Basic Laminate Floor Care

By following these basic tips, you can maintain the beauty of your laminate floors for many years.

Laminate Floor Care

  • Never flood the floor with water.
  • Do not use soap-based detergents, as these may leave a dull finish on your floor.
  • Do not use abrasive cleaners, steel wool or scouring powder, as these may scratch your floor.
  • Never wax, polish, sand or lacquer a Laminate Floor.
  • Use doormats outside each entrance to your home to prevent dirt, sand, grit and other substances such as oil, asphalt and driveway sealer from being tracked onto your floor.
  • For furnishings, use wide-bearing, non-staining floor protectors, such as clear, hard plastic or non-staining felt protectors, for heavy furnishings.
  • Promptly remove all liquid spills including pet urine.
