The Verdict

Well, the question remains. Which laminate flooring should you install, Classen or Pergo? Both of these products are excellent when it comes to laminate flooring. They both offer outstanding scratch and stain resistance, with warranties for many years.

When it comes to Classen or Pergo, the choice is clearly yours, the consumer. Both will provide years of enjoyment in your home or business. With a little bit of tender care, your laminate flooring will look new for a long time. Remember, do not use abrasive cleaners on your laminate flooring, as a film will develop and dull your floor. When it comes to cleaning your laminate floor, use the flooring cleaner that the laminate flooring company recommends, or a simple solution of one cup white vinegar to one gallon of warm water.
