Laminate flooring is normally installed on a foam padding within a frame that you put into place around the outside of the room prior to installation. Perhaps the most important thing to learn when learning how to lay laminate flooring is that laminate flooring is not held to the floor boards so if you are gluing it or nailing it to the floor then stop now. Laminate floor is made up of compressed wood and as compressed wood needs room to move when the climate changes outside. If you secure the laminate floor to the floor boards it will cause it to crack when it starts to move. That is the reason why you install it in a frame instead of securing it to the floor board.
Cleaning up dust or loose dirt is easily done with a dust mop or vacuum; for more in-depth cleaning, use a damp mop or damp towel, but don't saturate or allow water to stand on the floor. Do not use abrasives or scouring powder, polishes, or waxes. Clean the floor before starting the you start the planned work. Designers recommend laminate for an upscale look without an upscale cost. Homeowners can make a house a home, stick to a budget AND get a warm wood look. Designed with a tough and durable wear layer, it is much stronger than most installed solid hardwood flooring, vinyl's, and carpets. It stands up much better to dents and scratches that the softer surface of solid hardwood floors, and is a much better surface to install if you have heavy foot traffic, kids, or household pets.
