How to Use Wood Filler

When fitting unfinished flooring, especially parquet flooring you will likely find some small gaps between the boards, this is quite normal and can be easily rectified. The easiest and most cost-effect method is to gently sand the floor first and collect the fine sawdust from the sanding. You can then mix the sawdust with a good quality PVA glue (make sure the glue dries clear like the Sika one we supply). You want a consistency similar to pliable putty. Only make a small amount at a time as the glue will likely harden in 20mins. Use a flat blade to fill the gap; do your best to minimise over spill and leave to dry, continue to work around the room. Then see our video “How to fine sand a parquet floor after filling”.
