All our woods are high resistant to tread. Marks may occur due to impacts, falls, heavy weights on small areas (furniture), stilettos, small stones or pieces of metal underneath the shoes.
The finish is high resistant to scratches and usually it can be easily restored.
Oak and Walnut can be installed over subloors complying to UNI EN 1264-4.
Prior to installation check the heating/air-conditioning system is perfectly working (no water or steam leakage). The laying must be done after the uder-flooring has been conditioned, that is the heating turned on and off at least twice and have a final environmental temperature of 18/20°C (with heating turned off). Installation by a bi-component adhesive or equivalent is recommended; in case of floating installation for BIG BOARD three-layers 20 mm and BOARD three-layers 15 mm, the use of a suitable mat is necessary.
Installation over radiant heat is not recommended for BLACK LOCUST, CHERRY and ELM.

Modern decoration concepts give a key role to parquet in interior design. Maintenance of parquet is very important, just as it is with other décor components. Only a few simple maintenance procedures will keep your parquet in excellent shape for a long period of time. We start proper maintenance with the interior environment: the place where we live is the same place where our parquet “lives”. We recommend keeping a constant temperature between 16°C and 22°C and a moisture between 45% and 65%.This will give you a healthy environment and permit your parquet to remain stable for a long time.
Another obvious point is to place a good quality mat at the entryway. This lets you clean your shoes well and avoids carrying sand or small stones onto the parquet where they could scratch it. For routine cleaning and dusting we recommend using a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush specifically for parquet or using an antistatic cloth like those found commonly on the market. Periodic washing of your Mardegan Legno parquet, whether it has a varnish or an oil/wax fi nish, must be done using a neutral detergent like our PALLADIO detergent. Wash with a soft and well-squeezed cloth. Avoid unnecessarily “flooding” the floor. Avoid using very strong detergents or any type of acid which could damage the surface.
For extraordinary maintenance you must use specific cleaning products depending on the type of finish.
For varnished parquet you can use our VIVALDI product: a protective compound for varnished parquet that restores its original appearance and protects the varnish from small scratches and dirt.
For oil/wax treated parquet you should use our TINTORETTO product. This product is specifically designed to nourish and renew the surface of parquet treated with oil/wax.
