Resistant to scratches, durable and easy to clean – laminate flooring has a lot of things going for itself which is why it’s one of the best flooring choices for folks in the San Antonio TX area. Laminate floors are almost identical to wood flooring in appearance, but have specific benefits that are important to many people.
A Laminate floor might be the best choice for you if...
You only have time for quick cleaning – Laminate flooring just requires regular dust mopping and occasional extra cleaning with a barely damp mop. You can even use your vacuum’s soft brush attachment. Just don’t ever use the vacuum’s beater bar which could dent your floor. If you’re careful to wipe up spills immediately, laminate floor maintenance is as easy as can be. Unlike wood flooring, there is no need to nor should you wax or refinish laminate floors.
You like a good warranty – Built to last, most laminate flooring comes with a multi-year manufacturer’s warranty. As long as you follow the manufacturer’s care instructions, your flooring will provide years of style and service.
You want high style in a high traffic area – Laminate flooring is attractive and durable. Which is good news because even with a welcome mat outside your front door and a throw rug inside, floors in high traffic entryways have to withstand the gritty dirt and sand that finds its way onto the bottom of human and pet feet.
You have children and/or pets – Because laminate floors are scratch-resistant, it’s a great choice for families with children and pets. Prevention in the form of mandatory footwear removal and keeping pets’ nails trimmed works perfectly in theory. But the reality of most families’ lives is that, at some point, a cleat-wearing child or sharp-clawed pet is going to make his or her way across your floors. Laminate flooring will help keep the peace in your home.
You want a durable version of wood flooring for your kitchen or bathroom – As long as you are careful about standing water, laminate flooring is an option for kitchens and bathrooms. Wood is not always a good kitchen flooring option, but homeowners often seek the heritage look of wood for that room. Laminate floors offer the look of wood along with the durability and easy maintenance needed for a busy kitchen. Bathrooms can be especially humid which isn’t the best condition for laminate flooring. Be sure to discuss your bathroom’s humidity level with your flooring professional to determine if laminate is a good choice for your bathroom.
