Laminate Flooring Cleaning

Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring cleaning is easy with a vacuum or broom. Mop with a slightly damp mop, or better yet, use laminate floor cleaner. No floor polish is ever necessary for laminate floors. Avoid excessive water when mopping, which can seep into the joints between flooring panels, as a result causing swelling. Laminate flooring will not handle standing pools of water, which often appear in bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. For areas with heavy moisture, you need an impervious surface, such as vinyl or porcelain tile.

Laminate flooring has a wear layer that protects the photographic layer underneath. As a result, it somewhat resistant to scratches and dents. Depending on the brand and AC rating it is very resistant to stains. Some manufacturers even issue very generous 25+ year warranty on the wear layer itself. If you do get a stain, laminate flooring cleaning is usually easy to clean, wipe off with a damp cloth.

Laminate flooring will not stain, fade, dent, or scratch easily. In conclusion, most people set their expectations too high. As a result, they expect that entry level floors will perform under heavy traffic conditions and still look good for the duration of the warranty. We advise clients with heavy traffic areas to use a European quality laminate floor. This will ensure that you obtain maximum use from our laminate flooring specials.

Laminate flooring requires very minimal after care cleaning. Bearing in mind, it is designed for easy maintenance for countries where people can afford domestic helpers. Just a quick sweep with a microfiber mop is all that is required. The more you try and cleaning your laminate flooring, the greater the risk of damaging the flooring.
