Laminate flooring has a comfortable foot feel and good decoration effect, so many families like to use laminate flooring. Then how to buy laminate flooring?
Select free formaldehyde emission
Laminate flooring contains a certain amount of formaldehyde, if it exceeds the nationally prescribed index value (1.5mg/L), it will be harmful to the human body. It is most suitable to choose products with national environmental protection mark certification or inspection-free products when purchasing.
Choose Water Resistance
The water resistance of laminate flooring is reflected by the index of water absorption thickness expansion rate. If the index value is high, the water resistance is poor, that is, it is easy to cause dimensional changes under humid environment. Do not believe in misleading such as waterproof flooring. Currently, there is only moisture-proof flooring and there is NO waterproof wooden flooring.
Select The machining accuracy
After assembling 6-12 pieces of laminate flooring on the flat ground, use your hands and eyes to observe whether the processing accuracy is flat and smooth, whether the tongue and groove are properly engaged. It should not be too loose or too tight. At the same time, check the height difference and gaps between the floors carefully.
