Establish a routine
Although laminate is durable and easy to care for, it’s important to establish a good maintenance routine. With the right steps, you'll keep your laminate looking and performing its best for many years to come.
Daily care & maintenance
Strategically place doormats at all your home’s entryways to capture any dirt or debris before it is tracked onto your floor. Also, protect your floor from denting by placing floor protectors under heavy furniture and appliances. Avoid dragging anything across the floor that will scratch or damage the laminate surface.
Daily care should include sweeping, dry mopping, and vacuuming as needed. For a deeper clean, use cleaning products approved by your manufacturer.
Dealing with spills and stains
Most messes can simply be wiped away with a damp cloth. Spills should be wiped up quickly to avoid stains. When it comes to difficult to clean materials like candle wax, chewing gum, or oil-based stains like lipstick and olive oil, consult with your manufacturer’s guidelines for the appropriate cleaning steps.
