What is the ideal
Wooden floors enjoy the same range of temperatures as man does. The ideal temperature for parquet is the same as the most comfortable for man. It would be best if it didn’t dip below 15°C. But even more important, relative humidity should be kept at between 35% and 65%.
Wooden floors suffer the most in overheated rooms during winter. An overly dry environment can shrink the parquet. This situation is also a warning bell for our lungs, which under those conditions are more vulnerable to infection. But what if it is too humid? Well, then the opposite happens. The wood expands, it swells. And humidity means we humans feel a more acute sense of fatigue, of un-wellness. The right temperature and humidity will ensure a long and healthy life to our wood flooring. And to us too.
