Laminate flooring is a multi-layer synthetic flooring product fused
together with a lamination process.
Laminate flooring simulates wood (or
sometimes stone) with a
photographic applique layer
under a clear protective layer. The inner core layer is usually composed of melamine
resin and fiber board materials.
There is a European Standard No. EN
13329:2000 specifying laminate floor covering requirements
and testing methods
It is important to keep laminate clean, as dust, dirt, and sand
particles may scratch the surface over time in high-traffic areas. It is also
important to keep laminate relatively dry, since sitting water/moisture can
cause the planks to swell, warp, etc., though some brands are equipped with
water-resistant coatings. Water spills aren't a problem if they're wiped up
quickly, and not allowed to sit for a prolonged period of time.
felt pads are often placed on the feet of furniture on laminate floors to
glueless laminate floors may gradually become separated, creating visible gaps
between planks. It is important to "tap" the planks back together
using the appropriate tool as gaps are noticed in order to prevent dirt filling
the gaps, thus making it more difficult to put into place.
There are many benefits to choosing a laminate floor over other
types of flooring. Laminate flooring is quite versatile and durable. Due to
laminate flooring being a printed strip of vinyl over a composite board many
textures and styles of flooring can be replicated. Recently laminate floors
have seen success in simulating stone and tile patterns as well as wood.
laminate floors is easy and comparable to cleaning other hard surfaces such as
hardwood floors. It is generally not recommended to mop laminate floors as this
has been shown to cause damage by soaking into the composite portion which
allows warping over time. Most manufacturers suggest using dry methods such as
brooms to clean with occasional wet cleaning with more specialized mop-type
products that do not leave excessive water on the flooring.
is a large benefit of choosing laminate flooring. A generally handy person is
well equipped to install laminate flooring as the locking and floating aspects
of laminate floor are mostly self-explanatory. Also, due to the ease of
installation, having professional flooring contractors install this type of
floor is less expensive than other types of flooring such as tile or hardwood.
