Benefits of Laminate Flooring
Although an artificial floor covering the laminate flooring comes with many advantages. In fact, it combines the benefits of other floor coverings into one.
Laminate Flooring is Durable
Designed with a durable wear layer, laminate flooring can be stronger than most solid hardwood flooring, carpets and vinyl floor coverings. It is more resistant to scratches than softer surfaces (solid hardwood floors for eg.) and is one of the best choices for households with heavy foot traffic, kids, or pets. Most of all, laminates will look like new for years.
Laminate Flooring is Scratch Resistant
Modern laminates have advanced and offer high resistance to stains, spillages, fading and moisture and many laminate flooring manufacturers offer warranty protection against them for a long period of time (usually from 10 to 25 years).
Easy To Install
The top brands of laminate flooring have developed a glueless floating floor installation process. They just need to be cut, clicked together and are ready for walking or even placing heavy things, like furniture, on them. Most professional floor installers could do it in a couple of hours or days, but expect to take longer if you want to do it yourself. The "click" fitting system used by most of the manufacturers allows quick and problem free laminate floor installation.
Easy Cleaning and Maintenance
To clean up spills and messes, just use a little soap and water and your laminate floors will look brand new.
Laminates Have Health Impact
Laminate flooring provides a much cleaner and healthier living environment when compared to other floorings such as carpets, with regular cleaning cycles. It accumulates less dust, pet dander, allergens and it doesn’t hold residual stain contaminants on the surface. Allergic people will often be recommended to remove the carpets from the living space.
Laminate Flooring is Budget Friendly
A typical laminate flooring is a budget-friendly solution. Solid hardwood floors will require 4-5 refinishings and carpets and vinyls will need to be replaced at least twice (depending on traffic loads), while laminates don’t require anything.
In conclusion, kids playing with their toys on the floor, the dog running through with dirty paws, friends walking with wet shoes on it, or baby bottle spills all over it won’t be a problem with laminate flooring. They are the perfect floor for busy families and growing households.
