The Benefits Of A Laminate Floor





Author:Andy

Make no mistake I love carpet, indeed I do not know many people who do not like the feel of a deep pile carpet to put their feet on when they get out of bed in the morning. Yet carpet is not for everyone, and many people who work long hours, and lead busy lifestyles outside of work do not want to be spending time Hoovering carpet every few days to keep it clean. As a result, other forms of flooring have begun to challenge carpets, for market share.

One other reason for this is that fitting a carpet is a job for a professional. If a carpet is fitted by anyone other than a professional, the results can be disastrous and an expensive carpet can be virtually destroyed in the process.

However in comparison, any competent person can lay down a laminate floor, or put down floor tiles. Indeed all the tools you need to put down either of these floorings are available in any good Do It Yourself (DIY) shop. Investing in the tools to put either of these floor coverings down will be money well invested, as you will undoubtedly use them again in future.

Laminate flooring wins over carpet in many ways. Firstly it has dropped down in price such that it is now often cheaper than carpet per square metre. Secondly it is very hard wearing; indeed in tests some laminate floors have proven to be harder wearing than solid wood floors.

It also very easy to keep clean, with any liquid spills such as black coffee, red wine or even paint being easy to wipe up, with no stain left to show. Just think of how difficult gloss paint would be to remove from a carpet - a spillage could result in your carpet being totally written off! As a result, this is a big advantage held by laminate floors over other types of flooring.

It now also comes in a wide range of styles. Whereas most of us just think of laminate flooring as being 'wood effect', it is now available in numerous finishes including mosaic and mock brick or tile effect, making it suitable for a wide range of uses.

So to re-iterate; it is very hard wearing, low cost, and easy to install. Even if you hire a professional to install the flooring, the cost will be low as the time taken to install is minimal, with a competent fitter able to lay a laminate floor for an average room in around half a day.

Winn’s Pro- I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

I manage 16 luxury homes in Aspen, Colorado and would not go anywhere else for my carpet cleaning needs. On top of requiring very discreet and trustworthy services, our homeowners have specialty rugs and carpets which require unique care. Over the long relationship Ute Place has shared with Marty, there is not a problem Winn’s pro has not been able to handle for us. When he says, “call me any time”, he means it! Marty is always willing to help in emergency situations late in the day or over weekends and holidays and arrives on your doorstep quickly and with a smile. My homeowners are continually impressed with the “magic” Marty works on their carpets and rugs, always leaving them looking like new. I would, without hesitation, recommend Marty’s professional services to any client looking for a superior, friendly and flawless cleaning service.

Thank you Winn’s Pro!

Testimonial from Mason Morse Real Estate:This is to let you know that Marty Winn did an excellent job of cleaning our carpets. His service is unbeatable and the quality of his work is definitely first class.We had stains on our carpet that no other carpet cleaner was able to get out. The stains were set in and had been there for quite some time. Marty came to our office and said he did not care if we gave him the job or not; but he wanted to try and get the stains out. He not only got them out, his prices were excellent also.Marty came and cleaned our carpets and has followed up to make sure the stains have not returned.I highly recommend and trust Marty and Winn’s Pro Carpet Cleaning. He definitely is a professional and takes pride in his work.Thank you for all that you have done!Sincerely,Karen Scarberry/Office ManagerMason Morse Real Estate0290 Hwy 133Carbondale, CO. 81623
