Laminate Care & Maintenance

Some routine care and maintenance will keep your laminate looking and performing its best for many years to come! Follow these expert tips!

Keep Your Laminate Looking New


Even if you don’t have a lot of spare time to devote to laminate cleaning and care, there are some quick and easy tasks that will do wonders to protect the look and longevity of your laminate flooring.


Preventative maintenance will go a long way to keep your laminate looking as good as new for years to come. Ask family members and guests to remove their shoes before walking across your floor. Also invest in some doormats to trap dirt and particles instead of tracking them throughout your home.

Regular Cleaning

Your laminate floor upkeep should include sweeping, vacuuming, and dry mopping. Make sure to check with your manufacturer’s care and maintenance guide, in addition to their list of approved vacuum cleaners, before caring for your flooring. 

Periodically clean the floor with cleaning products made specifically for laminate floor care.


Dealing with Spills & Stains

No matter how careful you are or how much you stick to your care and maintenance routine, your laminate will still likely experience the occasional spill or mess, especially if you have kids or pets.

Use a damp cloth to blot up spills as soon as they happen. Never allow liquids to stand on your laminate floor.

Don't use steel wool, abrasive cleaners, or strong ammoniated or chlorinated type cleaners.
