There only one type on the market, that I know off, that will with stand that kind of treatment. Thats Traffic Master Allure. The seams, when put together, are water proof. Most all click and loc floating floors will allow water between the seams. It will then seep down and be damp under your flooring. The only other thing is full sheet goods of vinyl. I ve installed this several times, along with in my GFs boys bedroom. We just went through a spring thaw and flood in the base ment were his bed room is. Didn t do a thing to the floor.

Q:How do you say Second Floor in French?
It depends. The second floor in France is actually the premier étage, as the ground floor is the rez-de-chaussée, reserved for shops and the like. But the second floor is the deuxième étage.
Q:Cannot decide Parquet floors or laminated floors?
Laminated flooring is the easiest surface to clean. Also with all the colours to choose from, it's very tempting. From a money point of view, also art deco-ish, people absolutely love reviding the old parquet flooring. They would not think of taking it out. The quality of the wood is much more hardy than laminate. Once you have taken all the gunk, there probably is, off the parquet flooring, you can have a poly-urethane sealer put on. It does not shine, and can be cleaned with soap and water.
Q:Why do lot's of place's use wax floor's with all the labor vs artificial floor's.?
Some flooring , especially in retail floors, need a top coat to protect the floor from all the foot traffic. Whats commonly applied isn t a wax but more of a urethane finish or top coating. When buffed it heats up melts and reapply s itself to the floor along with a shiny finish. Most vinyls for residential flooring no long requires a wax but a simple mop on polish. And yes it occasionally needs to be stripped and reapplied. But this to is a simple mop application.. This is for the same reason, its a top coating to protect the vinyl from foot traffic..

Q:How to do a spot sanding on my oak floor?
Only if your floor is a natural oak floor( no stain) or if you have some stain , you might be able to do this. You can partially sanded and refinish a natural floor since you don t have to blend in a stain.. If its stained I d recommend a whole floor sanding... GL
Q:sea floor spreading and magnetic pole?
Sea floor spreading is the tectonic plate-related condition found when two plates diverge(i.e. move away from each other) . Upwelling magma fills in the fissure left in the gap. As more spread occurs, more magma rises to fill both sides of the fissure. More sea floor is formed. The magnetic domains of iron atoms in magnetite in basalt, orient to the positive magnetic pole ( North Presently)and those orientations are fixed/locked when the magnetite/iron cools below the Curie point regardless of future pole changes. When mapping the sea floor, Navy researchers found that these magnetic domains would lie in one direction then switch to the opposite pole. They also found the these bands were the same for bands equally distant to the ocean mid oceanic ridge on the opposite side. This pattern repeated may times each time resulting in an identical orientation equally distant on the opposite side of the mid-oceanic ridge. (repeated for emphasis) As the mid-oceanic ridge propagation /sea floor spreading is a conveyor belt of continuous basalt production. This alternating band of magnetic orientation could only come about it the magnetic poles were swapping orientation on a recurring basis in intervals of hundreds of thousands of years. Ergo seafloor spreading and magnetic pole orientation prove each others existence You are most welcome!

Q:Help with laying vinyl flooring?
You were fortunate to have armstrong perimeter glued product installed.So yes the floor would be in good enough condition. Some must do's These are important for warranty and longevity of your vinyl floor. Floor needs to be extremely smooth not to show through residental vinyl with its sheen. Use Portand cement products only they are good moisture resistors. I personally use ardex feather finsh it is very strong and will spread very nicely. Spread the ardex over all joints in the floor and where old glue was scraped. It dries in about 1/2 hour, using a fan to quicken the drying process. When dry sand ridges smooth and then do a very good sweep. Using a hand broom to make sure the floor is clean, I also use a joiny knife to scrap across the floor to make sure no old staples in the floor have started to rise up. Vinly is suppossed to be rolled with a 75 to 100 lb roller but if you use a wet rag and start pushing out air from center to edges you will acheive a good enough bond. A 1/4 piece of rice would look like a mountain under the vinyl. Anything larger than a grain of sand can be seen under the right lighting conditions so again smoothness is key. Good Luck Im sure you will be happy with your acheivement.
