Despite the fact that the laminate floor today quite unpretentious, without any particular problems which confronts a variety of external factors, sometimes with his problems. And so swollen laminate, what to do?

Do not worry, in most cases, the problem of "swollen laminate" removable without additional cost. Typically, this problem does not require replacement of the entire floor, and sometimes even part of it. Is usually enough to make a small repair work.

In this article we look at the main causes of bloating laminate and ways to combat and prevent this is not the desired effect. About how to eliminate most of the defects in the laminate including bloating read the article "Repairing laminate."

Swollen laminate.

Cause swelling laminate may be several: improperly without proper maintenance, poor quality laminate, etc. By the nature of the defect are two options: floating swollen joints for panels and laminate "went the waves."

In the first case, when the swollen laminate on joints connecting the panels is likely at this juncture into water. And as the basis for the laminate floor is pressed wood shavings and sawdust, it perfectly absorbs moisture and swells in the future. Hence the swelling laminate.

The reason for this effect is either not a quality laminate or not proper installation, or the introduction of large amounts of water on the floor and failed to delete from. In the first two cases do not ensure a tight coupling between the strips laminated cover, the second is not the correct operation and maintenance.

The second option is a laminate defect went in waves. The reason is only one bad styling. A wave on a laminate formed by thermal expansion of the floor covering. Ie during installation was not provided sufficient clearance between the wall and the flooring.

What to do?

Carry out repairs. If swollen laminate, this is the first described embodiment, without disassembling the floor is necessary. To eliminate the need to disassemble the defect area of ​​flooring in damage and replace damaged blades together with its neighbors. Of course, it is best replaced with new blades, although here, too, especially if there are features of the laminate is not the first year. The main problem you can not get in tune. As a result, the band will be replaced visible.

If you do not want to be used to repair the new band can do the following. As a rule, under a cabinet or bed strip laminate virtually no wear, as not subject to external factors. Accordingly, they can borrow from there. Of course this is double work, but as they say beauty demands victims. In order to be the problem of "swollen laminate" is no longer an assembly and disassembly must be implemented ravilno detailed in the article "Laying laminate their own hands."

In the second case, when the waves on the laminate, the problem is solved easily. You must remove the barriers that prevent the laminate to expand. Since we removed the wall, do not have opportunities, you need to remove part of the coating. In principle this can be done indiscriminately floor.

Need to identify the areas of contact between the laminate and the wall and saw out of the canvas, thus providing clearance. Account the gap should not be more than 10 cm or it will not close the skirting. In severe cases, it may be necessary to remove one row of strips of laminate.

That's basically all you need to do if swollen laminate. Good luck!
