Supreme Click - Laminate Flooring 101

Our Supreme Click Laminate is one of the most popular products in hard surface floors. It is extremely durable, easy to maintain, and can withstand the traffic and wear of a busy household. It is a man-made surface, and it comes in a wide variety of styles and textures that are virtually identical to natural hardwood, stone or tile at a fraction of the cost.

Consumers are captured with the idea that Supreme Click Laminate is not only more affordable than natural wood, it often far exceeds hardwood in durability and wear resistance.

In addition to its other benefits, Supreme Click Laminate flooring is environmentally-friendly since it is mostly composed of recyclable materials, and is classified as a low VOC (volatile organic components) emissions product.


We have refined our Supreme Click Laminate to resist many common types of wear such as indentations, scratches, stains, burns and fading. Supreme Click Laminate also comes with many advantages for the consumer, several of which are substantiated by a 2006 Consumer Report which stated that, "laminates typically lasted twice as long as solid-wood flooring before their surface began showing wear."

Care and Maintenance

Its quick and simple upkeep is a key benefit of our Supreme Click Laminate. As with any flooring product, it is important to know proper cleaning practices.

  • Use cleaning products recommended by the manufacturer
  • Keep the floor free of dirt and moisture
  • Use a dry mop, vacuum, broom or damp cloth to clean
  • Use alcohol or acetone to treat tough stains or stuck objects
  • Use gentle scraping for stuck objects like tar, gum or wax
  • Carry heavy furniture across it
  • Place doormats by entryways to reduce tracked-in dirt and moisture
  • Use felt pads under any furniture that will sit on the laminate floor.
  • Saturate the surface with water
  • Use soap, abrasive detergents or scouring pads like steel wool
  • Wax, polish, sand or resurface it
  • Use a vacuum with a beater brush
  • Drag heavy furniture across it
  • Use nylon pads on the feet of your furniture; it will react negatively with the aluminum oxide in the surface layer.
