Busy homes filled with kids and pets will have their fair share of stains, spills, and rips and no matter what you do, you can't quite wash them out of carpets and vinyl. Perhaps the family pet has had a bathroom mishap on the children's favorite playing area, or worse - clawed the carpet.
Your flooring nightmares are over! Laminate flooring was designed to stand up to the demands of a busy family household and when compared to other types of flooring solutions easily outperforms in almost every category.
Here are our top reasons for selecting laminate flooring for a busy family household:
Laminate flooring is tough
Designed with a tough and durable wear layer, it is much stronger than most installed solid hardwood flooring, vinyls, and carpeting. Laminate flooring stands up much better to dents and scratches that the softer surface of solid hardwood floors, and is a much better surface to withstand heavy foot traffic, kids, and household pets. Best of all - it continues to look brand new even after years of wear and tear.
Stain, fade, and moisture resistant
Most laminate flooring manufacturers offer triple warranty protection against stains, fading and moisture damage for 25 years. In contrast, solid hardwood floors are susceptible to wood grain staining, fading in repeated sunlight exposure, and are not a suitable floor for areas with high moisture or humidity levels.
Laminate flooring is easy to install
The popular quality brands of laminate flooring have created a glueless click together floating floor installation process. These floors simply need to be cut to size, clicked together, and are immediately ready to walk on or place your furniture. Most weekend do-it-yourselfers can handle this installation.
Laminate flooring is easy to clean and maintain
Spills and messes easily clean up with a little soap and water mopping thanks to the hard moisture and wear resistant surface coating. No residual stain or mess will remain and your laminate floors will continue to look brand new.
Laminate flooring are a healthy flooring choice
With regular cleaning, laminate floors can provide a much cleaner and healthier living environment when compared to carpets. Less dust, pet dander, allergens and dust mites accumulate on the surface, and the laminate surface will not hold residual stain contaminants like carpeting. Allergists often recommend the removal of carpets from the living space.
Laminate flooring is economical
Once you consider the costs of alternate flooring solutions over a typical laminate flooring lifespan it becomes an extremely economical solution. Carpets will require 2 to 3 replacements during this time, solid hardwood floors will require refinishing 4 to 5 times, and vinyl will need to be replaced at least twice, or more depending on traffic loads.
A worry-free family focused flooring surface
Kids can play toys on it, the dog can run through with muddy paws, the neighbor friends can visit with wet shoes, and the baby bottle spills all over the floor... not a problem anymore! Laminate floors are the perfect floor for busy families and growing households.
