The Moisture of Engineered Wood Flooring

If you are going to install engineered wood flooring, moisture is a problem, and you should ask professionals to measure the moisture of flooring. Normally, the moisture content of engineered wood flooring is 12% or less. If you ignore this moisture problem and keep installing, the question is going to raise its ugly head and potentially causes significant problems. There are two key measures to remedy-vapour barriers and damp proof membranes.


What is vapour barriers? It is a damp proofing product, which is attached to an engineered wood flooring. However, the vapour barrier is not damp proof, and it is well worth remembering that they will only be effective in situations where moisture levels are slight.


Damp proof membrane is a waterproof barrier of Engineered Hardwood Flooring. This damp proof membrane can avoid damp or moisture problems in the future. A lot of the time, the thickness and quality of damp proof membrane will affect it efficiency and service life. This measure can stop the moisture for a long time.


It is essential that any moisture barrier was used in the installation. A ply subfloor between the barrier and the floor board that is sufficiently thick to make sure your nails or staples don't contact with the barrier. Engineered wood flooring is an investment for the along term and it would be shame to shorten your investment's life expectancy by ignoring a problem that you know exist.

MDF of engineered hardwood flooring will release formaldehyde, but it is still a cheap alternative to natural wood. Even high-end engineered wood floors may consist partly out of MDF to prevent the actual wood from changing shape. MDF is simply a manufactured sheet material made by bonding together wood fibres with glue. It is very versatile, used for floors and for all kinds of furniture applications.

Generally speaking, formaldehyde is from adhesive glue of engineered hardwood flooring. Formaldehyde levels are normally not more than 0.03 parts per million, which should not pose a health risk. However, inside homes or offices containing formaldehyde-emitting products levels may rise above this. Customers should pay attention that some engineered hardwood flooring contains formaldehyde.

The danger lies in MDF boards made outside the EU and imported here, which may have higher emissions. There is no real regulatory control although there are a number of third parties, not properly addressing engineered wood flooring and formaldehyde.

How is Your Flooring?

We have pointed out that the differences between Engineered Wood Flooring and solid flooring or engineered wood flooring and Laminate Flooring before. Today, we will compare the differences among of three.

As everyone knows that laminate flooring is cheapest between them because of its materials. Its surface is a piece of plastic with a photographic image of a wood grain, and the base board is MDF. The surface we call it as wearing layer, and it is also known to be scratch resistant, but non-repairable once damaged. The appearance of the wood grain is achieved in laminate but is repeated throughout the floor, making the laminate flooring look very unnatural and very cheap.

Solid wood flooring is the most durable choice. When you lay flooring, you should pay attention to that the timber will absorb any moisture present in the subfloors. Under the supervision of professional staffs, the solid flooring will achieve the warmth and charm effect. The thickness will range from 15mm to 20mm, with the benefit of sanding and refinishing the floorboards over several generations of use. Timber is natural product, so flooring is environmental protection. However, it also will expand to the relative humidity of where it’s installed. To accommodate for the floors’ seasonal changes and expansion gap between the floor and the wall is required.

Engineered wood flooring is made of a top layer of 3-5mm thick solid wood, and the base layer is plywood. This construction is more tolerant to changes in temperature and relative humidity. This kind of flooring is strength and stability, and you will achieve the same look and feel of solid wood flooring.

Why Engineered Wood Flooring Dominates New Construction and Remodeling

Engineered hardwood flooring is probably less than half the cost of installing a real hardwood floor and in fact maybe competitive with the cost of refinishing an existing flooring. It is more double than the carpet, but cost less than it. For this reason, engineered wood flooring become more and more popular.

Installation
For the engineered hardwood flooring, it doesn’t take more more money and time to install. Because the material is pre-finished, it eliminates several costly and time-consuming steps in the process.

Quality
Engineered hardwood flooring is finished in a factory under controlled conditions, so the finished is uniform-almost too perfect.

Maintenance
The makers of these products claim they require no waxing or regular maintenance. Just regular floor care products are needed occasionally to clean them. Unlike a hardwood floor, you don't need to mop them, and in fact, you really can't because of the water ingress issue. But as we shall see, it might not be a bad idea to wax these materials anyway.

Stability
Real hardwood floors can expand and contract with temperature and humidity and do funky things over the years. Engineered hardwood flooring, one the other hand, having differently oriented strands, tends to be more dimensionally stable, regardless of changes in humidity and temperature.

Why Select Grade Oak Flooring?

Selecting grading Oak flooring is a grade where only a select number of boards are deemed to be suitable. Boards included in the select grade are mainly clean, but with the occasional tiny knot and shake. This slightest bit of character helps to break up the floor, creating a slightly less uniform look than that of the prime grade. For those who find the knots of the character grade to be "too much", the select grade is often the perfect solution offering tighter knots. Like all of our grades, the select grade is hand selected to ensure that the grade you order, is the grade you get.

A popular look for those choosing the select grade is to choose a light finish such as Original Wood Environment. This particular finish is designed to provide protection, whilst not significantly changing the oaks natural unfinished color.

As with all of our grades of oak flooring, select grade is available as either a solid oak board or an engineered oak board as well as being available in a number of different widths.

While confusing at first, differences between laminate flooring and engineered hardwood flooring become quite obvious when inspected closely. While the flooring market has an abundance of both types of materials, in most cases solid or engineered hardwood flooring is a wiser, healthier and more environmentally conscious choice than laminate.

Waterproof Engineered Hardwood Flooring

Engineered hardwood flooring can be installed in commercial and residential projects because of it’s waterproof performance. This type of engineered hardwood flooring tends to have a fire resistance higher than the required standards, which is durable and anti-resistance.

In our everyday life, we can not avoid the water drop on the flooring, so the high standard of engineered hardwood is necessary. This also makes then mold and termite resistant as well. Engineered hardwood flooring is consist of HDF, plywood or real wood as the core while a layer of hardwood veneer is glued on the top.

Actually, there is no flooring is completely 100% waterproof. However, it is true that manufacturers have started offering waterproof engineered hardwood flooring, but getting them installed may not be an option for everyone. The same goes for regular engineered hardwood hardwood flooring than has an HDF core instead of a plywood one. It is possible to manually waterproof regular solid wood floors, but it is always better to get them waterproofed by a professional.

Engineered Hardwood Flooring VS Solid Hardwood Flooring

Even to this today, many people still have prejudice to engineered hardwood flooring. They would rather choose expensive solid hardwood flooring rather economic engineered hardwood flooring. Let’s compare solid and engineered hardwood flooring in order to better understand their pros and cons.


engineered hardwood flooring


At first, they are designed for beauty and durability, which make the homes lively. However, they still have different performance attributes. Engineered hardwood flooring is versatile and resilient flooring that can be installed in most areas of homes. But each board of solid hardwood flooring is made from a single piece of hardwood, which is not suitable for damp places such as  basement. It is more prone to shrinking or expanding based on humidity levels. The design of engineered hardwood flooring let it more stability.

Engineered wood floors can be more resistant to moisture and offer a bit more stability than solid hardwood. While no wood product can tolerate water laying on it, the increased moisture levels over concrete aren’t a problem for most engineered wood floors. Unlike solid hardwood, engineered hardwood can go over concrete under the right condition.

Engineered wood flooring is naturally cheaper than solid flooring.

How about the Eco-friendly? Solid hardwood floors are natural and eco-friendly because of its 100% wood. Generally speaking, glues and materials of engineered hardwood flooring is non-toxic and eco-friendly.

What is the Purpose of Skirting Boards for Engineered Hardwood?

No matter your level of flooring expertise, Vinyl flooring removal can be difficult if you don’t take advantage of the right tips,

Of course , there are professionals who can take on the vinyl flooring removal for you, but why not saving money by doing the job yourself ?

If you’ve decided to handle this project yourself, here are 4 vinyl flooring removal tips that you may pay special attention to :

1.  If you floor is more than 20 years old, test it before doing anything!
Decades ago, before vinyl flooring manufacturers knew how dangerous it was, they used asbestos in the backing underneath the floor.  If you try to rip up that kind of vinyl flooring , those fibers will get loose in the air and turn into a major health hazard.  Do have a professional take a look at it, before you tear up your old vinyl flooring.

2.  Vinyl flooring removal is different, that depends on what’s underneath
If there is a wood underlayment, the best thing to do is remove both at the same time.  Use a power skill saw to cut through the vinyl and plywood, but not the subfloor underneath.  Cut the floor and the plywood into 2’x2’ sections, and use a scraper pry each section up . Pliers might be required to get all of the wood staples out. When finished, sweep the area to make sure all of the wood dust and debris are gone.
But, if you need to remove vinyl flooring from concrete, your job will be much different, all you need is a sharp utility knife that can cut the vinyl into squares.  Then, pry up each section with a floor scraper.  A good adhesive remover is needed to get rid of all the glue underneath.

3.  Use a scraper with a long handle
You will need a heavy-duty blade to cut through all of the layers of vinyl and adhesive.  A longer handle gives you more leverage, that makes your job much easier.  Otherwise, you can wind up with an awfully sore back!

4.  Get a quality adhesive remover
Always remember, vinyl flooring removal means getting rid of the vinyl itself and the glue underneath.  Over time, that glue can harden to near-concrete strength!  You will need a special adhesive remover that breaks down the glue and turns it from a solid back into a liquid or paste.

Why Skirting After Floor Installation

Can you imagine how it will be ugly without skirting after floor installation? Just like you forget to wear socks when you put on a beautiful suit. Actually it is not only funny by looking without skirting, but also it is a protection to the floor and wall.

skirting for engineered wood flooring


Let's see why we have to put skirting after floor installation.


To cover the gap between flooring and wall,

As we know a certain installation gap has to be remained between floor and wall, do you know why? For floating floor, people don't use keels and no nails for installation, just joint floor panels by click system, so the floor is "Floating" on the ground after installation, and there is a certain dimension change from the floor in different season. In winter the air is very dry the wooden floor will release inside moisture and the size will become smaller, oppositely in rainy season, the moisture content will be higher in humid condition, so the floor will expand a little more. That's why we have to leave "expansion gap" between floor and wall after installation. The skirting is the perfect material to cover this gap, It's functional.

Wall protection,

In daily floor maintenance, the bottom of the wall is the place where usually be touched and easy to be damaged. So it is a good protection to install skirting at the bottom of the wall. It is not only for protection the wall damage, but also a protection to keep the wall clean, because the bottom of the wall is always be touch by our shoes or some other articles with dirty.

Decoration of transition,

Beside the practicability, the skirting is a good decorative material to transit from wall to floor. the design color of the floor is normally in dark and the wall is light color. We can make a transitional region to choose a middle light design skirting. or choose a total different color design to make a personalized design if the floor and wall is in a similar color tone.

Different kinds of skirting


From different material ,There are two kinds of skirting, One is wooden skirting, another one is plastic skirting. Wooden skirting is luxury and mainly use for wooden floor, and plastic skirting is normally use for PVC floor or some commercial area. From the price, the wooden skirting is much more expensive than plastic skirting, but plastic skirting is total waterproof. So to choose an appropriate products is very important.

What Kind of Flooring Do You Prefer

Do you have headache which kind of flooring you want to install in your new home? Do you have enough knowledge about different kinds of wooden floor? Herewith some floor information are shared, it might be helpful to you. Generally, there are four kinds of wooden floor in the market, They are: Solid hardwood floor, Three-layer floor, Engineered floor, and Laminated floor.

Solid Hardwood Floor
It is made by natural wood and has natural wood grain, It is the best choice for living room and sitting room. Because the material is natural wood, no glue and additive included, it is real eco friendly products.

It has good sound and heat insulation because of hardwood high density, Also solid wood can adjust and balance the room temperature in different seasons, in winter you don't feel very cold and in summer the temperature in the solid floor is 2-3 degree lower than ceramic tiles, so it is very comfortable to walk on it. Solid floor also can adjust Moisture content in the room, in dry season, the moisture inside solid wood is released to the room so the floor become dry, and in raining season, the solid hardwood can absorb a certain amount of moisture ,In this case the room moisture content is kept in a relative balance.

Since the solid floor has so much advantages , so the price is quite expensive than other floors, Also it requires higher level of installation and maintenance. You have to take more careful of daily maintenance like clean and waxing.

Three-layer Floor
Three layer flooring is very popular in European countries, it is made by three deferent wood layers cross pressed together, The top layer is the hardwood veneer whatever you like such as Oak,Teak,Walnut,... The core board is fast growing soft wood like pine and birch, and the back layer mostly is the rotary cutting poplar veneer. Three layer flooring has same surface effect as solid wood by more stability and more economy. Now this kind of flooring is more and more accepted by Chinese market.

Engineered Floor
Because the forest resource is over cutting and the cost of the hardwood is more and more expensive, engineered flooring is one kind of wooden floor with economical efficiency and eco friendly. It is made by multi layer plywood as core board, the main material is fast growing wood so we don't need to worry about the forest problem, The top veneer is 2-3mm hardwood has same wood efficiency as solid flooring. It is more stable than solid wood floor so it can be used on the ground heating system.

Laminated Floor
Laminated flooring is made by HDF as core board and decorative paper and wear-resistance paper as top layer, so it is real fake wooden floor. It has various of wood design because the top layer is decorative paper and top layer with special treatment the wear resistance is better than solid floor and engineered floor, by other hand the main material is HDF, the cost is much less than real wood itself. But the shortage is the formaldehyde problem because either the HDF and melamine glue which is the main blue for the laminate flooring, and the HDF is not water proof, so it is not introduced to humid environment.

The Rumors of Formaldehyde Degradation

Fruits and vegetables
Some people put some fruits and vegetables in the room, Yes, they smell very comfortable, but none of them can degrade formaldehyde, The fact is the pollution is covered by the sweet smell of fruits.

A basin of water
People knows formaldehyde is soluble in the water, so they assumed formaldehyde could be degraded by a basin of water in the room. But the fact is formaldehyde is very difficult to be absorbed by water in static status.

Burning of candles
Formaldehyde is an unstable matter, once the candle burning, some of formaldehyde transfers into formic acid, and the oxygen is reduced by the burning. By other hand ,other unhealthy matters will be released by the burning of candles. Of course it is a romantic time with the candle light in the night, isn't it .

OK, Let's back to the topic how to take correct action of formaldehyde degradation:

Ventilation
Ventilation is the most direct and economic solution to reduce the formaldehyde and other VOC after home decoration. It is very useful at the beginning. But since the VOC is coming out constantly, it needs long time for ventilation.

Physical Absorption
Activated carbon is the best physical absorption material to formaldehyde, toluene, TVOC, and other toxic substances. The principle of absorption is there are many micro holes in the carbon, That's why the toxic substance can be absorbed. But the activated carbon has to be put in sunshine for exposure after some time's using to release absorbed toxic substances.

Plants Absorption

To put more green plants in the room is an aux solution to reduce the VOC after home decoration, But please remember that the absorption of plants is very limited, It's just considered for not too bad conditions, Otherwise the plants will be killed in very bad pollution.


Chemical Absorption
Nowadays there are many formaldehyde degraded products in the market, The representative is  "Photo-catalysis" products. The most of the toxic including formaldehyde and benzene can be decomposed into oxygen and carbon dioxide under the lighting.

Anyway, There are both advantage and weakness from above solutions for formaldehyde degradation. The best way is to keep your doors and windows open after home decoration, and put activated carbon and green plants in the room and move them to sunshine regularly.

Let's see below conditions what will cause the noise:

The Quality of Flooring Itself
Dimension stability is the main issue of floor noise, For solid wooden floor, the stability after installation is related to certain moisture content as well as Engineered Flooring, a certain moisture content is very important, For laminated flooring, the dimension will be changed due to the HDF is swelled if the HDF quality is not even enough. So you have to request supplier to provide related products test report to guarantee, It's better to send samples to lab for testing if condition allowed.

The Incorrect Installation Method
Before floor installation, the ground self leveling is requested, For wooden floor, the keels should be no more than 30cm from each line and the top level high deference should be no more than 0.1cm, the floor panels are nailed on the keels, the gap of each nail is no more than 30cm. For floating floor installation method, there are EVA foam as underlayment under the floor, Be sure there should be full spread underlayment before installation. An expansion gap from the wall edge is requested ,it should be no less than 10cm from each side. If flooring cover area more than 50sqms, An expansion line is necessary to separate the big area, there are many profile can be consider to cover the gap.


Engineered Flooring


The Wrong Maintenance

People used to clean ground with wet mopping, but be sure the mop can't wet too much to drop the water into the gap of the floor, otherwise the floor will get swelled by water dropping inside.


Temperature is also the reason makes flooring dimension unstable, In winter season, people like to keep room warm by ground heating system or air-conditioner. But room temperature changing often will make floor expanding and shrinking frequently.

How to avoid noise problem from wooden flooring? Since we have seen above reasons for the floor noise, it is not difficult to find solution to avoid this problem.

First of all is to choose good quality flooring, we'd better take care of the grade of wooden floor, the main quality standard should be followed strictly, Also we can request supplier to provide necessary quality certificate.
