Water damage is no laughing matter
When it comes to water damage, laminate floor coverings often fare better than other types of flooring. As long as you wipe up any spilled water promptly, the floor should be no worse for the wear.
Flooding or other significant water damage is a different story. When laminate flooring is saturated with water, especially for a period of time, damage will occur. Repairing the damage correctly is important then, both to restore your floor to its former attractive appearance and to prevent the development of problems such as mildew growth.
Still, laminate floors are increasingly popular among homeowners, as they look nice, are affordable, and are relatively easy to maintain, especially compared to carpet or hardwood floors. With the proper care, laminate floors will last a long time.
We’ll provide some tips for preventing water damage to your floors. We’ll also tell you what to do if your laminate floor suffers water damage, including when and how to get some professional help with the job.
