Protect your laminate floors with regular care and maintenance
Compared to other hard surfaces, laminate floors are remarkably low-maintenance. But keeping them healthy and strong in the long-term still requires regular care.
Placing doormats at entryways will reduce the spread of harmful dirt. Regular mopping, vacuuming, and sweeping will collect whatever the doormats don't. High-traffic spots like hallways may require more frequent attention to stay new and shiny.
DEALING WITH SPILLS
Dirt and soil don't just make a mess on your laminate, they can also dull its surface and reduce its shine. Clean up dirt right away to keep your floors healthy and new.
Laminate floors are water-resistant, so cleaning up liquid spills like water, tea, and soda are easy. But laminate floors are not fully waterproof, so clean up spills fast.
If a cleaning product is not specifically labeled for laminate, you probably shouldn't use it. The wrong cleaner can cause discoloration. When in down, consult your manufacturer's guide.
