There are more than a few reasons why the use of laminate flooring has caught on so quickly, among them the easy installation, its durability and its ease in maintenance and cleaning. Most floors are warranted from between 10 to 25 years, depending on the brand, and by using a few simple tips on cleaning a laminate floor, it can turn out to look as good as new during the lifetime of the warranty and beyond. While laminate flooring may present the impression of being made of hardwood, it is important to remember the construction when using the tips on cleaning a laminate floor.
Hardwood flooring needs continuous maintenance. You need to keep it clean, keep things that can scratch it off of it, and you will need to protect it with coatings when needed. Prices can range from well under $10 dollars per square yard to well over $40 dollars, not including installation. Vinyl laminate flooring can be a mistake, if it is not done correctly. Price is not always a good determining factor when trying to buy a quality product. You have to consider your time in shopping for your floor, clearing the room, removing your old floor covering, installing the floor and replacing all the furniture in the room. But, what exactly are laminates as used in laminate flooring? Originally developed in Europe, laminates are made of a high-density fiberboard core covered with a visible, outer layer that simulates wood, stone or tile. Some laminates are available in plain colors, too.
