Normally, the wider the solid oak floor is, the easier it cups and wraps if the moisture content is not doing well. Our kiln dry and inspections procedures guarantee each piece of products meet the moisture content requirement. More details shows as below.
Kiln dry procedures:
Step 1 Air dry 21 days
Step 2.Kiln dry for 20 days to reach Moisture content 18%
Step 3.Air dry for 7 days and balanced the boards
Step 4.Kiln dry for another 20 days to reach moisture content less than 10%.
Step 5 Air dry and balance the boards before coating.
The drying procedures dry the solid boards stably and prevent cupping and wrapping properly.
We inspect the moisture content before and after planks fabricated by each piece.
Moisture test after the raw materials kiln dried.
