Parquet is real natural wood at its most beautiful and unique. As a material of interior design, wood is an environmentally friendly and ecologically durable option, providing character, warmth, and comfort for every room in your home. A real wood floor will give any interior designer a timeless aesthetic, as well as a long-term partnership in the most important place of your life – your home. Trends change, but the charm and value of genuine wood as flooring material remain unchanged.

The Parla parquet is unique on the market, due to its durability and dimensional stability. Parla parquet boards consist of three overlapping layers, each made from real wood, strengthening each other. The unique structure has been designed for durability, and especially so that the wood will expand as little as possible. The dimensional stability of the parquet boards is also influenced by the moisture characteristics of the timber, which have been adjusted to optimal levels during the manufacturing process. Locking tongues and grooves are situated on four sides of the floorboards, making installation easier and quicker. The floorboards will be installed as a floating floor, the boards will become interlocked thanks to the tongue and groove system. In order to guarantee abrasion resistance, the surface of the parquet boards has been treated with a safe and innovative wax oil or lacquer.

Installation

Parla parquet is installed floating, and the floor is ready for use immediately it is laid. The parquet boards are laid loose on the subfloor and fixed togerther by 5G locking system. The profile of locking tongue and groove of parquet is planned in a way that parquet boards can be easily combined with each other. Parla parquet can be installed on a subfloor with underfloor heating.

Care of the lacquered parquet

Remove sand and dust from the parquet with a vacuum cleaner or brush. If necessary, wipe the floor with a well-wrung cloth or mop. Use lukewarm water, to which can be added a detergent intended for floor cleaning, and follow the directions for use of the detergent intended for cleaning of the parquet floor. The use of strong detergents is to be avoided. Wax or polishes containing wax must not be used.

Care of the wax oiled parquet and wooden floors

Regular vacuum-cleaning and mopping prevents dirt from sticking to the parquet surface. When required, it is possible to order a comprehensive maintenance set for wax oiled floors from Timberwise. The set contains the following: OSMO Color Wash and Care, cleaning and conditioning wax spray and tinted or clear wax oil for correcting small scratch marks.

  • Avoid using strong detergents, since they can dissolve the protecting wax oil or lacquer layer on the parquet.
  • Avoid using excess amounts of detergent, since otherwise a detergent layer will accumulate on the surface of the parquet and collect dirt.
  • Remove stains immediately.

If the surface of the wood floor has been damaged, for example, when moving furniture, you can apply OSMO Color wax oil on damaged areas. Detailed instructions >> for correcting scratch marks and larger damages.

Removal of stains

Wipe up all spills immediately. Stains which cannot be removed by wiping require different cleaning agent.

Type of stain -> Cleaning agent

  • Fruit, berries, juices, milk, cream, soft drinks, beer, wine, coffee, tea -> synthetic detergent
  • Chocolate, grease, oil, shoe polish, heel marks, tar, pitch -> mineral turpentin
  • Typewriter ribbon, dublicating wax, correction fluid, ball-point pen, ink, lipstick -> denatured alcohol
  • Blood -> cold water

Repair of a parquet floor

In case where surface of the floor is worn down or scratched, it can grinded or sanded and then surface treated again.

Three layer structure

All of the components of 14 mm thich Parla parquet board are real wood. Parquet board is composed of three mutually supporting layers.The construction is developed durable and particularly in a way to counteract warping. The dimensional stability of Parla parquet board is improved also by controlling the moisture characteristics optimally in the manufacturing process.

The hardwood surface of the parquet board mainly highlights the natural beauty of wood and its outstanding and individualistic design. The surface has an influence on durability and life of parquet floor. Softwood from Nordic forests make the core of the Parla parquet. In the north wood grows slowly and sturdily which makes wood extremely good quality and hard-wearing. The grain in the middle layer is vertical improving the parquet´s durability and preventing shape changes. Bottom layer gives support to the entire stucture. Professionally manufactured parquet won´t warp or bend.


Oak

Oak is among the world's oldest and most popular timbers used in interiors. Its hard and heavy wood is excellent in application requiring great strength and durability. Oak´s yellowish-white sapwood is readily distinguishable from the darker heartwood. The grain pattern is clear and readily observable on a dressed piece of wood. A floor made of oak-wood may become a little darker as a result of the impact of sunlight. We import our oak-wood from Europe.

The uniform top layer of the parquet board is 137 mm with slight bevels in the edges to create the plank-look to the floor. Length of the parquet board is 2195 mm and thickness 14 mm.

Surface treatment

A surface treatment brings out the unique beauty of the wood, and is bound to the surface of the floorboards. The surface treatment makes the floor durable, and easy to clean. Parquet boards are finished with effective and safe lacquer. The lacquer protects surface of the parquet from scratches. It inhibits germ development by not having them a breeding ground in the surface of the parquet.

When choosing the surface treatment agent, we have also considered its safety and environmental impact, in addition to the traditional dirt- and moisture-resistance, and abrasion resistance. This surface treatment agent meets strict European norms, as well as the Finnish M1 norms (highest category) of the emission classification for building materials.
