There are several ways to install your floor. Different products will generally be designed for a specific installation type, so make sure you understand the process before installing your floor. The different processes are as follows:
- Floating Installation - This is certainly the most common way to install laminate flooring
today. A foam underpad is first placed on the raw floor. Then, the installer puts the flooring on top of it, clicking pieces together. In this way, the laminate "floats" on the underpad.
- Glue Installation - This is a bit more expensive and time consuming than the former option, but it has the benefit of being sturdy and permanent. This may be done on top of an underpad or the previous floor material. Glue is placed on the surface, and the new material is carefully fitted on top.
It's important to take some basic steps to make sure your laminate flooring lasts long and maintains its finish. First and foremost, make sure to clean regularly with a soft brush or damp mop. A more thorough cleaning should be done less frequently; you'll find a variety of cleaning products specifically designed for laminate floors. Make sure to clean up spills promptly, and avoid dragging furniture.
