Laminate Flooring is designed to be more durable, but it still needs proper care. Follow these simple tips to protect your floors so they can look great for years to come.

Laminate Flooring Basic Cleaning

  • Use only soap-free cleaners.
  • Remove loose dirt with a dust mop or a gentle vacuum without a beater bar.
  • Wipe up spills right away.
  • Use a quality Laminate floor cleaner - be sure to follow the directions on the bottle.
  • Dust or vacuum more often in problem spots and areas with a lot of foot traffic.
  • Only use cleaners that are designated for Laminate Flooring, and be careful not to saturate the floor with the cleaner as it could cause damage. Try the cleaner in a small inconspicuous area first.
  • Do not clean using excessive water as it could cause your Flooring to buckle or separate.
  • Certain cleaners can scratch the surface of your Laminate Flooring, such as steel wool or scouring powders. Do not use them to clean your Flooring.
  • Liquids that stand on your Flooring can cause damage.
  • Never wax, polish or use buffing machines.

Stain and Spot Removal Tips

Accidents and spills will happen. The good news is that Laminate Flooring can be cleaned. But if you’re faced with a tough stain or spot, follow these simple steps:

  1. Remove wet spills immediately.
  2. Wipe the floor with a warm moist cloth.
  3. More stubborn dirt can be removed using a slightly moist mop and gentle cleaner designed for Laminate Flooring.
  4. For substances that may stick to your floor, try to harden the spot with ice and gently remove with a dull plastic scraper. Be sure not to apply too much pressure as this could damage the floor’s finish.
  5. Always follow manufacturer recommendations
