Whilst they look amazing and are in many ways the much better choice over carpet, the laminate floor does pose an issue with slippiness under certain circumstances. There are several ways that you can counter this. First and foremost you need to make sure that you maintain the quality and integrity of the floor with regularly sweeping and cleaning of the floor.

That’s not to say that you should over do it in the floor polish. If you put too much on it will make the surface too slippery and it takes some time for the floor to get back to its normal state. Therefore if you are going to polish it make sure that you follow the instructions carefully so as to not over do it. The other and more aesthetically pleasing option is to purchase a nice rug. This is a popular choice with many owners of laminate flooring as it also helps to retain the heat in winter and to protect the floor in high traffic areas.

Spillages are the worst offenders. For example the most common accidental slip on Supermarkets is that of the errant grape from it’s bags. Get one of these under your foot and you are likely to come acroper. That’s not to say that you can’t enjoy grapes above your Laminate Wood Flooring that you’ve chosen from https://irwintiles.ie/index.php/wooden-flooring/laminate-flooring.html, just take care.
