Laminate Flooring Frequently Asked Questions

What is laminate flooring?

Laminate has the timeless, stunning look of a wood or stone floor, at a fraction of the cost. It offers other benefits too: 

• Laminate flooring has higher resistance to wear-and-tear than a real wood floor.
• Ideal for areas of high traffic or where low maintenance is important. 
• Greater resistance to stains, scratches and scuffs than other wood floor types.
• Simple to install.

They are also multi-layered: laminate flooring includes a heat layer, a design layer, a touch-core layer and a stabilising layer, to enhance the longevity of your new floor.

How much does laminate flooring cost?

We offer an extensive range of laminate flooring starting from as little as £7.99 per square yard. This means that you can get the look of a real wood floor at one of the most affordable price points of any flooring type, however bear in mind that increasing your budget can lead to significantly higher quality products.

You can find additional benefits with more expensive laminate flooring, such as water-resistance and textured grains that offer the look of a real wood floor with greater durability.

We always recommend viewing and touching samples of laminate flooring in person before making your decision on which one best meets your needs. 
Visit our superstore any time from 8:30 – 17:00 Monday to Saturday to browse our extensive product range and allow one of our friendly staff to help you choose the perfect floor for you.

How do I clean my laminate floor?

There are a few key recommendations to consider when cleaning your laminate flooring:

Never wet mop. Any laminate floor that becomes over-wet can swell and bubble.

Initial cleaning is best done using a hoover with a brush head attachment to remove dust and debris.

• To fully clean your laminate floor use a dry mop with an approved laminate floor cleaning solution. 

• Laminate floors can be easily damaged by moisture – simply ensure any spillages or leaks are cleaned up immediately to avoid damage.

What areas or rooms is Laminate flooring suitable for?

Laminate flooring is hard-wearing and can be used in almost any room in the home.

Please bear in mind that we do not recommend using it in wet areas such as bathrooms because any water that isn’t cleaned or dried up immediately can cause damage, where the laminate planks can swell or bubble. 

Laminate flooring remains a popular choice for living rooms, lounges, hallways and bedrooms, where we can create a huge variety of different looks and effects – without the big price tag.

What’s the best underlay for my laminate floor?

We have a wide range of underlay options depending on your requirements, to help reduce noise, provide additional Insulation and warmth, and act as a moisture barrier. Talk to one of our team to define the best type of underlay for your job.

What are some of the key fitting considerations for laminate flooring?

We can book you an appointment for one of our expert fitters to complete the job for you, or, if you’re looking for a DIY project, we can provide the laminate flooring on a supply-only basis for collection or delivery.

Some sub-floor preparation is required to ensure that the area is clean, smooth and free of debris before fitting your laminate flooring. This is essential to get your new laminate floor to sit properly.

What are some tips for general maintenance of my laminate floor?

It’s important to look after your laminate floor correctly in order to get maximum lifespan from your product. Depending on which brand and type of laminate flooring you choose, the residential instructions will vary slightly, however there are some basic guidelines that are generally applicable to all laminate floors: 

• Use wood flooring felt pads on the bases of furniture and legs of chairs. Although laminate floors are scratch-resistant, repeatedly moving heavy furniture or chair can wear down the surface and leave scuffs or scratches. Using felt pads under all furniture will protect against this.

• Check your shoes before walking on your laminate floor (especially heels!) Look out for debris or anything sharp, especially common in high heels, that can cause significant scratches to any hard floor.

• Install mats at entrances. Having an outside mat in place helps to remove stones and dirt. A thinner rubber backed mat inside is a good idea for removing extra moisture.
