When it comes to hard surface, wood look flooring, laminate is still a go-to material for many homeowners. It looks great with just about any décor and is super easy and quick to install. Thanks to a click and lock system, once the installation starts, it can proceed quickly, adding one board to the next. There's no need for nails, staples or adhesives of any kind. If you've chosen thicker boards, it can sometimes help to even out areas of your flooring that may be a bit off, as it can be in some older homes.
This material provides good durability, even in some of the most high traffic homes, and usually comes with a good manufacturer's warranty as well. This is a great benefit for homes with children, lots of houseguests or pets. Let your flooring specialist know exactly what you're looking for, to help narrow down the options as far as warranties go.
If ease of maintenance is a concern, then worry no more. In most cases, all you'll need to keep these floors looking like new for years to come, is a broom and a mop. Simply sweep or vacuum up any loose debris and follow up with a damp mop. If cleaning products are needed, such as is the case with bigger messes, be sure to refer to your manufacturer's instructions as to which ones are best for your specific flooring. For further protection, ask your flooring specialist about the use of area rugs.
