Knoxville LaminateTypes and Descriptions
Laminate flooring is tile that is carefully crafted to duplicate the look and style of authentic wood, stone or ceramic. Laminate is available in a variety of plank layouts for the look and style you want. A feature that delights homeowners is that laminate is a “floating floor.” It doesn’t have to be nailed or glued to the subfloor. Laminate can be installed over most existing floors, including concrete, ceramic, vinyl and wood. Unlike traditional wood flooring, with laminate there is no need to sand, stain or seal the floor.

COREtec represents the next revolution in luxury vinyl flooring. COREtec is a great alternative to glue down LVT, solid locking LVT, or laminate flooring. The patent-pending construction of COREtec features our innovative COREtec core structure, which is an extruded core made from recycled wood and bamboo dust, limestone, and virgin PVC. Since COREtec is 100% waterproof, COREtec floors can be installed in wet areas and will never swell when exposed to water. COREtec is inert and dimensionally stable; it will not expand or contract under normal conditions. Further, COREtec never needs expansion strips in large rooms. Each COREtec plank has an attached cork underlayment for a quieter, warmer vinyl floor that is naturally resistant to odor causing mold and mildew.

Laminate Care & Cleaning

You undoubtedly chose a laminate floor because of its beauty and its durability. Laminate floors last a long time, and will last even longer if properly cared for.

When necessary, mop using Dura-Luster Laminate Floor Cleaner. Exposure to water can damage laminate flooring, so if you choose to clean with water, make sure to use a damp mop.

EASY CARE STEPS FOR LAMINATE FLOORS

  • Place a natural or colorfast mat at outside entrances to collect tracked-in dirt and absorb excess moisture.
  • For added indentation resistance, use felt floor protectors on chairs and other furniture. As a general rule of thumb, the heavier the item, the wider the floor protector should be.
  • Laminate floors are tough, but they can be scratched and gouged. So do not allow dirt and grit to stay on your floor. Also, do not drag sharp objects and furniture across the laminate surface.
  • Vacuum your floor regularly, but be sure to use soft brush attachments on your vacuum. Do not use a vacuum with a rotating beater bar.

ROUTINE LAMINATE FLOOR CARE & CLEANING

DO:

  • Sweep or vacuum using the wand attachment, then follow with Dura-Luster cleaner.
  • For spills, just wipe up with a cloth or sponge.
  • Allow time for floor to dry after washing.
  • Immediately wipe up wet areas from spills, foreign substances, or wet feet.

DON’T:

  • Use soap-based detergents or “mop and shine” products, as these may leave a dull film on your laminate floor.
  • Use abrasive cleaners, steel wool, or scouring powder, which can scratch your floor. And, in very sandy areas or at the beach, sweep or vacuum regularly.
  • Wax or polish your floor.
  • Attempt to sand or refinish a laminate floor.

For routine care and maintenance of laminate floorings, we recommend Dura-Luster Laminate Floor Cleaner, available from Greater Tennessee Flooring.
