Regular Laminate Care
Some of today’s newer laminate flooring includes waterproof finishes, but most do not, so your care and maintenance routine must comply with the manufacturer’s guidelines.
At Brian’s Flooring & Design, we recommend the following care and maintenance routine for your new laminate floors.
Daily care and maintenance of your laminate flooring could include sweeping, dry mopping, or vacuuming with a hard surface flooring attachment.
Practice preventative laminate flooring maintenance by using doormats at the entry to the room to capture any dirt, sand, or grime that could be tracked onto your flooring.
Protect your flooring from dents or marks by placing heavy appliances on mats. And add an area rug or two for stylish protection of your laminate flooring.
Laminate Spill or Stain?
For difficult stains and messes like candle wax and chewing gum, or oil-based stains like lipstick and olive oil, consult with the manufacturer’s guidelines for cleaning tough stains and messes.
Many of these tougher stains have simple solutions like using nail polish remover or freezing with ice before gently scraping away with a plastic scraper.
