Is the wood floor warping normal?
Is it normal for the wooden floor that has just been opened to warp? Many people will raise such doubts, this article will answer this question in detail.
It should be very clear that the warpage of the floor has nothing to do with the quality of the product. It is related to the mechanics. The length of the floor determines the curvature of the floor. Whether it is solid wood panels, blockboards, multi-layer boards, plywood, fiberboard, density boards, beams, etc., products made of wood will more or less bend up or down on the floor, 50% of which is because The characteristics of wood itself.
The surface layer of the solid wood composite floor is solid wood, and the lower layer is either plywood or multi-layer plywood. Because the strength of solid wood is not uniform with the plywood, the imbalance of the forces on both sides will definitely cause upturning or down bending. The shorter the length of the parquet, the lower the curvature, and the longer the length, the greater the curvature.
In addition, some have not been bent or slightly bent just after unpacking, but bent after a few hours or one or two days. This is caused by environmental factors. Although the solid wood composite floor is composed of solid wood and plywood, But its wooden characteristics have not changed. After being exposed to air humidity, it will accelerate the bending of the floor and stabilize at a certain warping point.
However, the upward or downward bending of the floor is regular, and there will be no irregular deformation.
It should be noted that whether three-layer solid wood, multi-layer solid wood, European, Chinese, or pure solid wood, the floor exceeds 900mm in length, it will generally bend. Warping will not affect the installation of the floor, nor will it affect the use of the floor. The bending phenomenon will disappear after the installation of the floor.
