Three reasons for cracks in laminate flooring and

  • Detail

In daily life, the gap between the floors is too large, which really hurts the head. Only by understanding the causes of cracks in laminate flooring can it be avoided. Generally speaking, the main reason is the dry shrinkage and wet expansion of the floor. In terms of quality, it is caused by improper control of moisture content of the product itself. In addition, uneven ground, poor lock combination, uneven sizing, etc. are also easy to cause such problems

I. when installing the laminate floor, the joint of the moisture-proof film is not tightly adhered with waterproof tape. One side of the floor is above the moisture-proof film and one side is at the joint of the moisture-proof film, resulting in the channeling of moisture, which eventually leads to the lengthening of one side of the floor, and the length of the two long sides of the floor is different, resulting in triangular joints at the end of the floor. This situation has the following three characteristics:

1. The moisture content on both sides of the floor strip is inconsistent, generally with a difference of more than 2%

2. There is no triangular seam after the floor is installed, which occurs after a period of use

3. After the floor is disassembled, it can be seen that the moisture-proof film is not tightly adhered with waterproof tape

the probability of such problems is also high. Luoyang home decoration network reminds you that the moisture-proof film must be tightly adhered with waterproof tape to ensure the sealing and avoid this problem

II. Installation quality problems. During the installation of the floor, due to uneven force during installation, triangular gaps are generated on the floor. The characteristics of this kind of problem are:

1. There are triangular seams after the floor is installed, and there are seams on the side of the floor

2. After the floor is disassembled, the moisture-proof film has been tightly adhered with waterproof tape

3. The triangular gap and side gap can be eliminated after the floor is tensioned

4. The ground is uneven. When you step on the floor with your feet, the floor vibrates up and down, and you feel very uncomfortable, accompanied by a squeak

III. improper humidity control. If the room is uninhabited for a long time or the air conditioner is turned on for a long time, the indoor dry humidity is unbalanced, which may lead to the shrinkage of the wooden floor, causing cracks or arching

laminate flooring has won the favor of many consumers with its natural texture and high durability. However, geothermal heating users who have used laminate floors may find that cracks have appeared in many parts of the floor after a year. To solve this problem, consumers should apply solid wax to the floor

laminate floors often retain a certain amount of water inside. When the temperature rises in winter, the floor is prone to water loss and shrinkage, and the separation between floors will increase. At this time, applying solid wax to the floor will reduce the expansion of the seam. In addition to moisturizing the room during heating, it is also necessary to wax regularly, at least once every three months

the climate in winter is relatively dry. Try to shorten the window opening time and appropriately increase the humidity indoors, which is not only good for people's living, but also helpful for the maintenance of the floor. Many owners may think that if the outside air comes in in winter, the indoor temperature will drop, and the phenomenon of floor separation will naturally weaken

the real cause of floor separation is humidity, not temperature. In addition, the higher the air temperature, the more water in saturated state, that is to say, the humidity inside the house is higher than that outside in winter. At this time, changing the cold air outside will only make the room drier. Equipped with an air humidifier is very direct and effective. Experts revealed that the humidity of the room had better be controlled at about 50%

there are two points to pay attention to in winter floor maintenance. 1. Avoid using legless furniture, and don't put the glassware and porcelain containing water directly on the ground to prevent excessive local heating, floor damage or container rupture. 2. Because the surface of the floor is dry and easy to be damaged in winter, sharp objects should be especially avoided to scratch the floor surface in winter
