Previously we have discussed what laminate flooring is all about. Laminate flooring is made from synthetic fiber materials.
Apart from the homes, laminate flooring can also be used in commercial places. Laminate flooring is highly favored in commercial places because it requires little maintenance. A commercial-grade laminate flooring is manufactured to withstand high traffic that is seen in a commercial setting.
When purchasing laminate flooring for commercial uses, you need to consider their ratings so you do not use the one meant for low-traffic (residential) areas in a commercial (high-traffic) setting.
The rating for commercial laminate flooring should be anything between AC3, AC4 or AC5 not AC1 or AC2 (which is mostly for residential areas). This rating is based on a scale from AC1 to AC5 based on their ability to resist stains, scratches, abrasions etc.
Maintaining laminate flooring in commercial places is quite easy. With a superior quality flooring, wear and tear layer, dirt, dust and stains can be easily removed. There are no worries about laminate flooring in commercial places even if the place is exposed to sunlight.
Because of the synthetic finish of laminate flooring, the use of it in a commercial place is sure to attract customers. It brings out the class desired out of a commercial setting. Since it can be cleaned easily compared to hard wood flooring, it is more often used in commercial places. It takes less skill to install, and maintain. It is equally cost-effective. The use of laminate flooring stems from the fact that is manufactured to be easily installed by non-skilled person, i.e., you can even do it yourself.
