Care and maintenance tips for Laminate Flooring
Laminate flooring is well known for its easy maintenance. Nevertheless, correct and appropriate use of cleaning agents and proper methods is necessary to prolong its lifespan and maintain the exceptional appearance of your flooring for decades.
Stains from normal use, scuff marks from shoes, pencil marks and dirt stains are all easily removed without trace.
Indentations and scratches:
Rarely will furniture leave any indentations behind. However, in order to prevent additional damage, furniture should not be dragged or pushed across the surface, rather lifted and put into place. For chairs, we highly recommend affixing felt pads or soft rubber castors to the legs.
- Use a vacuum cleaner with a soft parquet brush or dry electrostatic dust cloths that attract dirt,
dust and hair like a magnet.
- Standing water should be avoided at all costs. Take extra caution in areas with flowerpots, vases, and near water faucets.
- When cleaning, make sure the cloth is damp, not soaking wet.
- If you use any cleaning agents while cleansing the floor, make sure that all residues are removed.
- Please never use cleaning agents that contain wax or oil. These materials are not able to penetrate the surface of the laminate flooring forming a film that attracts dirt like a magnet.
- Kindly select the correct cleaning agent for your laminate flooring

It only takes a few simple care and maintenance steps to keep your resilient floor looking beautiful for years to come. To keep your floor clean, following these proper care and maintenance guidelines:
Cleaning and maintenance tips:
- Sweep the floor regularly with a soft bristle broom to remove loose dirt.
- Wash the floor with non-abrasive, neutral PH floor cleaner.
- For everyday maintenance, a mop moistened with warm water will suffice.
- Spills should be cleaned up immediately.
- Ensure furniture legs have large surface, non-staining plastic floor protectors or non- staining felt pads. The protectors should be at least one inch in diameter and rest flat on the floor. The heavier the item, the wider the floor protector should be. Replace small, narrow metal or dome-shaped glides with smooth, flat glides that are in flat contact with the floor.
- Heavy furniture or appliances that are not moved often should be equipped with flat, non-staining composition furniture or cups of appropriate size.
- Do not use the following on your vinyl flooring:
- Soap based detergents
- Abrasive or mop and shine products
- Floor wax
- Vacuum cleaners with a rotating beater bars
- Ammonia or bleaches
- Never push, pull or drag furniture, appliances or other items across the floor. When moving furniture or heavy items, always lift and carry the items. Place hardboards between the flooring and object to move.
- Unless instructed otherwise, use a clean, white cloth or towel with products recommended for vinyl flooring. Always rinse the affected/stained area with clean water after treatment
