Maintaining laminate flooring – Laminate flooring is very durable and not that hard to keep clean. All you have to do is regularly sweep or vacuum with a soft brush. Damp mop the laminate wood floor using a bit of ammonia or vinegar and water being careful not to flood the work panels as you can damage them this way. Some products that are not recommended for your laminate floor are soaps, scouring powder, floor polish or steel wool as these may damage the laminate wood flooring. Always test a product that you are unsure of in a low visible area. If you have to remove a stain use the recommended laminate floor cleaner and mop up to keep any water from entering the joints. Also make sure you use a damp mop and not a wet one.
Cost Effective – Of course, expense is a top concern when talking about flooring material. With Wilsonart laminates, you can really save a lot of money. Why? Well, first of all, their laminates are made from non-expensive yet high-quality materials. You can buy Wilsonart laminate flooring at an affordable price. On top of that, you can save more money because you will not require the services of a professional floor installer to install their product. You can do the installation even if you do not have extensive DIY skills. And that is not the end of it. You can save more money through the years with Wilsonart flooring because it requires little maintenance. With wood flooring, you need to occasionally buy wax. Let us say that an ordinary brand of 32 oz wax costs $7.99 and that you usually consume it in one week. There are four weeks in a month. So that would cost you $31.96 per month and about $383.52 a year. That definitely is some cost for maintenance. If you would not use a $7.99 32 oz wax to maintain your floor weekly for a year, then you can buy a top quality digital camera.
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.
Another reason that it's faster to install laminate flooring than it is hardwoods is because laminate planks are made somewhat wider than hardwood planks. This means that you'll have fewer boards to cut and install which will mean you can finish the process in a much shorter time. You'll like the awesome durability of laminate flooring. It is designed to be about fifteen times as strong as the best natural hardwood flooring. Because of its strength, it's much more difficult to damage a laminate floor, and it will stand up to high traffic much better than the solid wood does. Many laminate flooring products come with a ten or fifteen year warranty which is considerably longer than the warranties offered for hardwoods. This shows that the manufacturers of laminates have more confidence in the durability of their products, and you can, too. This is good, because laminates cannot be sanded and refinished to renew their beauty like hardwoods can.
