One of the things we love most about laminate is its durability. For instance, it’s incredibly resistant to scratches, stains, impacts, and even fading caused by direct sunlight. Because of this, it is most often used in rooms such as bedrooms, living rooms and even dining rooms and dens. It stands up well if you happen to have pets and children in the home.
This material can be installed in a variety of ways. First, there is the floating floor, which is applied with no glue, nails or staples at all. In this case, planks simply lock together for a quick and easy install. This is the most common form you’ll find in this style of flooring. There are also the types that can be glued into place, as well as those that come pre-glued. The pre-glued version only needs to be moistened and attached to the subfloor. Be sure to discuss these options with your flooring specialist, to see which method is best for your own home.
Maintenance and upkeep is easy when it comes to this floor covering. You will never have to worry about waxing or polishing them, and with a good broom or vacuum, and a damp mop, you can quickly keep them looking brand new for years to come. For information on which cleaners you can use, be sure to speak with your flooring specialist, or consult your manufacturer.
