Maintenance of laminate floors does not differ significantly from hardwood or other solid surfaces. A thorough sweeping or vacuuming will help to remove dirt and debris resting on the surface. The protective coating ensures that any stains or spills can be wiped away easily. While laminate flooring is more resistant to moisture and humidity, standing puddles can still damage this material.
Laminate floor is much more forgiving than hardwood in a number of ways. The "wear layer" of laminate flooring protects it against scratches and dents to which hardwood is vulnerable. Additionally, laminate can be used in areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, and basements where higher levels of moisture are present. The main drawback with laminate flooring, however, is that it cannot be refinished and must be replaced once the "wear layer" has worn down or the material has been damaged. In terms of long lasting durability, there are other flooring options which will last virtually as long as the property.
At a glance, quality laminate effectively replicates the appearance of hardwood or stone. In many cases, it is only the sound or texture of the material that allows some people to distinguish it from the natural material is has been designed to mimic. There are endless options for customers to choose from when installing laminate flooring, making it an ideal complement to any style.
Laminate is a highly affordable flooring material which offers many benefits in terms of low maintenance and scratch and stain resistance. Unlike hardwood, however, it does not contribute to the value of a property. If you are not planning to sell your property in the near future, it is an excellent and inexpensive way to update the look of your home or business for immediate enjoyment.
When considering laminate flooring for your property, it is important to keep in mind that laminate can be slippery.
