Answers to Frequently Asked Questions



Which floor should I choose? Oiled or lacquered?

Oil, contrary to lacquer doesn’t leave a coat on the wood but soaks deep into it’s structure, and doesn’t close the pores. It is particularly recommended to interiors where the floor is more exposed to chipping because it allows spot renovation. This kind of protection perfectly secures the floor from water penetration. Oil perfectly emphasizes and exposes natural beauty of the wood.Lacquer on the other hand protects the wood by creating a protection coat. It is highly practical in everyday use, cleans easily and requires practically no special care. The ingredients of the lacquers used to protect floors are based on ecological lacquers without any solvents or harmful substances. 


What climatic conditions should a room fulfill to be suitable for a wooden floor installation?

First of all it’s necessary to confirm the substrate moisture content before laying the floor. It’s generally considered that the concrete substrate should have a maximum moisture content of 2%, antyhryde substrate maximum of 0,5% and wooden maximum of 13%.If the moisture content is higher wooden floors cannot be installed because the humidity will penetrate the wood. Optimal climatic conditions should be respectively: 50-60% humidity and 18-25 degrees Celsius room temperature. Every professional flooring installer should check the above measurements before he begins his work. 


Is it normal that there are gaps in the wooden floors?

Wooden floors are a product that is 100% natural and so they live and work constantly. Wood is a hygroscopic material which means it absorbs humidity and as a result it changes it’s dimensions. Thanks to the priming coat from oak lamell the “work” surface layer is limited to minimum. Unfortunately it’s impossible to completely eliminate small gaps from showing up but it’s a completely natural effect and therefore not something we should worry about. Wood is alive and this is how it reacts to environmental conditions. 


Can wooden floors be installed on already existing floors?

Particleboard is a hygroscopic material (absorbs moisture) and it’s not recommended as a base to a wooden floor. It’s also not recommended to install a wooden floor on already existing floors. However you can install it on a waterproof OSB plates by first placing the plates (of appropriate thickness) and the wooden floor on top of them. The OSB plates must be screwed tightly so they remain fitted to the surface, then sanded so the glue can be equally spread 


Are wooden floors suitable to be installed while we also have underfloor heating?

Wooden floors can be installed while we also have underfloor heating. The perfect solution to that would be using a layered board with built in system that reduces “wood work”. You should also remember that wood is a very good thermal insulator and due to that, the thinner the wood, the better the thermal conductivity from the heated floor. However in the moment of cooling down or while it’s already cooled down the floor will not conduct the “coldness” from the cold floor so quickly. 


How to maintain wooden floors?

A wooden floors is a perfect decoration of every room. To keep her flawless and beautiful for many years we need to take special care of her. The most common mistake we make is using the wrong chemical agents that ruin wooden surfaces. You should also keep in mind the most important rule: wooden floors should be cleaned with a damp cloth. Not wet because the excess of water causes wood darkening which is a irreversible process.
