As the temperature is getting lower and lower, it has ushered in a new heating season. The winter climate is inherently dry, and the use of various home heating equipment for long periods of time in response to low temperatures can make the interior drier. This kind of environment can easily cause the aging of many building materials and furniture in the home. Therefore, it is necessary to master some home maintenance skills to make the family "young forever"!
The use of heating and heating equipment allows everyone to enjoy the warmth in the winter, but at the same time it may make the floor of the home "difficult". The floor can be said to be the home building material that is most affected by heating. When the heating season arrives, the floor in the home is prone to cracking and lifting. Let's take a look at how the floor in the home should be cured during the heating season.
Heating season floor maintenance skills
First, the floor maintenance in the floor heating environment
As people's heating comfort requirements are getting higher and higher, the installation range of floor heating is becoming wider and wider. More and more homes have installed floor heating, while floor heating surface finishing materials mostly choose floor. The first thing to know is that the ordinary solid wood floor has a large deformation coefficient and is not suitable for floor heating.
1. Slowly raise and lower the floor heating temperature
When you turn on the floor heating for the first time, be careful to slowly heat up. Do not adjust the temperature very high at once. Because if the temperature changes too much too fast, the floor is likely to be cracked and twisted due to expansion. Similarly, when the weather is warmer and there is no need for heating indoors, care should be taken to turn off the floor heating system and do not drop the temperature, otherwise it will affect the service life of the floor.
2, the surface temperature of the floor does not exceed 30 ° C
When using floor heating, the surface temperature should not exceed 30 °C. At this time, the room temperature is below the optimal ambient temperature of 22 °C, and the service life of the floor can be guaranteed.
3, floor heating floor surface storage needs attention
Try not to accumulate a lot of debris and legless home on the floor heating surface, so as not to affect the floor heat dissipation. Also, do not place foam or plastic products on the floor. After long-term exposure to such items, it may cause harmful gases and affect health.
Appropriate increase in indoor humidity
Second, appropriate increase in indoor humidity
In the heating season, the ground temperature rises, the floor will shrink after losing moisture, and the gap between the floors will increase and cracks will occur. At this time, the owner can appropriately increase the indoor humidity, so that the crack of the floor can be prevented from becoming excessively large.
There are many ways to increase the indoor humidity. For example, you can use a humidifier to humidify. If there is no humidifier, it is also good to wipe the floor with a squeezing cotton mop. In order to keep the floor in a relatively stable state, it is necessary to ensure that the indoor humidity is above 50%.
Wax the floor to lock the moisture
Third, regular waxing maintenance
There is a certain amount of water remaining inside the floor. In the case of heating in the winter, the floor loses water and shrinks, and the gap between the floors increases. At this point, the floor is filled with solid wax to lock the moisture inside the floor, which will reduce the extent of the expansion. However, it is best to consult the manufacturer before the floor is waxed to see if it is suitable for waxing, and which wax is best.
