Are there any safety hazards to laminate flooring?

Slippery When Wet

Laminate flooring repels moisture, but this also means it can become very slippery when wet. Be sure to allow ample time for drying after you've washed the floor. If there are any wet spills, wipe them up immediately. Wet feet from boots and shoes can also cause the floors to become slippery. Leave a mat at the entrance of your doorway to absorb tracked-in wetness. Wipe any wetness away immediately. Finally, laminate floors in kitchens are most susceptible to hidden wet spots. Dropped ice cubes or splattered dish water can cause a real hazard. Be aware and wipe up moisture right away.
