The Top 5 Popular Parquet FAQs

During the late 1600’s when earth and concrete flooring was common in the homes of commoners and marble slabs were the preferred flooring for the wealthy, a new type of flooring was introduced in Versailles, France. The patterns in which the pieces were placed was called ‘parquet‘ and you would often find only a few professionals who had the skills to install them. Because of the expertise and time involved, parquet floors were extremely expensive and only appeared in the homes of the very wealthy. 
Fast forward to today and we have an affordable solution which doesn’t compromise quality or beauty. Welcome to one of our favourite worlds – the world of Quick-Step floors. 

Say hello to the world of Quick-step 

Whether you prefer luxury vinyl tiles & planks, the authenticity of real wood flooring, or the practical benefits of a laminate floor, you will certainly find a floor that perfectly fits your needs and style and with a designer in your corner it will be as easy as ABC. 

We’ve collected some of the most popular 5 FAQs to support our loyal Bdesign followers, clients and friends. Let’s get started.

1. Can I use Quick-Step Parquet in combination with underfloor heating?

Yes, Quick-Step Parquet  (with the exception of ash and beech) can be combined with ‘low temperature’ underfloor heating. However, it is absolutely necessary to get expert advice before kicking off your project. Let your designer guide you!  

2.How should I clean and maintain my Quick-Step floor?

Like it or not a floor gets dirty, there’s no way around it. Luckily, (and this is one of the prime reasons why we love it) Quick-Step floors are super easy to maintain. Check out these tips that will make cleaning time fly by. 
  1. Vacuum your floor thoroughly. You may wish to use a parquet broom to avoid scratching.
  2. Fill one of the buckets with one cap of Quick-Step Clean per 5 litres of water. The other bucket should be filled with clean water. This’ll let you rinse out your mop or floor cloth.
  3. Mop the floor. Rinse the mop and repeat. 
  4. Presto! Floors fit for a king and queen! 

3.How do I prevent scratches on my laminate floor ?

All Quick-Step laminate floors are designed for a lifetime of living and playing. Quick-Step floors are very scratch resistant and are perfectly suited for playing children. Infact, Quick-Step floors are up to ten times more scratch-resistant to micro-scratches than floors without ‘ScratchGuard’. Of course, understandably, deep(er) scratches, e.g. caused by dust, sand or dirt stuck under shoes, can still occur.

4.Can I use Quick-Step laminate in my outdoor area?

Yes, you can! We’ve designed some amazing outdoor areas with quick-step laminate as one of our finishing touches. Here’s a tip – Install a suitable Quick-Step underlay under the floor and provide large expansion gaps so that the installed floor can freely move under the skirting boards. Great idea aye? Don’t stress, let your designer take control of your project or ask the friendly team at RLiving to share more insight. 

5.How can I repair a damaged laminate board?

Yes a Quick-Step repair kit does exist! Truthfully, there might be cases when a board is damaged so badly that you’ll have to replace it. You might think that removing a board from the floor isn’t the easiest task, so here’s a video that will guide you step by step. 
Parquet is a sophisticated and elegant design that has stood the test of time and admittedly, it’s a favourite with the BDesign team.There’s more good news – if you’re on a budget, as long as you get the floors right, your space will still have a designer look  – so really, investing in parquet makes loads of sense.
