As a homeowner, you do whatever you can to protect the investment that you have in your home. One of the key components to any home is the flooring. Whether you have hardwood flooring, carpet, tile or laminate flooring, you want to to take care of it as best as you can so that it will last for a long time. Unfortunately, very few parts to a home take a beating more than your flooring. Laminate flooring tends to be a cheaper flooring option than some of the others, and it can be more vulnerable to damage also. The team at Magnus Anderson is here to help you with your laminate flooring issues.

Common issues that happen with laminate flooring can include warping, chipping, mold, mildew, and scratches. Scratches have the potential to be an easy fix. You can buy a laminate flooring repair kit at many home improvement stores, and remedy that issue pretty quickly using wax crayons or putty. However, because homeowners tend to put laminate flooring in rooms of the home where easy floor cleanup is a must, like kitchens and bathrooms, many of the common problems that arise are a direct result of contact with water.

The majority of laminate flooring buckling or warping happens because of water damage. It is imperative that when water or other liquids spill onto your laminate flooring that you clean it up immediately. We cannot stress that enough. Many times, mold and mildew can inhabit a bathroom floor after a long period of time because of water falling out from the bath or shower, and people not drying the floor immediately. Unfortunately, while it is possible to save laminate flooring in that situation, it is a complicated process and not cheap to do. Most homeowners will choose to replace the damaged laminate flooring in that case.
