Is laminate flooring waterproof?
In some cases yes, but not always. Some laminate products on the market that advertise themselves as waterproof but typically laminate floors are not. With more common laminate water can cause major damage, especially if the water soaks into the wood pulp core causing it to expand and damage the rest of the plank and those planks around it. There are many waterproof vinyl plank alternatives to laminate that will perform similar or better than laminate, and resist water damage, at a similar price point.
What is vinyl flooring?
Today’s vinyl has come a long way from what you might remember as grandma’s vinyl floors. Vinyl, or “resilient flooring,” can be defined as sheet vinyl, or as luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) or luxury vinyl planks (LVP). Vinyl continues to be an extremely durable, and fashionable, flooring choice with outstanding warranties and a gorgeous array of design and style to suit every room in your home.
What is a general procedure for cleaning floors?
It’s difficult to provide a one-size-fits-all answer to this question, since different floors have different cleaning requirements. For example, what’s appropriate for wood or carpet might be wrong for tile or stone. That said, it’s generally a good idea to start by removing loose crumbs and debris (such as vacuuming or sweeping), then follow up by wiping or scrubbing to remove any remaining stains. As always, we recommend referring to the manufacturer’s guidelines, which will provide you with step-by-step care instructions.
Do dog's nails scratch hardwood floors?
Hardwood floors are naturally resistant to wear-and-tear, including damage from scratching and scraping. That’s especially true for species of wood that rank high on the Janka hardness rating scale, such as mesquite, mahogany, Brazilian cherry, and hickory. However, even the hardest wood can be damaged by repeated scratching, like daily wear-and-tear from your dog’s nails. Fortunately, there are several solutions to this problem. For example, you may wish to apply a protective wax to your floors, or other protective sealants. However, you should consult an expert first to avoid accidental damage.
