Flooring problems occur on a frequent basis. Just as there are many varieties of flooring from wood and bamboo to carpet, laminate and resilient floor coverings, there are many different types of flooring problems. There is not a single cause of flooring problems or floor covering failures. Yet there is a cause of every floor covering problem as we will discuss in this article.
Flooring Problems the Cause
With any installed floor product the condition of concern may be due to a manufacturing error, faulty installation, site related condition, maintenance related condition or other cause.
With hardwood, bamboo and laminate common flooring problems are moisture or site related. While manufacturing defects are a less common there are real problems such as failure to meet standards, finish and delamination and these need to be addressed and preferably early on.
With resilient floor covering products the more common flooring problems are site and maintenance related. While installation and manufacturing problems are not as common as they are with some flooring products they frequently exist. Warranty issues with resilient and all floor covering problems need to be addressed on a timely basis.
When the cause of flooring problems is not obvious, there is often a dispute. Prior to or at the time of a dispute an independent, non-bias floor covering inspector will often be engaged to determine the cause of the flooring problems.
