Here is a image of a floor I laid about two weeks ago for one of my customers. She called me today to let me know what a great job I did and she said "you might think Im a little crazy, but since the floor has been laid in my bedroom I can breathe a little better" I explained to her that isnt crazy at all, the carpet you had before is actually enviromental and it is not safe for you . It is made up of plastic, and collects dust and ordors. The laminate floor is alot better because it does not trap any of the things listed above. I also told her that I am glad and happy you are satisfied with the floor and happy that she could breathe a little better.
