September 7, 2007, Newsletter Issue #80: Replacing a Plank in Your Laminate Floors

Tip of the Week

If you have a damaged plank of laminate flooring that is driving you crazy, don't waste any more time thinking about it. You can replace that piece of laminate flooring with little effort. Locate the closest access point to the edge of the plank. In other words, the nearest wall or end spot. Once you have found your access point, you will need to begin lifting the planks that are between the damaged plank and the access point. Because of the sturdiness of today's snap lock floors, you don't have to worry, they will fit back together just fine when you are done. Now, take a replacement board which you should have left over from when the floors were first laid. Insert the replacement board into the spot and snap it into place. Now go ahead and snap back in all of the boards which you had to pull up. You're done! If you still think that replacing a section of damaged laminate flooring is too much for you, contact a professional flooring company to come out and get it done for you. Just don't let the damage get any worse or could need to replace far more than you bargained for.
