Nowadays, more and more families prefer laying floor on ground. Even if house has underfloor heating, they love feel of floor. With a geothermal floor, it is also possible to achieve effect of thermal conductivity of tiles. But there is a situation that wooden floor sticks out easily, so why does it stick out? Is there a way to avoid this? Let me answer it for you!

Why does a wooden floor swell? It can play a preventive role!

First of all, let's look at causes of floor deformation. One of main characteristics of floor is that it cannot come into contact with water. No matter how waterproof floor is, wood material will warp and bulge when it touches water. The same is true for floor and door.

Actually, this means that floor is afraid of ebbs and flows. After soaking in water for too long, it will cause swelling and warping, so it will bulge and warp.

When laying floor, remember to leave expansion joints. If you don't leave them, or if you leave them too narrow, air will expand and contract with heat. If you don't leave enough, it will cause warping and floor will buckle and warp.

When transitioning between several rooms, floor must be bent. When weather and temperature change, floors of two rooms will stretch and squeeze each other, which can also lead to floor deformation. So it's best to add a buckle.

So how do you avoid this? The first floor to be laid must be dry. If it is an old floor that has been soaked with water before, please do not continue to use it. The wood floor that has not been soaked with water must also be dry, and water content must not exceed 12%. Keep floor clean before laying floor. If floor is not painted and not solid, spread plastic film because low option leaves seams. If floor is dirty, dust will accumulate between seams, which will affect effect of seams. Not easy to care for.

Also don't forget to reserve expansion joints on wall, don't forget to add buckles when dividing rooms and install air vents. Air circulation is also very useful for floor maintenance. If you accidentally splash water, clean it up as soon as possible. If there is a crawling baby who does not wear diapers in summer, then please put a mat on it~
