Home insurance: Making floors last longer

Tuesday, 05 June 2012

The floor of your bathroom may last longer if it is kept well maintained and clean, according to one expert.

And of course it goes without saying that a regular clean will make the floors look much nicer.

Home insurance holders and other bathroom owners picking a laminate option will benefit from the fact that these are actually very simply to maintain, suggested Philiep Caryn, a spokesman for the flooring company Quick-Step.

"The surface means that any loose dirt can be swept or wiped away without staining the floor," he added in a recent chat.

The communications and sponsorship manager also said that floors in bathroom areas needed to be optimised to prevent slipping and be capable of standing up to contact with water.

Practicality was a priority, suggested the spokesman, whose company has a particular area of specialism when it comes to wooden and laminate underfoot options – and not just for bathrooms.
