How To Take Care Of Your Laminate Floors

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.
