Laminate Flooring: Exactly what is it? The look and feel of high-quality laminate floors make them virtually indistinguishable from real wood. Unlike parquet floors, however, they aren’t made from solid wood. Instead, they consist of an engineered wood core layer covered with a decorative layer.
Laminate flooring comes in various widths and lengths. Large formats with surrounding V-joint and nature-identical embossing are now especially popular, as they replicate genuine country house-style plank floors more convincingly than ever before.
Laminate flooring that is embossed in register, in other words, with the imprinting or embossing closely followings the colours of the grain, a technique that is known in some countries as “synchronized laminate” – looks astonishingly like real wood. Good laminate flooring is also robust, lightfast, easy to clean, and is characterized by low emissions.
Embossed In Register (EIR) – This is an expensive process whereby the timber grain in the laminate is embossed to create a very realistic finish Beveled edges – this is where the ends and sides of the boards are cut at a slight angle to create a small “V” bevel. This is another feature added to make the floor look more timber like. AC is a rating system that measures abrasive resistance and determines if a floor can cope with high traffic such as retail or is limited to residential purposes. Most floors tend to be AC3, AC4 or AC5.
Laminate flooring is made primarily from wood, in other words from a natural raw material. Despite this, many people still believe that it is plastic. In actual fact, this type of flooring consists of a core of high-density fiberboard (HDF) to which a layer of décor paper is applied. The HDF panels consist of about 90% of wood fiber and 10% of environmentally friendly bonding resin. Laminate flooring coverings do not contain any plasticizers or pesticides or any other harmful additives.
You can therefore be sure that all our laminate flooring has an excellent environmental footprint and is thoroughly healthy. Laminate Flooring: Where can it be used? In private homes, high-quality laminate flooring can be laid just about anywhere. Some varieties are even suitable for kitchens, for which décor that emulate tile or stone are especially popular. Laminate flooring is also often installed in commercial establishments, including hotels, restaurants, offices and shops.
These floors naturally take more of a beating than in homes. So make sure that you choose a product of an appropriate utilization and abrasion resistance class so you can continue enjoying it for a very long time to come.
How to Clean Laminate Flooring?
So now that you have your floors installed, the next step is to ask yourself: How do I clean my Laminate flooring? Cleaning and maintenance are a lot more relevant than you may think. Proper maintenance can ensure that your floors serve for their maximum lifespan.
Just like all wood or wood composite floors, Laminate flooring should not be exposed to stagnant pools of water for extended amounts of time. Therefore, always clean up spills on laminates as soon as possible. The method of how to clean laminate flooring for everyday purposes mainly focuses on the amount of water.
These floors should not be cleaned with a very wet mop as the excessive water could damage them. Additionally, do not pour detergent straight onto the surface as this might stain the boards. Instead, spray the detergent onto a damp cloth or mop. We recommend that you use a microfiber mop, well rinsed a just wet enough to wipe. We don’t recommend using harsh chemicals and spays as they evidently will cause future damage to your floors.
We recommend to using 1 to 2 caps of vinegar per liter of water (warm or cold) is the best solution as it cleans the floor and leaves no chemical haze behind, like all other detergents. We also suggest that you sweep and vacuum more than a wet wiping or semi-dry mop. Laminate flooring does not require any form of polishing.
If you have heavy furniture or other furniture items that will be moved regularly, you can purchase self-adhesive carpet pieces that can be stuck to the bottom of your furniture item to prevent scratching, even though laminate flooring is scratch resistant, taking precaution is better than causing damage to your floors.
