Vulnerable floor

vulnerable floorThe floors in the cottages, especially in those poorly maintained, have long been strained mainly neodvětrávanou moisture or biological pest activity (mold, fungi, decaying insects, etc.). If the influence of the environment adds even wear walking surface of the floor harga lantai kayu surabaya, you will find that the floor in the most vulnerable places of the cottage.

Houses are not used year-round, so that the internal structures are being exposed to the effects of adverse conditions, especially moisture, which is held in unventilated spaces. Failure to diagnose floors can glance – is trodden, can change shape, color, cracks may appear, eventually begins to flake off. Indicator is the change in surface flatness. In short, sooner or later the reconstruction of the floor in the cottage becomes unavoidable. To fulfill its purpose, it must be observed during renovation work processes and high quality products used in construction chemicals.

The substrate is the basis

This is true even if the quality of the floor. Status of old flooring is often inadequate, so after removing the old flooring is needed to thoroughly assess the condition of the substrate and then to decide on further action. During the tour of the substrate is controlled his maturity, moisture, consistency, separating layer in the form of old paints, waxes, dirt, oil etc. incoherent, cracked, wet or uneven surface requires specific solutions. Part of the revision of the areas designated for laying floor coverings should be checking flatness. It affects the glue consumption and quality of installation. Large deviations from the flatness cause higher costs in the form of additional application buffer layer. When analyzing substrate can call on experts. Some sellers of building chemistry offer free counseling and diagnosis.

Located where the base is in disrepair, it is necessary to replace the entire screed mix. Most commonly used for this purpose screed which is suitable for all kinds of floor coverings. In the case of newly laid cement screeds must reckon with the fact that for every centimeter of thickness comes about one week maturity, while the concrete must be aged at least 28 days. The minimum thickness of the screed should be 50 mm. When applied thicker fry, it is necessary to reckon with an increased cure time. Other options are the screed based on anhydrite. In this case it is necessary to abrade the surface layer of screed. After measuring the allowable humidity hygrometer should be treated primed. In addition to these documents usually we work with other documents, whether it’s wood, chipboard, Wood chip or cement floors. These structures must not contain moisture and may not even shrink or twist.

If it is possible to save the base, is not applied screed mix, but firms with suitable products based on silicates, epoxy or polyurethane. Cracks and fissures in the ground, it is recommended to glue together, or combine epoxy structural adhesive or a polyester resin. Cracks thus stabilize and prevent their copying to finish.

penetration of base

If you find after analyzing the substrate it is not in disrepair, can after removing the old roofing proceed immediately primed substrate. In this case it is not necessary to solidify and join and cracks. Choosing paint penetration depends on the type of substrate (porous, non-absorbent). U-absorbing substrate primer used to reduce and unify its absorbency before applying leveling compound. For non-absorbent substrate in turn improves the adhesion of subsequent layers to the substrate.

self-leveling screed

Uneven surface must face self-leveling trowel. When you choose it is necessary to take into account the future use of the space. On holiday cottages sufficient materials with common characteristics. Self-leveling screed after applying and drying is necessary to grind (according to the needs and the type of wear coverings).

bonding coverings

Selection of a suitable adhesive depends on the type of covering that will form the final layer of the floor. It is important that all building chemicals, forming a substantial part of the floor structure have been extremely tough and suffered a high point loads. If you plan to implement underfloor heating, must also adapt to the selection of construction chemicals technical and structural conditions. For bonding floor coverings, depending on their type, they are appropriate:

  • dispersion adhesives,
  • synthetic adhesives,
  • adhesives based on reactive resins,
  • adhesive based on synthetic rubber,
  • cementitious adhesive.

Wooden floors can be glued with dispersion solvent adhesives. Due to the lasting elasticity, it is recommended sticking with polyurethane adhesives. For carpets and PVC are often used acrylic dispersion adhesive.

Ensure a healthy floor

You will improve significantly renovated floors of their weekend and summer housing. The quality of the environment in which you ride a rest grows especially if you decide to give priority to environmentally acceptable products. Manufacturers are responsible approach to the environment focus its research on improving the environmental acceptability of its products.

Amount of construction chemicals that are incorporated during the reconstruction of the floor is important. Therefore it is recommended to use environmentally friendly products, systems certified EMICODE EC1. Products with this label are characterized by low emissions, show no harmful emissions or other volatile organic compounds. New floor in the cottage and the cottage will bring not only benefits but also feel good about contributing to a better environment.
