Make sure buckling or warping does not occur. Laminate floor is sensitive to water and moisture. That is to say, when exposed to either, your floor could get damaged. Buckling or warping happens if there is much moisture in the air, there is too much water on the floor, or there is water coming out from the subfloor because of a not-so-reliable moisture defense. There are cases, however, that this kind of damage is just a result of a low quality laminate floor product. Always be prepared to be bugged by mold and mildew problems. Aside from buckling or warping, moisture also carries molds and mildew problems to your laminated tiles. In this case, it is important to know whether or not there is too much moisture in the floor area and, if there is, you should be able to get rid of this moisture problem or else it will constantly haunt you with mold and mildew issues.
Originating as a company making lacquered boards for the shipbuilding industry, Alloc started production of high pressure laminate flooring in 1992. In 1996 it introduced a mechanical locking system that allows the laminate boards to be laid without glue. Originally, most laminate floors replicated only the most in-demand wood floors. As laminate grew in popularity however, other looks were introduced, including highly realistic stone and marble. Unlike solid wood or engineered wood flooring products which are usually nailed or glued to the sub floor, laminate flooring floats on the sub floor. The individual strips or planks of many laminate systems snap together while other systems do require the application of small amount of adhesive along the joints. Unlike traditional hardwood floors, laminate floors do not require periodic sanding and refinishing. The top protective layer is all that's needed. Unlike hardwood flooring, there is no need to polish your laminate floor. You can simply clean it with wet cloth and vacuum cleaner to dust out the dirt.
