Can laminate floating flooring be installed on top of my existing floor?
Yes, this is possible, but bear in mind that the exact installation method depends on which type of floor you want to install your laminate floors above.
Some floor coverings are best removed first, but if you currently have a damp-sealed floor covering such as PV, linoleum, VCT etc, it won’t need to be removed, but a Quick-Step levelling underlay should be installed first.
If you want to install Quick-Step Colonial Plus laminate over a wooden subfloor, you will have to remove every existing floor covering first. It’s important to note that no signs of moisture, mould and and/or insect infestations should be present, the subfloor is level and that any loose parts have been nailed down.
While floating floors are often a DIY project, if you intend to install a floating floor above an existing floor it may be best to utilise the experts at Carpet Court to ensure a professional finish. We are always happy to provide advice and information, so if you have specific questions please contact your nearest local store by calling 1300 CARPET.
Whoops. I’ve stained my laminate floating floors! What should I do?
No matter how careful you are, we know that accidents can happen. That’s why Quick-Step Colonial Plus laminate floating flooring is specifically designed for the way we live today.
Should a spill occur, we recommend you clean up the stain as soon as possible. Don’t wait too long to remove as much dirt as you can by rubbing a clean paper towel or rag over the stain. Follow this with a quick vacuum or sweep to remove grit or potentially scratchy objects, and then give the floor a wipe with damp mop or cloth.
If you’re dealing with more difficult and persistent stains, such as marker, paint or even scuff marks, water might not do the trick, but acetone definitely will. Just put a little acetone on a rag and rub the rag over the stain but take care not to get the acetone into the joints of the laminate boards.
Your new floating flooring will come with a warranty and manufacturer’s maintenance and care instructions. Always follow these instructions when cleaning up spills and stains.
Will Quick-Step Colonial Plus laminate floating floors last?
Created by the meshing of four unique layers, the Quick-Step Colonial Plus range is perfectly solid, with an exceptional level of durability designed to withstand all the rigours of daily family life wear and tear.
Can I install of Quick-Step Colonial Plus laminate floating flooring in my kitchen?
Yes of course. As with all the floating floors in the Quick-Step laminate range, the Colonial Plus collection has a scratch and wear resistant 'Scratch Guard' surface layer, which makes it the perfect choice for your kitchen as well.
Even an accident with a glass of water falling on the floor is not a problem, as it is protected by a highly moisture resistant HDF core board, but it is recommended that you clean up any spills as soon as possible.
Of course, as the kitchen is one of the busiest rooms in the house, the laminate floor in your kitchen will have to be cleaned more frequently and more intensively than in some other rooms. However, there's really no need to wash the floor; in fact, we recommend against this. The sealed surface structure prevents dirt and dust from attaching to the floor so usually a quick sweep with a microfibre cloth or indoor broom will generally be sufficient.
