Laminate Flooring is a multi-layer synthetic flooring material. Laminate flooring is fused together with a lamination process. This type of flooring imitates the look of wood and in some cases stone with a photographic applique layer under its clear protective layer.
Advantages of Laminate Floors
- Installing laminate flooring is a snap – although we always recommended using an installing professional, fitting laminate flooring is easier than you might think. There is no need for special glues as the laminated flooring simply click together, saving you precious time.
- Variety – from the luxurious German Kronoclik range, architect’s choice of Supreme laminated flooring to the beautiful Finfloor’s Black Forest variety; you are guaranteed to find the laminate flooring that will fit perfectly into your design.
- Cleaning is easy – You do not need to worry about applying wax or other types of wood polish. All you need is a duster or vacuum followed by a damp mop or cloth.
- Hypoallergenic – As laminated flooring is easy to clean and does not absorb pesky dust like carpets, people with allergies will benefit from installing laminated flooring.

However, Laminate Flooring is a relatively easy DIY project you can do by yourself as well. They are packaged and presented with grooves that click into each other, as a result the planks can easily be laid without much hassle. Additionally, they require no nails and screws as the boards are essentially “floating” over the subfloor.
Prior to laying the boards, it is important to ensure that the subfloor surface is level, firm and completely dry. We also recommend that you lay a damp-proof and noise reducing layer beneath the boards. Due to the fact that wood expands, a small gap of 1 to 10 mm should be left at the edges where the floor meets the walls.
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.
