While laminate is extremely durable, surface and structural damage can occur under certain conditions.
Here are some standard maintenance tips to help prevent these events:
•Place mats in front of sinks, stoves, and all doors leading outside.
•Place area rugs in high traffic areas.
•Place felt protector pads under furniture feet.
•When moving furniture, lift it rather than pushing or pulling it.
•Clean up all spills as quickly as possible.
•Maintain suitable temperature and humidity levels within the room.
1. Laminate Flooring Provides Subfloor Adaptability
Laminate floors also known as "floating floors" are known for their adaptability to a variety of subfloor types. Ranging from concrete to a new wood subfloor, to an existing ceramic or vinyl subfloor. As long as the subfloor is level, clean, and dry laminate floors can be easily installed over it.
2. Laminate Flooring is Extremely Durable
Laminate flooring is manufactured by bonding four distinct layers together. The surface layer is made of several coats of melamine, an extremely tough resin-based coating. this layer makes laminate flooring highly resistant to burns, dents, scratches, stains, all but the most extreme of impacts. Which makes it virtually resistant to kids, cats, dogs, even high heels.
3. Laminate Floors are Stain, Fade, and Moisture Resistant
The melamine external layer makes laminate resistant to stains and water, as long as spills are wiped up quickly. Laminate will not fade in direct sunlight or any source of artificial light. Most laminate manufacturers back this with a 15 - 30 year warranty, depending on the brand and model.
4. Laminate Floors Offers A Range of Style
Modern laminate flooring is available in hardwood, stone tile, and ceramic tile designs. While laminate flooring simulates the authentic look of hardwood or stone, the new styles and colors offer immense possibilities. The variety of patterns and color tones enable you to match your floor with the exact style and mood of your home or office. Whether your going for cool and contemporary or rich and elegant, you'll be pleasantly surprised by the realism and quality of modern laminate floors.
5. Laminate is Easy to Clean and Maintain
Laminate's exceptional stain and moisture resistant exterior coating makes cleaning up spills and other messes effortless. All you need for everyday cleaning of laminate flooring is a broom, vacuum cleaner (without a beater bar), a dry mop, and a damp cloth. Also laminate doesn't require any waxes or varnishes to keep it looking great.
6. Laminate Flooring is Environmentally Friendly
Laminate floors are inherently green. Laminate is make from wood, wood by-products, and natural resources like wood chip fiberboard, so it does not involve harvesting rare or endangered trees. Most laminate floors do not require any special glues or adhesives during installation, so it eliminates VOC's. Also there are no special cleaners needed for proper cleaning and maintance, which improves air quality.
