Laminate floors are tough, but they still need some care!

While caring for your laminate flooring is a breeze, it's still important to use the correct techniques and cleaning products to prevent damage. Find out how to care for your laminate flooring to keep it looking beautiful for a long time.

Maintaining your laminate flooring

Daily care and maintenance of your laminate flooring may include sweeping, dry mopping, and vacuuming. Most spills can be wiped with a damp cloth. Puddles should be quickly taken care of so that warping does not occur. Strategically place doormats at entryways to capture dirt before it can make it onto your flooring. Protect floors from denting by placing floor protectors under heavy furniture and appliances. Do not drag anything across the floor that might scratch or damage the laminate.

For a deeper clean, use a manufacturer-approved hard floor cleaner as needed. When dealing with difficult or oil-based stains, consult with the manufacturer's guidelines on cleaning these types of messes.
