Is it OK to put laminate floors in bathrooms?
Laminate flooring is best suited for small bathrooms, such as a downstairs half bath or more intimate master suite bathroom. Half baths, with only a sink and toilet, lack the tub or shower to create spillage or humidity.
Is laminate floor suitable for kitchens?
Laminate flooring is a perfect choice for your kitchen because of its strength. It is stain and scratch resistant, so you can keep your laminate flooring for years to come. Installed with an underlayment, it blocks out moisture and muffles the sound making it more comfortable for you to walk and move around on.
What is laminate flooring made from?
At the base of any good laminate flooring plank is a layer which helps to keep the board to remain straight. The core or the central layer of laminate flooring is made from HDF or High Density Fiberboard. Some manufacturers also use MDF or medium density fiberboard. The next is decorative paper layer. The overlay layer is the top layer of any laminate flooring. The overlay layer is also referred to as the wear layer and it protects the laminate floor surface from minor wear and tear.
How to Clean Laminate Floors?
The best way to clean an entire room with laminate flooring is with a laminate-flooring cleaning kit. You can also use a damp microfiber or spray mop such as a Swiffer. These pick up dirt and grime without leaving streaks or pools of water. When washing a reusable mop head, don’t use fabric softener, as this can leave residue behind the next time you clean the floor. Insted you can use a damp mop and a homemade cleaning fluid made from three parts of water and one part of vinegar.
