wooden floor – it’s beautiful and the right solution for any house, it retains heat, resistant to wear, it is relatively easy to keep in order and clean. Flooring – Eco-friendly, durable and completely harmless. Overall, it’s almost perfect floor covering! But what if you spent a lot of money on the floor with parquet and found that it is not combined with antique furniture that you were inherited from your aunt? And what about fashion, which dictates the need to lay the floor with bleached, “gray-haired” materials? Change the flooring? Is the output a bit better – tinted it!
The material traditionally used for toning – a stain that is fluid treatment of wood. After sanding and cleaning parquet dust cover dye it, which, while maintaining the texture of the wood, giving it a different hue. After that, the floor is covered with several layers of lacquer. The disadvantage of this method is quite significant: as heterogeneous structure of wood, impregnation stains, too, is uneven. Some areas of flooring may be darker than others, but on large surfaces such “patchy” pattern would look bad. Provide the same advance as a lead timber, and as the mixture will form on the surface, very difficult.
Change color of flooring and floorboard in several ways. Recently appeared on the market advanced products for toning floor. Unlike conventional morylok that instantly absorbed and dry up, the mixture hardens long and to work with them as long as necessary for quality and beautiful surface.
They put on a polished, cleaned from dust, grease and other possible contaminants floor surface, while waiting until mixture is absorbed, and then rubbed into the wood surface-grinding machine with polishing wheels for quick and even distribution. Surplus mixture leaving the floor clean and dry. Walk on the parquet can be, depending on the brand and manufacturer dubbing mixture over 4-24 hours.
It is very convenient that using these coloring system can be tinted large surface. On top of the stained parquet lacquers fits high wear resistance, creating on the floor protective film.
can be tinted flooring and special oil (eg, Floor Oil Strong from ARBORITEC or Markant of LOBADUR). Floor, stained with oil so different environmental performance and aesthetic appearance, does not require varnish as the oil in itself protects the wood from external influences and water. Oil is applied to the surface of the flooring with a thin layer with a brush or brush.
then rubbed into the wood using surface-grinding machine, remove excess product and leave the floor to dry. Basically, the procedure is no different tint from the above toning technology with professional mixes. The only difference tomu, in the case of oil this procedure must be repeated more than once. The number of layers depends on the oil absorbency of wood, and predict it in advance can only be approximate. Yes, deciduous woods absorb more oil than conifers.
Determine how many layers actually need can only be qualified master, and only one criterion – the tree should be saturated with oil, but not oversaturated. Using natural oils can add a classic parquet not only fashionable bleached appearance, but paint it in shades that mimic expensive types of wood such as wenge or walnut.
In the hallways and living rooms, where the load floor is large enough to color butter on top put one or two layers of colorless. If during operation flooring is damaged, these sites can mop up oil and process again. The boundary between refurbished and nevidremontovanymy strips initially allocated a little, but gradually zhladytsya.
