Tips & Warnings on cleaning laminate floors

  • For a more natural way to clean a wood laminate floor, get a spray bottle and mix it to the top with 1/3 water, 1/3 rubbing alcohol and 1/3 white vinegar. Spray in sections and wipe it down with a damp towel as you go.
  • Be careful when sweeping or mopping a wood laminate floor – the metal or wood parts on the broom and mop can scratch the surface of the floor.

Trafficmaster in Basement Review

Trafficmaster Allure Oak ReviewTrafficmaster Reader Review:

The majority of complaints about this product is when it is installed in basements. The temperature swings cause the pieces to expand and contract so they warp. Also, concrete + moisture + trafficmaster = mold.

The only other common problem is that the product marks up easily.

Further, I seriously doubt this would last 25 years, but it is cheap, looks good, and is easy to install.

Should I Float or Glue my Trafficmaster Floor?

Find Trafficmaster Flooring

We are installing Traffic Master Engineered Hardwood Flooring. Are we supposed to use glue and if so, what kind/type of glue?

Can this be used as a floating floor without glue?

I personally have glued this product down and it looks and performs fantastic. It is currently 2 years old and looks like the day we installed it.

I remember the box shows directions for gluing it down, but I have heard of people floating it and believe that is is advertised as a floating floor.

We used the standard glue available from Home Depot on the floor we put down. We bought quite a bit of it and did a great job putting it down. I highly recommend gluing it down as it makes it feel extremely solid.
