Laminate Flooring Cleaning and Care Tips

  • Never leave any amounts of liquids (water, juices, soft drinks, alcohol, etc.) on the floor for more than the time necessary to clean the spill. Immediately wipe up wet areas from spills, foreign substances or wet shoes.
     
  • Don’t use any cleaning agents containing wax, oil or polish. Leftover residue from these agents can leave a dull film on the floor.
     
  • Don’t use steel wool or scouring powder, which could scratch the floor.
     
  • Use either a natural or colorfast doormat outside and inside each entrance to your home to prevent dirt, sand, grit and other substances from being tracked onto the floor.
     
  • Use wide-bearing, non-staining floor protectors such as hard plastic or felt pad protectors under chair and table legs.
     
  • Never use a floor steam cleaner, which could harm your floor and void your warranty
