Laminate Floor Care Tips
Homeowners choose laminate flooring when they want a beautiful floor that’s long-lasting and low maintenance. Follow these simple steps for cleaning your laminate floor.
The versatility of laminate flooring is what makes it a favorite with homeowners who want a beautiful floor that’s long-lasting and easy to clean. To get the performance you want from your laminate floor, follow these simple steps.
Routine cleaning for your laminate floor
Your scratch resistant laminate floor is extremely durable, but everyday dirt and grit could eventually lead to fine scratches that can dull the surface. Regularly dust mop or vacuum laminate flooring with a soft brush or wood floor attachment to pick up dust and grit. You can also use a slightly damp mop for spot cleaning.
Clean up liquid spills as soon as they occur with a cloth or sponge. Don’t allow excess liquids or wet areas – including your pet’s water bowl – to pool on the floor or they may stain or damage your floor’s protective wear layer.
For occasional thorough cleaning, use a well-squeezed mop dampened with Armstrong Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner. A light mopping is all you need!
Don’t use soap-based detergents or "mop and shine" products as these can leave a dull film on the surface of your laminate floor.
