Parquet is a type of flooring composed of short strips or blocks of wood forming a pattern. There are two main types of parquet: engineered wooden parquet and solid wood parquet. Engineered parquet floors comprise two or three layers of wood. The top layer is hardwood, and the layers below are also wood-based products. Solid wood floors are made of one solid plank of wood. Caring for a wood parquet floor is similar to caring for any hardwood floor. Daily care should include sweeping and dry mopping. Parquet should be cleaned only with a product designed for wood floors. The best parquet flooring provides a hard-wearing surface that will age gracefully. However, wear and tear will eventually get to be too much. Here a few key indicators of when it’s time to change your parquet.

Also, you should consider replacing your wooden parquet floors if their scratches cover a large area and they can not be fixed by sanding and refinishing.
