impact damage and cracks). Fortunately, if your parquet flooring is damaged, you don’t have to replace the entire floor—thanks to the parquet flooring tiles.

If your parquet flooring is put together with tiles, then you can simply remove the tiles that are damaged and replace them. Before you install new parquet wood floor tiles, you will have to remove the adhesive from the subfloor. After you remove the old adhesive, you must put new adhesive down on the subfloor and then install the new tiles.

Some parquet floors are made out of blocks and not tiles. In this case, the replacement block may not be the same height as the rest of the floor. The block will need to be sanded down to the appropriate height using a belt sander. You will have to apply stain to the block as well as any surrounding areas where the sander stripped the finish.

Refinishing Parquet Flooring

If your parquet wood floor tiles have experienced a bit of wear and tear over time, such as fading caused by exposure to sunlight or scratches and scuffs caused by heavy foot traffic, you can refinish it in order to get it looking as good as new. You must also refinish your parquet flooring tiles after you have made repairs.

Refinishing parquet flooring does take a few steps – it’s not as simple as just refinishing the affected tiles or blocks. The following are the steps that have to be taken to refinish parquet flooring:

  • Prep the floor – The wax on the floor will need to be dissolved using a detergent as you clean the floor. If there are gaps between the tiles or blocks, you may need to fill them using glue.
  • Sand the floor – You’re going to need an orbital flooring sander to sand the entire floor. This will remove the old finish as well as any visual flaws, like scuffs and scratches.
  • Add the stain – A stain should be applied in sections, then left overnight to dry.
  • Apply the finish – Using a paintbrush to apply the finish is going to take a while, which is why a floor finish applicator may be a better idea.

Repairing and refinishing your parquet flooring is a time-consuming process that should be left to professionals who have the experience and know-how to do it properly. Attempting to do either yourself could result in further damage to your parquet floors.
