Laminate Care

Laminate is a low-maintenance flooring that won't require too much upkeep to look its great consistently. By establishing a laminate cleaning routine and sticking to it, you can help guarantee high performance and longevity with regard to your laminate. 

For laminate, sweeping is the name of the name. By investing in a broom and putting it to use on a regular basis, you can help to remove dirt and other debris that will cause wear and tear to your laminate floors. How often you need to sweep will depend on the foot-traffic in the room in question. 

It is also recommended that you mop your floors with a damp mop as needed. Ensure the mop is damp as opposed to wet, as too much water can harm your laminate floors.

Dirt & Debris

When it comes to dirt and other solid debris on your laminate floors, the cleanup process is as simple as obtaining a broom and dustpan and putting them to work. Sweep up solid messes immediately after they occur to avoid long-term damage to your laminate floors. Solid messes are never going to be a major cause for concern with laminate.

Tough Stains

For liquid spills or challenging stains, the key is to act fast. The longer a substance sits on your laminate floors, the more likely it is to cause lingering damage. So when you have a coffee, wine, or any other kind of spill or mishap, address it immediately to avoid long-term damage. Typically, this can be done with a simple cloth. For more complex messes, consult your manufacturer.
