With its organic wood look, a floating floor – also known as a laminate floor – is very attractive, but it doesn’t have the disadvantages of a hardwood floor, since its composition is totally different. It’s made of:
The main qualities of a floating floor are its warm aesthetics as well as its easy installation, its resistance, its stability, its comfort, its ease of cleaning, the easy interlocking of its slats, and its low cost. A floating floor doesn’t just imitate the beautiful appearance of wood; it can also look like a tile or polished concrete floor.
To install a floating floor, even though this is relatively simple thanks to its “clip” installation system, it’s often necessary to request the services of our professional floor layers for a professional job and a perfect result.
A floating floor is installed on an underlayer tailored to people’s needs to improve comfort as well as acoustics. The floating floor must also be installed on a specially prepared surface. As for the installation itself, it must be done according to specific rules that allow the floor to be installed for the long term and to be resistant to temperature variations.
A floating floor can be cleaned and maintained very simply with a broom or a vacuum cleaner. It can then be polished using a mop soaked in a cleaning product then wrung out, or with dry cleaning cloths. The thing never to forget is never to leave stagnant water on the laminate floor and to place anti-scratch pads under the feet of your furniture to prevent scratches
