Laminate flooring is a multi-layer synthetic flooring fused together using a lamination process. Laminate flooring simulates wood-like features and is splashproof.

What is the difference between a Micro & a Painted Bevel Edge?

The micro bevel shaves the wear layer down at a slight angle to create a distinct look for each flooring piece, and it assists in mitigating subfloor inconsistency.

A painted bevel is considered an upgrade to a micro bevel finish. Just like how it sounds, the edges of each piece are painted using a special machine with a complimenting color to the floor. This added detail brings dimension and interest to the floor, highlighting each board’s character.

What cleaning solutions should I use with my new flooring?

Clean your floors periodically with a professional vinyl floor cleanser. We recommend a P/H Neutral vinyl cleanser, such as Bona. 

For moderately soiled areas, use a mild solution of isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol and distilled water. Dilute the mixture by mixing one part alcohol and two parts distilled water. For tougher spots, use a higher concentration of isopropyl alcohol and distilled water.

Avoid using any cleaning agents containing wax, oil, or polish. The leftover residue will form a dull film. Always spot test in an inconspicuous area. Do not use any wood care floor cleaning products on vinyl floors. Self-polishing acrylic waxes can cause the surface to become slippery and appear dull quickly. Do not use vinegar as a cleaning solution, its acidic properties will harm the finish.
