The best laminate flooring is well known for its superb durability and marvelous impact resistance. Its also known for its identical look and feel of real hardwood. Some of the best laminate flooring can actually fool a person to believing that you just laid a hardwood floor down. Shoes of any kind will not cause indentation to a quality laminate floor. Cigars or cigarette that are drop for seconds will not burn through. Plus worries of water getting on this type of floor is not an issue. When installation is complete keeping your laminate floor staying clean and tidy is swift. Laminate floors can be swept or vacuum easily everyday with no hard effort. Marks can be wiped away with a damp mop or cloth. A wet paper towel can do the trick too.Using a doormat or area rug can keep your laminate floor from getting scratched and grim in high traffic areas. So I leave you with this information which is very helpful to anyone that has no idea on how to lay laminate floor.
Whether you want to do it yourself or ask somebody to do it for you, these are some of the things you should take note of. Try to avoid peaking. There are various reasons why peaking could happen. First is when the expansion space between the wall surrounding the installation and the laminate floors or the expansion space between laminate moldings and laminate floor is not enough. Second is if the floor could not expand since the moldings have been fixed to the floor. And, third is if you have a very long continuous area of flooring and you do not have an expansion joint. These would result to joints with high points. With the lack of space, your laminate floor boards would try to push each other up thus resulting to such high-pointed joints.
Consumers have been discovering that there are a lot of advantages to having laminate floors installed in their homes instead of the more traditional hardwood flooring. For starters, laminate flooring is made of anywhere from three to seven layers of materials making it very durable. One of the layers of the laminate flooring controls the look of the floor. It is made by using photographic images that cause the floors to look like authentic hardwoods with grain, color, and even knots. Since laminate technology relies on photographic images, many more designs can be used than are available in solid hardwoods. Even when using a standard wood image, such as an oak grain, the two looks will be somewhat different. No two boards of solid hardwoods will ever be exactly the same due to the natural graining and flaws in the wood, but the patterns in laminates are repeated over and over. Rather than being a disadvantage in laminate floors, this is actually a plus in that if you need to replace a damaged plank in your laminate floor, it will be much easier to find a new one that will match your floor exactly.
The outer layer can be without difficulty scratched and keeping sand, gravel or other small, harsh particle off the floor is one of the main tips on cleaning a laminate floor. Using a vacuum cleaner or a soft padded broom can also keep the surface from becoming scratched, creating a dull finish. Using throw rugs at entryways can help capture most of these, but in the event some do get through the rug, they will need to be promptly cleaned. While laminate flooring is intended to be waterproof, wet mopping can in fact cause damage to the floor. Further tips on cleaning a laminate floor include not using any type of abrasive cleaners, scrubbing pads or sandpaper on the surface as it will scratch the surface. Even small particles of dirt will also create tine cuts and grooves that can quickly fill with dirt and make the floor dull and lifeless.
