Parquet Wood Floors Common Questions
What is parquet flooring?
Parquet is a module made with multiple wood pieces that are assembled to create a pattern. Common misspellings include “parkey,” “parkay,” and “parket.” A lot of people associate parquet with fingerblock square tile. The most common and popular fingerblock parquet patterns are 12" x 12" and 9" x 9" parquet tiles. We offer this pattern in various configurations – see our M29 model. However, there are many parquet patterns available that you can select on this page.
How to repair water-damaged parquet flooring?
Water damage can ruin some old parquet tiles beyond repair. Typically, it is fingerblock parquet tiles like 9" x 9" or 12" x 12". Czar Floors can custom produce parquet tiles in similar wood and dimensions. Please note that the minimum order is 100 sq.ft. Both old and new floors need to be resanded together and possibly stained, trying to blend old and new wood. Initially, old tiles will look a lot darker from age and finish discoloration. After sanding and finishing, it should be pretty close to the new flooring.
How to clean parquet floors?
The first rule – to not use water mopping or steam cleaners. Vacuum as often as you would your carpet. Don't use rotating brushes - turn it off if possible. Use specialized wood floor cleaning products such as Bona Wood Floor Cleaner. Download the Czar Floors Parquet Care Guide.
