If you’ve decided to put new flooring in your home, you’ve probably thought about going with laminate flooring. However, if you’re like a lot of people, you may not want to follow through with this idea because you’ve heard some not-so-great things about laminate. To convince you that laminate flooring really is a good option, here are three common myths about laminate and why they aren’t true.

Three Myths About Laminate Flooring You Need to Know

Myth #1: One of the main things you might have heard about laminate flooring is that it’s flimsy and it can be damaged easily. However, since each panel consists of at least four layers, it is actually extremely durable and can last for many years with proper care.

Laminate FlooringMyth #2: You may have also heard that laminate flooring is time-consuming and difficult to clean. Contrary to popular belief, it’s even easier to clean laminate than traditional tile and hardwood. All you really need to do to keep laminate flooring looking great is vacuum or sweep it regularly and use a damp cloth to take care of spots.

Myth #3: The final myth we want to dispel about laminate flooring is that this type of flooring is only designed to imitate genuine hardwood. In reality, laminate comes in many different designs, and it is engineered to look like many types of flooring, like tile.

After debunking these myths, we feel like there’s no reason why you shouldn’t put laminate flooring in your home. To find out more, give us a call at Giant Carpet Flooring Centre.
