Solid wood flooring is made from one solid piece of wood. This piece is cut straight from the tree trunk, and then with the help of a machine it’s made into a plank.

The natural appearance of hardwood flooring gives warmth and personality to any room in the house. Thanks to the production and finishing technology, it can also be mounted in rooms with high humidity. Also, due to the hardness and increased durability of exotic essences, outdoor flooring can also be installed. The finish is done without affecting the natural appearance of the wood. There is currently a rich range of solid wood flooring. Besides indigenous essences – beech, oak, cherry, maple, walnut – there are parquet floors of various exotic essences from Asia, Africa, and South America. Exotic essences have special textures and colours. They can be used both for the production of solid wood and wood flooring. As for solid wood flooring, there is the finished and the unfinished one.

Installing the solid wood flooring

You always need to acclimatise your new floor. The material can expand with heat and dampness. That is why we recommend that the solid wood flooring to be held  for a few days in the room where it will be installed.

The subfloor must be dry, cleaned, leveled and free of any dampness. One way to install the solid wood flooring is the glued down method. This method involves using a bonding agent, adhesive or glue. The bonding agent is put directly on your subfloor before installing your solid wood flooring.

Clean and maintenance

The solid wood floor is very easy to clean and maintain. We advise you to avoid furniture polish as it can leave a slippery residue and any products that are abrasive or contain ammonia as they can damage or scratch the solid wood.

You can use a soft bristle brush to remove dirt and dust. Or you can use the vacuum but with the right attachments. Using a special wooden floor cleaner may help and a PH neutral wooden floor cleaner would be perfect. Try to clean the solid wood floor in the direction of the grain. For a wet clean, please use a microfibre mop and make sure that the mop is wrung out.
