When decorating second-hand houses, do not blindly

  • Detail

With the continuous warming of second-hand houses, the decoration of second-hand houses has become a hot spot, and the decoration methods such as floor renovation and stone renovation have also become popular. Due to the low cost of floor renovation, many second-hand house owners intend to renovate all the old floors in their homes. However, according to experts, only solid wood floors, solid wood composite floors and bamboo floors with a surface thickness of 4mm can be renovated. In addition, local renovation will also cause the difference between the old and new floors, so consumers cannot renovate the floors blindly

the thickness of the surface layer needs to reach 4mm

floor renovation is to restore the old floor as new by grinding, puttying, painting, waxing and polishing the surface layer of the floor. Compared with buying the floor again, the old floor adapts to the indoor environment and has better stability; The renovation cost is also much cheaper

according to gaozhihua, chairman of the Flooring Committee of China Timber Circulation Association, not all floors can be renovated. There is a layer of aluminum oxide wear-resistant layer on the surface of the laminate floor. Renovating the floor will damage its wear-resistant layer, causing the floor to aggravate aging, so the laminate floor cannot be renovated. Only solid wood floors, solid wood composite floors and bamboo floors with a surface thickness of 4mm can be renovated. Because the surface layer of the floor will be polished off by 1-2 mm after several times of polishing. If the surface layer of the floor is too thin, the middle layer will be polished out, affecting the service life of the floor. Therefore, the thickness of the surface layer of the floor must be ensured to be greater than 4 mm. Consumers can learn the surface thickness of their own floor from the seller

Gao Zhihua denied the statement circulated on the Internet that "solid wood flooring needs to be renovated in five years". "It is not scientific to judge whether the floor should be renovated according to the service life. Some floors are well maintained and do not need to be renovated after five years," Gao Zhihua said. "As long as consumers are not satisfied, they can be renovated."

the renovation period takes 4 days

the reporter learned from the market that there are few special floor renovation companies, and most of them carry out this business are cleaning companies, and the price is generally 30-45 yuan/square meter. In order to ensure the quality of floor renovation, it is recommended that consumers invite professional supervisors to supervise the construction

floor renovation is divided into five steps: polishing, puttying, coloring, painting, waxing and polishing. When grinding, the grinder should use 40 mesh, 80 mesh and 120 mesh sandpaper in turn (the larger the mesh number is, the smaller the sandpaper particle is, and the less obvious the scratch left by grinding) to grind for three times, then scrape putty to level the floor, and then paint or color the floor. Because the texture of the surface layer of solid wood is natural, it cannot change the design and color, but can only adjust the depth of the floor color

all items in the house should be removed before renovation to ensure that the house is clean and dust-free when painting. The floor generally needs to be brushed with one coat of primer and two coats of finish paint. If there are still defects on the polished floor surface, it is necessary to brush the primer several times according to the situation. The next coat of paint can only be applied after the first coat of paint is completely dry. Therefore, floor renovation generally takes 4 days. In terms of construction technology, environmental friendly UV curing paint is mostly used for primer and finish paint, which does not contain harmful solvents. Consumers do not need to worry about the non environmental protection of floor renovation

the local renovation effect is not good

the overall renovation effect of the floor in a house is good, which can basically achieve the effect of the new floor, but the local renovation will cause the difference between the old and new floors. The longer the service life of the floor, the more obvious the difference between the old and new floors

damage, mildew and deformation may not be renovated. The moldy floor usually goes deep into the interior of the floor, and there will still be moldy spots on the polished floor surface; The deformation and damage of the floor cannot be remedied by grinding. If only a small part of the floor is damaged, moldy and deformed, the floor with the same color number can be replaced. If there is no floor with the same color number, you can choose the floor with similar color, and color it and copy it to minimize the color difference. If most of the floors have been damaged, or have mildew and deformation, it is recommended to buy again
