What is laminate made of?
Laminate flooring is a composite material designed for durability and practicality. It consists of four layers:
- Melamine, the bottom layer, provides structure and moisture resistance.
- The Coreboard is strong, stable, and provides the desirable thickness in laminate flooring.
- The ‘decorative layer’ is actually a high-quality, detailed photograph that gives the flooring its desired appearance – whether it’s wood, marble, tile, etc
- The top layer of melamine provides a tough, clear finish to resist wear and protect the integrity of the decorative layer.
Why is laminate available in so many styles?
Laminate can replicate the appearance of most natural materials because it is essentially a high resolution, detailed image printed on high-quality Coreboard and protected with a sealant such as melamine.
Why would I choose laminate?
Laminate is an affordable alternative to expensive natural materials, and provides the convenience of a low-maintenance surface.
How do I maintain the quality of my laminate?
To avoid damaging the finish of the laminate, do not use abrasive cleaners or buffers on the flooring. To avoid warping, swelling, and delamination do not wash or mop the floor with soap, water, detergent or any liquid cleaning materials. Protective mats in entrance ways and floor-protectors of the feet of furniture will prevent scratches, denting, and wearing of the floors surface. Sweeping, dust-mopping and vacuuming is preferable. Spot-cleaning with nail polish remover on a clean cloth is fine for more difficult stains. Dampened cloths are preferable for the average spill.
