All About Laminate Flooring Singapore

Laminate flooring for home is chosen by many people due to its excellent durability and cost effectiveness. Without spending for the real wooden floor you can give your home the same wooden feel with laminate flooring. But laminate flooring needs strict maintenance and thorough care for preserving its elegance for years. With proper care and maintenance, you can hold its lasting durability. But if you are not careful enough, then its beauty can fade away as its surface is delicate and requires special maintenance. Make sure to vacuum your floors and wipe with dampened mop regularly.

You can also adhere to the basic maintenance tips offered below:
Cleaning Products:

Do not even think of going for acrylic and wax finishes for the laminates. Clean your floors only with the recommended products or else wax or products like acrylic can harm the protective coating of the delicate surface.

Damp Mop:

You can wipe your laminate floors with a damp mop but never with a wet one. It will harm the floor surface and the water can cause dullness. It is better if you can dampen your mop in an effective solution comprising three parts of water and two parts of vinegar.

Avoid Scratches:

The small pebbles and dust can cause light scratches on your laminate floors that may not be apparently visible to you. But gradually the floors can get dull if the dirt is not properly cleaned. To avoid even the minor scratches, you can vacuum the floors instead of being sweeping the dirt across the floor. Dirt trapping mats can also be placed at the doorway to prevent the dirt from spreading in the whole room.

Prevent Scratches from Furniture:

The rubber pads or the non-scratch wheels if attached with the furniture, then you can save your laminate floor from scratches. If you have to regularly shift furniture around the room then always use the non-scratch wheels for swift maneuvering.

Remove Stains:

Be careful while removing stains from the laminate floors. If it is something similar to tar, paint, oil or permanent-marker, wipe the particular area's with clean-cloth soaked with nail-polish remover that contain alcohol or with acetone. If you have to clean things like wax or sticky chewing gum from a laminate, then put ice in that area and wait till it hardens and ready to be scrapped off. To avoid tough stains on your flooring, try to clear them as soon as possible.

Inexpensive

It stands to reason that because the material used to produce laminate flooring is made of synthetic fibers, it is far less costly than natural flooring. Also, the majority of hardware stores are now manufacturing their range of laminate flooring which helps to keep prices low and the choices multiple. The only dilemma you will have is choosing which design best suits the decor of your home and your lifestyle.

Easy installation

Your laminate flooring comes packaged in tongue and groove planks which will be slotted into each other. According to the room size, it can take anywhere from a half day to a day to lay the floor tiles. Laying the tiles horizontally from the window will allow the tiles to pick up the light. It is usually recommended to leave the floor set for about a day before walking on it as this allows the tiles to take shape.

Durability

Because the tiles are laminated, this gives them extra strength and protection against wear and tear and marks such as those from high heels which easily dent a natural wood floor. Rooms with heavy traffic are unaffected, and this is one of the main reasons why people with younger children choose this option. Grubby footprints are easily washed from the surface in no time, leaving your floor looking brand new again.

Stylish

This type of flooring comes in a wide range of wood finishes from dark to light woods such as ash. As it is a replica of wood, it adds the glamor to your floor without the need to break your bank. You can style your room around the type of finish you have gone for; maybe you have chosen a dark wood look and enjoy the rich and sumptuous colors available in this particular color palette.

Insulation

Laminate flooring has many layers built into it to protect against water damage and so forth. Added to this there will also be underlay applied to your floor before hand and all of this means keeping the heat in your house instead of escaping through gaps and cracks in your floor. It is also possible to have an under floor heating system installed, and if you choose to go down this route, it is something you need to factor in as part of your floor making the decision in order that you make the best choice.
