Laminate flooring blocks are easy to clean. The top veneer resists topical moisture, which can be easily mopped up. You won’t ever need to wax laminate flooring as you would hardwood floors.
Laminate block flooring installation is fast, usually taking an average of 5 days for a 10×20 ft. room – a far cry from hardwood flooring, which can take up to 3 weeks before the entire job is completed. Some laminate designs need to be glued, but more recent designs snap together easily, like puzzle pieces.
Most laminate flooring has an underlayment, which gives the floor a softer, almost springy feel. The underlayment makes standing on it for extended periods of time much easier, which is ideal for areas where a lot of standing is required.
