Contemporary conforming to all quality standards, one of the most durable flooring - laminate flooring, or laminate. Despite the relatively high strength of the coating, there is always the possibility of damage during use. For example, moving furniture or dropping something heavy, you can leave on the laminate scratches, chips, cracks. There is a perception that to repair laminate flooring is possible only through dismantling to a fault. Sometimes it is really necessary in case of serious defects, but you should be aware that when removing there is always the possibility of damage to more straps than I have at the moment.
In case of deep scratches or chipping, purchase a repair kit to repair laminate, which is filled with the resulting damage. If you find such a composition is not possible, purchase a acrylic sealant. It is desirable to have two colors, it is necessary for tinting to any color. Using the instructions for use printed on the package of your chosen part, prepare the mixture, pick color, fill in a chip or deep scratch with a rubber spatula. Remember that when dry acrylic sealant darkens.
Seal cracks and deep cracks is possible with a solution of plaster and sawdust. Mix one to one usual construction the sawdust with the gypsum in a small amount of clean water. You have prepared the repair composition on density needs to be like toothpaste. Prepare a small leaflet-bar size crack, if sealed cracks larger than 5-6 centimeters. Insert the liner into the crack and then do the restoration.
If you have filled laminate with water, which caused the swelling of several parts, replace them with new ones or spend a reconstruction of the form of the old planks. To put in order the damaged planks, put them on a perfectly flat surface under a fairly heavy load. On average, full recovery of detail is needed 5-7 days. It is then possible to perform inverse Assembly.
In the case of critical damage to the plank of laminate flooring need to be replaced. Carefully cut out the damaged fragment, insert a new one and stick it.
If the laminate is damaged in the relocation of furniture and covered with scratch, purchase in the shop, the repair composition. Following the instructions, fill up the deep cracks and scratches. However, if cracks and chips quite a lot over the entire surface of the laminate floor, it makes sense a complete replacement of the coating after the putty floors lose their attractive appearance.
If laminate flooring is not new, after repairing it to give it a more fresh look, cover it with a layer of outdoor varnish. The flooring will become more tidy appearance.
If there is sawdust and plaster, you can use foam. Complete the composition formed a crack and wait until the foam dries, carefully cut away the excess, protruding above the surface of the laminate, sand.
