8mm Laminate Flooring

8mm laminate flooring is a very popular choice of laminate flooring. The actual flooring is made in the same way as any other thickness of Quick-Step laminate flooring.  It has a strong a base consisting of a balancing layer and high density fibre board core.  Then a design layer, which is the part of the flooring that you see.  This is a high resolution photograph of either real wood or tiles.  It is then finished with a protective transparent surface layer.  This innovative design creates a robust and durable plank of flooring. The total thickness of the flooring is 8mm.


Why should I choose 8mm thick laminate flooring?

8mm thick laminate is a great choice for homeowners and property developers as it is perfect for almost any room in your home.  The flooring has been designed and manufactured by Quick-Step, a very well-known and reputable flooring company.  They have designed the laminate flooring to be strong and durable.  It has a transparent top layer that offers protection against stains and scratches.  All 8mm laminate flooring is water resistant and some are even waterproof, so be sure to choose the correct type of flooring for your chosen room.

All of the 8mm laminate flooring has an easy to use click fitting system, which ensures a tight and seamless floor without the need for glue, nails or expensive equipment.  It is ideal for any keen DIYer.  Also, 8mm laminate flooring is compatible with underfloor heating systems.  It has been specially designed to allow the heat to transfer to your laminate floor without causing any harm to the floor in any way.

Within the 8mm laminate flooring range you will find a variety of different colours, species of wood style, plank widths and lengths, so there is sure to be something to catch your eye.


How do I maintain 8mm laminate hardwood flooring?

Maintaining the beauty of any laminate floor is very easy to do if you follow a simple cleaning routine and take precautionary steps to prevent unwanted damage.  To effectively clean your laminate floor, sweep on a daily basis to reduce the build-up of dust and dirt, and then clean your floor using a wood floor cleaning spray and mop on a weekly basis, or as often as needed.

To prevent unwanted damage to your laminate floor remember to ask everyone to remove their outdoor footwear, especially if it is dirty or wet. You can also use felt protector pads on the bottom of furniture to stop any dents or scratches.
