What Are The Pros of Owning Laminate Flooring?

There are many reasons to own laminate flooring in your home or commercial space. Simplicity to low maintenance will turn your busy home into less of a hassle. Laminate is low maintenance and you can simply clean with a vacuum or broom. You can clean this flooring with a damp mop in a mixture of white vinegar and water. No waxing! Please be aware tha­­­t if you attempt to wax the laminate, it will leave a film layer on the planks. Laminate is not a full wood product and will not absorb any waxes or oils.

In addition, laminate is easy to install! Newer types of laminate flooring have a click and lock, which makes this a simple Do-It-Yourself project.

Unlike wood, which can dent, laminate flooring is almost impervious to dents and scratches. Laminate contains an aluminum oxide wear layer that protects the photographic layer underneath from wear, fade and stain. These laminates also carry residential and commercial warranties to sure the performance of the wear layer.

 

While hardwood nor laminate can hold up to pools of water, laminate is perfect for moist areas including bathrooms, kitchens and other areas of water exposure. The top wear layer of laminate has water resistant properties but will not resist heavy moisture. In heavy areas, use of tile or vinyl will succeed.
