It’s only natural for your flooring to deteriorate. Perhaps you fitted your flooring years ago or gained an existing house with the flooring you didn’t pick, which leaves the question: how would you know when it’s necessary to update your floor?
Excluding some stains and damage, your floor’s lifespan is determined by the material it is made with. Almost any material has a different life expectancy. However, the type of material used is only one factor determining how long the floor can last.
Quality of the material, if the floor was previously installed correctly, foot traffic and if your floor receives regular maintenance. All these can affect.
Here you can learn how long these flooring types should last and how long it may be before you need to call Kodiak, your professional Chandler floor removal company.
Lifespan of Flooring
Here are the common flooring types and how long you expect them to last before you need to call your tile removal company.
Hardwood flooring should last a lifetime; however, the natural wood flooring’s burnished sparkle will fade. After about 25 years, you’ll notice fading, though hardwood floors can last up to 100 years if installed correctly.
Higher humidity and moisture levels cause hardwood floors to deteriorate faster than if they remain dry. If the boards in your hardwood floors are shifting or moving, you’ll need to replace them. This is because of a faulty installation, and it will require a pro floor removal company to rip these up so you can start again.
Laminate floors appear to be natural hardwood floors without cost. Based on the area stated earlier, laminate flooring can last from 15 to 25 years.
Such floors are less expensive than original hardwood floors, but they’ll have to be changed more frequently and could require a Chandler dust-free tile removal company to remove them if there is dust.
With proper care, tile flooring can last for over 50 years. Glazed tile lasts a lot longer since it is better protected against everyday wear and tear and moisture, which is especially important in wet areas like kitchens and bathrooms.
Tile can be more difficult to sustain since broken tiles must be replaced. A single chipped tile can completely change the appearance of the floor. It’s wise to purchase at least 10% more tile than you’ll need for installation, so you have extras in case of chipping or damage.
