How to clean parquet: guide to cleaning wooden floors

When deciding to use parquet as a flooring in your home, you need to be aware of all the maintenance and cleaning work that it will have to undergo during its existence. A wooden floor, in fact, requires constant care that must be carried out daily to prevent the parquet from deteriorating too quickly. Failure to pay attention will cause the floor to curl, become dirty and rise. In this guide we will see how to clean the parquet , which are the best products to use and which natural methods we can apply to have a floor always impeccable.

The basics: why is it important to have a parquet that is always clean?

Parquet is not like all other types of flooring, it is special from every point of view. In fact, wood is a living material that is constantly evolving. Just like humans, it ages, changes color, changes over time, “suffers” from heat, cold and humidity. For this it needs more attention, it is certainly not something we can install, use every day and abandon to its destiny.

Cleaning it, therefore, is important because it allows us to keep it (as far as possible) always young and at the maximum of its possibilities. After the initial expense, which is usually quite conspicuous, not cleaning it and treating it properly would be a pity both in terms of beauty and in terms of convenience. On the contrary, devoting the necessary care to him daily allows us to make the most of him by keeping him beautiful and healthy.

What do you risk if you don’t care for the parquet?

Besides the inconvenience of having a visibly dirty house (and you know, a dirty floor makes the whole environment look worse than maybe it actually is) there are other small changes that take place in the wood, often not immediately visible but which in the long run cause the wood to break or be seriously damaged. A wooden floor abandoned to itself is liable to swell or shrink , causing visible damage, such as the lifting of the planks or a too accentuated presence of leaks and annoying gradients.

An unavoidable change for any parquet, but which can still be treated with special products to limit damage, is oxidation. Wood, in direct contact with sources of light and heat like the sun, establishes a process that leads it to change its color. It works a bit like tanning: the part of parquet exposed to the sun, instead of hardening like we humans do, becomes clearer. 

This difference becomes visible especially if we have heavy carpets or furniture. Moving them we will immediately realize that the wood, in those areas, has a different color and looks visibly newer. There is nothing to worry about and it is a perfectly normal phenomenon. You just need to be aware of it and start knowing that the wood will undergo this natural modification process.

Kitchen parquet: guide, tips, ideas

The parquet combined with the kitchen always arouses some doubt. We question its resistance to falling objects and especially to water, which could accidentally end up on the wood and damage it. Many, in fact, are still convinced that the wooden floor cannot be laid in the kitchen (as well as in the bathroom) due to any accidents that may occur. In this article we will see why this belief is wrong and many tips to choose the right parquet for this particular area of ​​the house.

Kitchen parquet: the complete guide to avoid mistakes

The parquet, as previously suggested, can be laid throughout the house and potentially in any place. Some rooms, however, are less problematic than others, but this should not scare us: just choose the essence carefully and follow some suggestions.

First of all we must aim for the highest quality of wood. Poor parquet has very little chance of surviving the huge use of the kitchen. Another essential aspect is resistance: the essence chosen must have certain characteristics that allow it not to be damaged too much with wear and to better face the accidents that can occur. In particular it must be very stable , therefore not prone to deforming with water and humidity, and resistant to bumps and scratches of any kind.

The two best essences ever for this purpose are:

  • The teak , one of the most weather-resistant, also used for outdoor paving. Besides being stable and very resistant, it is also waterproof and very hard; perfect to resist falling objects, water splashes and the risk of falling fat or oily foods.
  • The wengè , which shares characteristics very similar to those mentioned for teak and is very durable and suitable for the kitchen.

These two, however, are not the only essences that can be used. Among the various possible choices we can also opt for iroko , oak and merbau . At the time of purchase, for greater security, we can ask our trusted retailer for advice specifying well that the parquet is intended for the kitchen. An expert will surely know how to direct our choice to the most adequate essence also as regards our aesthetic taste.

Another point to think about is the choice between solid wood and plywood . Regarding this point, the experts often have conflicting opinions. In principle, however, the majority agrees on the choice of the multilayer considered more stable and less prone to deformation due to the various agents that may appear in the kitchen.

Particular attention must also be given to the thickness of the wooden strips . The kitchen, in fact, is the most trodden area of ​​the house and the parquet must be thick enough to withstand continuous use.
