The highest quality of wood
Block parquet is one of the simplest and, at the same time, the most popular solutions for laying parquet. It’s time to introduce the most important property of this option. Mosaic or Versailles style parquet delights us with a special splendour and luxury; traditional, double or triple herringbone guarantees less deformation, and block parquetry has yet another benefit to offer: it creates a particularly rigid and rugged flooring, which is more suitable for high friction or load. Given this quality, it remains only to conclude that block parquet is an excellent choice for spaces with lots of movement and furniture on the ground. Block parquetry retains a great initial look even if heavily used. In addition, damaged block are easily replaceable.
Installation of block parquet
Assembly of block parquet is a simpler process than that of other types of parquet, such as herringbone. However, block parquet also requires certain specific knowledge, so this work is only worth doing yourself if you are sure of your competence.
The main advantages of this option and the cases in which it is worth doing:

Despite resilience of block parquet, let’s not forget proper maintenance
The fact that block parquet itself tends to withstand higher loads better and retain a great look longer does not mean that you don’t need to take proper care of it. In order to achieve the very best result and enjoy the flooring for maximum amount of time, your efforts will be important.
You can do this by following these rules:
• use water or special tools designed to clean this type of flooring;
• use water and glycerine or water and vinegar: these combinations bring back the gloss for your block parquet;
• avoid dark spots by protecting the floor from excess water;
• damaged one or a couple of blocks? Unlike herringbone, the original look of block parquet can be easily restored by replacing the damaged blocks with new ones.
