Many misunderstandings in floor purchase, defects

the editor found in the interview a few days ago that some flooring businesses also mislead consumers in the publicity of the appearance and function of 12mm flooring. Therefore, some consumers fall into the misunderstanding of measuring floor quality only by thickness

>& gt;& gt; Relevant recommendations: it is easy to distinguish the three signs and three falsehoods of imported flooring.

the thicker the floor, the better.

around 1995, when laminate flooring was just launched, the thickness was only 6 mm. In the following years, 8mm flooring has been dominant in the market. In recent years, the floor thickness has been increasing. Now 12mm floor has become the mainstream, and 13mm and 15mm thick floors have appeared on the market. This industry trend has led many consumers to the illusion that when buying laminate flooring, they pay great attention to thickness, and believe that the thicker the floor, the more weight, which means that it is stronger, more durable, and naturally better quality. Is this really the case

"in fact, thick plates are the same as thin plates. Once the surface is worn out, it cannot be used. Therefore, the quality of the floor surface is largely related to the service life of the wood floor, not the thickness of the plate." Industry insiders Mr. Huang said that the decisive factor affecting the quality of laminate flooring is not thickness. When consumers choose laminate flooring, the key depends on the material and process level of the manufacturer

insiders reminded that under the condition of the same price of the floor, we would rather buy the 8mm floor of the brand wooden floor than the 12mm floor of the miscellaneous brand, "it looks thick, but because of the huge differences in cost, process and production technology, the service life of the miscellaneous brand thick plate may not be as long as that of the large brand thin plate"

the harder the floor, the better

Miss Li, who lives in a community in Fengling, Nanning, is buying wooden floors recently. She told reporters that some businesses have done a hardness comparison test when selling, such as knocking their own floors against those of other brands to show that their floors are very hard; Or compare the hardness of 8mm floor with 12mm floor, and confirm that 12mm floor is better than 8mm floor in hardness. For this comparison method, Miss Li did not know whether it was credible. She said in confusion, "is it true that the harder the floor is, the more durable it is?"

in this regard, experts said that the higher the density of laminate flooring substrate, the higher the mechanical properties and impact resistance, so its side is more resistant to knocking, but it is not that the higher the density, the better. Under the same conditions, the higher the density of the substrate, the greater the expansion rate of the water absorption thickness, the worse the dimensional stability, and it is easy to deform in case of water and moisture. At the same time, the hardness is large, the toughness is poor, and the foot feels uncomfortable

"embossed" flooring is more wear-resistant

at present, most flooring brands have launched "embossed" flooring with concave convex texture, pursuing the effect of more primitive and primitive flooring, which is favored by many consumers. Recently, when the reporter visited the wood floor market, he found that some businesses had a relationship with the wear resistance when introducing the "embossed" floor. Some businesses said that the surface of the "embossed" floor had been treated very well, which was more wear-resistant than the general floor; Or "concave convex texture increases wear resistance", etc

experts point out that most of the popular wooden floors in the market, such as "large relief", "small relief", "relief expert" and "relief surface", are not suitable for use. Because wear resistance is the most important use index of wood floor, carving on its surface is bound to greatly reduce the wear resistance of the floor, reduce processing accuracy, and easily hide dirt, so that the use quality is greatly reduced. When consumers buy, they should not simply pursue the surface effect, ignoring the service life of the goods and the trouble of maintenance

the shallower the floor slot, the better

12mm floor and 8mm floor have more notches in appearance, which has the paving effect of solid wood floor. But in the market, some businesses said that "the shallower the better" when introducing the floor trough. The reason is that the floor trough is shallow, which is not easy to hide and accept dirt, and it is convenient to take care of. Moreover, the floor groove is shallow, and the feeling of stepping on the floor is significantly better than that of the deep notch floor

experts corrected that the depth of the floor trough is a production process problem, which is directly related to the connection between plates. As long as the floor is firmly buckled, the depth of the floor trough is not a big problem. At present, the floor trough is divided into V-shaped trough and U-shaped trough, which have their own advantages and disadvantages and cannot be killed with a stick
