Your exposure to harsh chemicals are also diminished greatly. Laminate is largely stain-resistant, so your health and pocket will both benefit from being able to ditch the frequency and strength with which you have to apply detergents and harmful floor chemicals. A broom, damp cloth or vacuum cleaner is all your need to clean the floor.
