What product can I use to seal crack between wood planks in real wood flooring?

real wood flooring Add comments

We moved into a flat that has beautiful real wood floors, but between each plank is a gap of 1 – 2mm which just collects dust and small particles and makes the flooring not look as good as it should. What product can I use to seal the gap and enhance the flooring?

They make caulks and fillers to do this in matching colors but they may stand out and show more than the cracks do now.
Have you check or had checked the humidity level in the place? Most often this is a cause. The boards can be dry and shrunk and having the correct humidity will have the boards " re swell".

    I would not fill these cracks. When the weather changes the floor will expand and it will push the filler out of the cracks.
