As we all know, a warm, cozy crackling fire in your fireplace can have a tendency to spark, pop and toss a few hot embers out for the heck of it. That’s why you should always have a fireplace screen in place to protect your home. You should also leave at least two feet between your fireplace and the laminate floor — that’s usually the size of a hearth.

But just in case a glowing ember slips through or over the screen, know that if it lands on your Swiss Krono USA laminate floor, it won’t be a problem. That’s because limited exposure to a flame won’t harm a plank.
