Laminate has been around for quite a while now, and we know that when it first hit the flooring scene it was quite misunderstood as flooring goes. Some of those laminate flooring myths are still lingering around and that’s where we come in! We’re here to bust those well known laminate myths, just in time for your spring clean and new flooring!

Welch Mill – Laminate flooring showroom Warrington

  • Easily damaged and not durable – did you know laminate consists of a minimum of 4 layers?  This makes it extremely durable and ready for day to day life, not matter how busy your household might be! With the proper care, laminate can be known to last for years.
  • Looks cheap – we’ll admit this was probably true years ago! But now you can get laminate a huge range of colours and patterns, made to suit every home out there. If you don’t believe us, why don’t you come and visit our showroom today?
  • Difficult to clean – this couldn’t be further from the truth now. One big bonus with laminate is that is doesn’t have any seams for bits of debris to get stuck in. The best way to clean your laminate flooring is using either a dust mop or vacuum cleaner. You don’t want to use a wet mop as water might seep in and warp the panels.
  • Can’t easily be repaired – this is actually the opposite. Laminate flooring is one of the easiest types of flooring to repair or replace. There’s a huge amount of laminate or wood repair kits on sale in the relevant shops which work perfectly to help get out those deep scratches or stains. If it’s too far gone, then all you need to do it pop out the panel that is damaged and replace it with a new one. It really is as simple as that!
