You'll need to take the time to ensure that the floor is dry, clean, and level first, if you buy actual hardwood floor planks and plan on installing the same. In such cases, you'll need to secure the planks to the floor with adhesive. Keep in mind that if the floor isn't level, the boards will stoop and screech over time. Then there is the danger of the sub floor rotting, underneath your beautiful new floors, if in the first place the floor is not dry. Thats a horrible experience which no one should have to encounter. As long as you take your time and are able to follow a few simple steps, bamboo flooring installation is a simple enough process which is not costly or demanding.
Now, you need a high speed buffer to restore the shine of your floor. Once waxing and buffing is all over, you just need a good polish and scrubbing and your floor is back to life.
Then determine which way you want to run the floor. That means when you are looking at the room do you want the flooring to run horizontal or vertical? Trying to run the flooring diagonally is a great look but you should only try it if you pretty handy and have a lot of patience because it will require a lot of miter cuts.
You also need to put up barrier mats. It is must for every home to have proper door mats at the entrance or exit of the house since it would help remove grit from the treads of one's shoes or any sneakers and then a rubber backed cotton based mat inside your doorways. This would lessen the transfer of moisture and grit onto your laminate floors. Have you also heard about castors? Well, the unprotected castors could damage your floor. If you have a lounge chair, you could see old metal type castors coverings a point load which would result to indentations in your laminate flooring and could even cause the break-up of the layers.
