Parquet floor facts and history
The name comes from the Old French parchet (for more details see the Wikipedia article). Different wood types are used such as oak, walnut, lime, pine, cherry, and even maple and these are also used to vary the grain and colour of the material to give better pattern differentiation.
Cleaning an maintenance of Parquet floors after restoration
Once you've had your Parquet floor restored, how do you care for it? In every-day use, your parquet floor can simply be swept clean. Occasionally, a mop may be needed. One thing you should never do, however, is to vacuum clean your floor with any powered brushes, such as is found on an upright vacuum cleaner. The brushes can capture grit and effectively scour and scratch the surface, so you will wear it more quickly.
So, remember that if you have one of these beautiful floors that needs repair or restoration, just call us on 020 8368 5705, or use our online enquiry form and we'll be delighted to help.
