Adding tile to your home instantly improves any room’s usability and aesthetics. However, installing tile is a precise and labor-intensive task that is best left to professionals. A professional understands the various types of tiles and how each should be installed and grouted for the best effect. Improper preparation of subflooring or walls could lead to buckling and other cosmetic flaws that affect the look of your final tiled surface. Failure to waterproof the area where tile is installed could lead to mold growth and damage your tile over time. Additionally, the pros know how to lay out tile to achieve the pattern you want without running into problems once the tile reaches walls or thresholds. Hiring a professional to install your tile will ensure the job is done properly so you can enjoy the look and durability of your floor or wall covering choice.

Laminate flooring is durable, wear-resistant, and easy to clean. Because laminate flooring is not completely waterproof, dry cleaning methods are preferred to maintain your floor’s beauty over the years.
This video offers tips on cleaning laminate floors. Use a broom or vacuum for day-to-day cleaning to remove dust and dirt. Follow up with a microfiber mop, which will remove any lighter debris that is left behind. When using a cleaning solution, make sure you choose a product formulated for use with laminate flooring. Spray the solution onto a microfiber pad and distribute it evenly over your floor.
Laminate offers a long-lasting, cost-effective flooring option for your home.

Laminate is a durable and scratch-resistant flooring option that is an excellent choice for busy areas of your home. Despite its resilience, however, laminate flooring can still be scratched if not handled with care. Taking a few simple precautions will prevent damage to ensure your laminate floors continue looking their best.
Pad Furniture Legs and Bases
Furniture such as bookshelves, tables, and chairs can cause damage and scratches to a laminate floor when they are moved. You can protect your floor from scratches by placing felt pads on the bottoms of chairs and tables. When moving heavier furniture, make sure to place a thick layer of felt or other fabric between your floor and the object you are handling. This will prevent dirt and debris from becoming trapped underneath the furniture and scratching the floor as you move it.
Over time, dust and dirt can become ground into laminate flooring and cause scratches. You can keep dust, dirt, and debris out of your home using doormats placed on the interior and exterior of doors. Encourage family and guests to wipe their feet or remove their shoes completely to prevent tracking mud and dust inside that could scratch your floors. The use of mats will also make your floors easier to clean!
Clean with the Right Products
Not all cleaning products are appropriate for use on a laminate floor. Use only products formulated to clean laminate flooring to prevent damaging the surface and making it more prone to scratches. Additionally, use a soft or microfiber cloth when wiping the floor or cleaning up spills and stains. Steel wool or other abrasive materials can cause scratches even on durable laminate floors. Never saturate the floor with water or cleaner, as this could also cause damage.
