It’s not hard to take care of laminate flooring—there are just a few easy maintenance steps. Regularly following these tips will ensure that your hardwood continues to look as beautiful as the day it was installed.
Laminate floors are built for busy lifestyles and active families. Many products include waterproof finishes and wear-resistant surfaces to make care easy. But no matter how easy, a regular cleaning routine is necessary!
Sweep, dust, or vacuum the floor regularly with the hard floor attachment (not the beater bar) to prevent the accumulation of dirt and grit that can scratch or dull the floor finish.
Periodically clean the floor with cleaning products made specifically for laminate floor care.
Use a damp cloth to blot up spills as soon as they happen. Never allow liquids to stand on your floor.
For tough spots, such as oil, paint, markers, lipstick, ink, or tar, use acetone/nail polish remover on a clean white cloth, then wipe the area with a damp cloth to remove any remaining residue.
Do not use steel wool, abrasive cleaners, or strong ammoniated or chlorinated type cleaners.
