Care and renovation

Why do we use scraping?

 

  1. A thick usable layer with spruce or pine core and plywood can have deep damage, the porous oak is simply crushed.

  2. Dirt and moisture deeply penetrate a thick damaged utility layer through damage and unsecured side edges of the floor (moisture, water, dirt deeply penetrate into the pores)

  3. Flooding and moisture of the floor with a thick usable layer cause permanent irreversible multidirectional warping (wood has memory)

  4. The so-called HARD varnishes chop off from the surface in the event of impact and in the case of height differences between the boards (formed on damp or over-dried floor) - the varnish is chopped from the side edges - the floor will never wipe out in the middle of the board

 

We avoid all the above problems and scraping by using the flooring by Diamett

Renovation of varnished floorings produced by DIAMETT

We recommend the Swedish BONA system - tested worldwide

RENOVATION WITH THE ONE-DAY BONA SYSTEM

  1. Thoroughly clean the surface with the Bona Power Scruber machine with the use of Bona Deep Clean Solution or Bona Deepclean

  2. Using brushes or abrasive papers, remove traces of floor surface consumption

  3. Vacuum the floor very thoroughly to guarantee the proper adhesion of the new varnish

  4. Apply varnish on the prepared surface.

  5. Start using the floor after the varnish has dried

RENOVATION OF MECHANICAL DAMAGE WITH HARD WAXES

In the case of very severe impact with sharp objects, points mechanical damage may arise even in a very hard flooring by Diamett

Use flexible hard waxes to repair this type of damage.

 

  1. The spot of damage should be cleaned, vacuumed, possibly also degreased and loose fragments should be removed

  2. Choose the right color of hard wax

  3. Use a device for heating hard waxes, fill in the damage on the surface

  4. The right color is obtained by mixing the base colors by adding a transparent filler

  5. Remove excess wax with a spatula

  6. Degrease the fragment to be repaired

  7. Apply a thin colorless layer of varnish

Very often the damage is small and only at points

One of the very interesting ideas that even the most renown flooring brands use is simply making a beautiful knot at the spot of damage.

RENOVATION OF OILED FLOORINGS

STAGES

  1. Thoroughly clean the surface with the Bona Power Scruber machine with the use of agents for washing oiled floors

  2. Vacuum the floor very thoroughly to guarantee the proper adhesion of the new oil.

  3. Apply the first layer of oil about 35ml/m2 to the prepared surface

  4. After 6 hours, apply the second layer of varnish about 20ml/m2

Start using the floor after the 12 hours

Care for oiled floor

Freshly oiled wooden floors for seven days from the end of oiling should be only dry-cleaned, i.e. using a soft hair broom or vacuum cleaner with a brush tip.

For the first week, you should not lay carpets on them so that the oil can oxidize evenly, and therefore harden (pieces of furniture, if they stand on legs, can be placed on the floor after about 48 hours).

The first washing should be done after at least a week, using dedicated agents for oiled floors, e.g. linseed soap. It is best to choose agents of the type that the producer of the oil we selected recommends.

Caution! if carpets are placed to early on the oiled floor, it can contribute to the formation of stains at the spot in a different color than the rest of the floor.

In order for the floor to meet our expectations, you should oil it regularly - for the first years every six months, later on - less and less often. Oil, when entering the pores of wood fibers protects them against biodegradation, drying out, eliminating minor scratches (fibers swell)

Dedicated protective agents such as oil soap, care paste or care oil are also helpful in the care of floorings covered with oil.

For daily care of oiled wood, sweeping or vacuuming is enough. All floorings, including the oiled ones, should be washed regularly. We can recommend the use of water with the addition of soap for floors or oil soap, which not only washes, but also produces a renewable protective layer on the floor. If the floor is very dirty, it should be thoroughly washed with a strong cleaner, which effectively dissolves dirt, fat and old soap remains from the outer surface of the wood, and then with oil soap.

The floor exposed to a heavy load should be subjected to additional treatment with care oil or care paste, which refresh and renovate it. Both finishes are also recommended when the floor after prolonged use begins to matte or go grey.

All care products are available in white and natural colors. The first of them are dedicated to floors covered with white oil, while colorless - to natural and colorful floors.
