Laminate floor care guide

  • Vacuum regularly - Vacuum using a soft bristle brush attachment. Place long bristle welcome mats at all outside entrances for people to wipe their feet on before walking on your floors.
  • Light damp mop - Most laminate floors may be lightly damp mopped when needed. Avoid standing water, as this may cause the seams between the planks to peak.
  • Use the proper chair glides - Narrow wheels, sharp wooden legs or metal furniture legs can scratch your floors. Any furniture that rests directly on top of a laminate floor should have floor protectors or wide furniture coasters under all feet.
  • Don't use oil soaps - There are many over-the-counter oil-based soaps that will leave a dull finish on your floor.
  • Trim pet's claws regularly - Even though laminate floors are durable, pet claws may scratch the surface if they are not trimmed regularly.
  • Never wax a laminate floor - Laminate floors have a very dense surface and floor waxes will not stick to the surface.
  • Wipe spills immediately - When liquids get spilled on your laminate floor, use a slightly damp white cloth or paper towel to immediately blot up and dry the affected area. For more difficult spots, follow the manufacturer's recommended cleaning procedures.
  • Follow the manufacturer's recommendations - The best suggestion is to only use the manufacturer's recommended cleaning products on your floor.
