What Are The Health Benefits of Laminate Flooring?

16 Mar 2022

Laminate Flooring is a great option for anyone considering a brand new flooring solution. Whether you’re looking to replace the crusty old carpet in your grandmother’s bungalow or breathe some new life into your office space, laminate flooring is a fantastic choice. Not only does laminate flooring look fantastic, but  it also has several very useful health benefits. 

In this article, we’ll be going through a few of those benefits. Our aim will be to give you a better indication of the various health benefits that come with this flooring installation. 

Chemically Sterile 

The first big health benefit of laminate flooring is the fact that they’re chemically sterile/hypoallergenic. This means that the flooring panels do not contain any chemicals or substances which may trigger an allergic reaction in people, such as wood preservatives or formaldehyde. This makes laminate flooring an excellent choice for people who suffer from allergies. 

Furthermore, thanks to the fact that laminated flooring is easy to clean, it’s extremely unlikely that germs and bacteria will have a chance to grow. This makes laminate flooring an excellent option for homes with young children, the elderly, or the immunocompromised. 

Easy To Clean

As previously mentioned, laminate flooring is exceedingly easy to clean. Chiefly, this means that it’s difficult for germs, bacteria and viruses to thrive on such surfaces. However, there is an important secondary benefit that comes with that. 

This secondary benefit is that a person doesn’t need to exert themselves to clean the floor. This makes them excellent for people with mobility problems – who may not have the strength to push around a hoover. As a result, the general level of hygiene is much higher than it would be otherwise. 

No Hassle Maintenance

Related to the above is the fact that laminate flooring doesn’t require any hassle when it comes to maintenance: damaged or broken panels can be removed quickly and without any tools or a particularly high amount of strength. 

In contrast, carpet needs to be taken up or recut; likewise, wood paneling requires that broken boards need to be fully replaced – which requires strength and specialist tools. This causes a considerable amount of stress, especially for people with no experience of this kind of work.
