Luxury of real wood flooring

Parquet block flooring is made from either solid wood or engineered wood.  The beauty is that you have the luxury of a real wood product.  Even with engineered parquet blocks, the surface is real wood.  It is almost impossible to tell the different between solid parquet and engineered parquet once it has been installed.


Easy to look after

Once your parquet block flooring has been installed, you will want to make sure it is kept looking fresh and new.  The best thing to do is adopt a regular cleaning routine.  This should consist of sweeping on a daily basis and cleaning with a wooden floor spray mop when needed.  If you would like to find out more about cleaning your floor and keeping it scratch free, have a look at our Wood Floor Care and Maintenance Guide.
