Laminates have become an essential part of our home and office decor. Just look around yourself, any furniture, doors, counter tops, even restroom cubicles, for all these things we use laminates in some or the other form as they are great value for the money you’ve spent on procuring them. Therefore, laminates indeed form a very important part of our home decor with added advantages of durability and style. But there are certain precautions that we need to take at our end to ensure these laminates last longer and keep on radiating the same everlasting vibrance around our spaces. Want to know how to keep the laminates look ever beautiful? Read below to find out few tips on handling laminates.

First useful tip to keep your decorative laminates ever glowing is to keep them away from harsh chemicals. Harsh chemicals such as floor and oven cleaners have very strong components that, if applied directly over the decorative laminates, may affect their look by decolorizing them. Sometimes while we are working, the drain cleaner or the oven cleaner might just spill over the decorative laminates surface or your laminate counter top in that case remove the chemical immediately, wipe it off the surface of your laminate counter top and rinse and dry the decorative laminate surface.

The next important thing you must ensure is to keep very hot objects away from your laminate counter tops. You must protect decorative laminate surface from heat generating appliances like microwave and induction stoves. Instead use trivet or insulated pad with your appliances so that the laminate counter top is not directly affected.

Along with these it is also important that you protect your laminates from sharp objects. Never use knives and sharp objects on the surface of your decorative laminates. Kitchen laminates counter tops are made differently and have high abrasion resistance, but decorative laminates for other purposes are not made with the same functionality. Therefore, keep sharp objects away from them.

Last but not the least; impact monitoring is equally important especially when it comes to high pressure laminates. Be careful not to drop heavy objects or hammer directly on the surface of your high pressure laminates. Even though the high pressure laminates have high impact resistance chipping or cracking may still occur as a result. So be careful when you use hammers to fix a nail, high impact of the hammer may crack the surface of the decorative laminates thereby making it appear ugly.
