Taking care of woodblock flooring in Liverpool

Woodblock flooring in Liverpool is becoming increasingly common as more Liverpudlians realise the beauty of the flooring, which is made up of several blocks of attractively arranged wood.

If you have chosen to have parquet flooring in your home, then no doubt you too made the decision because you found it to be the most attractive flooring option out there. If that is the case, then you will want to do everything you can to ensure that your woodblock flooring continues to look fantastic for years to come.

Here’s a guide to doing just that:

Keeping your woodblock clean

Like all wooden floors, it pays to keep woodblock flooring clean. In the first instance, this should mean that you sweep and vacuum your floors on a regular basis. This will pick up crumbs and dirt that would otherwise get lodged in the cracks of your floor, making them look unclean and unkempt.

Polish your parquet

It is also a very good idea to polish, or employ someone to polish your woodblock flooring on a regular basis. In order to do so, you will need to purchase a polish which is suitable to use on parquet floors that have the same finish as yours. This will ensure that you do not damage your flooring by polishing it.

You should also take care to ensure that you don’t use abrasive materials to polish your floor, using only soft cloths, mops, and vacuum cleaners that are suitable for use on hardwood flooring. This will help to prevent scratches.

Sanding

When your floor starts to show more signs of wear and tear than you would like, it may be necessary to strip it back by first carefully sanding it, then resealing it with the appropriate sealant. You can then use a buffing machine to ensure that the sealant is evenly spread across the surface area of your floor.

If you are unsure about doing this yourself, there are lots of people who offer their services for professional floor sanding, and they will be able to help you improve the appearance of your flooring in no time.

By taking these simple measures on a regular basis, you can ensure that your woodblock flooring never looks less than perfect and that everyone who visits your home will be wowed by your excellent taste and style.
