How to Care for Your Laminate
Although laminate is durable and easy to care for, a little routine maintenance won't hurt. In fact, it'll keep your laminate looking and performing its best for many years to come.
Laminate Preventative Maintenance & More
Be sure to place doormats at the entry to the rooms to capture any dirt or debris before it's tracked onto your floor. Also, you can protect your floor form indentations by placing floor protectors under heavy furniture and appliances. Also avoid dragging anything across the floor that will scratch or damage the laminate.
Regular care should include sweeping, dry mopping, and vacuuming as needed. For a deeper clean, use a manufacturer-approved cleaning product only.
Dealing with Spills & Stains
Most messes on laminate floors can simply be wiped away with a damp cloth. Spills should be cleaned up quickly, because your floor can be slippery when wet.
When it comes to difficult stains such as candle wax and chewing gum or oil-based stains like lipstick and olive oil, consult with the manufacturer’s guidelines for cleaning up these types of messes.
