Laminate floors are very durable but not indestructible. Dirt can be abrasive and cause floors to dull. Avoid this by sweeping with a good broom, dust mopping, or vacuuming (without a beater bar) regularly to remove loose dirt and grit.
Vacuum cleaner attachments are very effective in picking up dirt from between planks and along edges. Using a damp (not wet) mop occasionally is also suggested; however, your laminate flooring can expand if excessive water is used while cleaning. After damp mopping, a clean dry cloth should be used to wipe your floor thoroughly.
Place area rugs or doormats at each entry to collect excess moisture and dirt before they enter your home.
- Minimize scratching by using glides or floor protectors on the bottom of your furniture.
- Always lift heavy furniture instead of dragging or pulling across laminate floors. Use pieces of carpet face down under heavy objects when moving them across your floor.
- Use the manufacturer's recommended products for spot cleaning and occasional complete cleaning of your laminate floor.
- Never use abrasive cleaners, steel wool, or scouring powder.
- Do not use soap-based detergents or "mop-and-shine" products.
- Water will damage laminates. Never flood your floor with water or cleaner.
- Do not wax or polish your laminate floor.
- Never try to refinish or sand your laminate floor.
- Remember, laminate is durable but not indestructible. Your laminate floor can be damaged by stiletto heels.
- For additional care procedures please refer to the Manufacturer's Care & Maintenance Instructions and Recommendations.
