Laminate Floors Cleaning Tips

  • Sweep, dust, or vacuum the floor regularly with the hard floor attachment (not the beater bar) to prevent accumulation of dirt and grit that can scratch or dull the floor finish.
  • For tough spots, such as oil, paint, markers, lipstick, ink or tar, use acetone/nail polish remover on a clean white cloth. Then wipe the area with a slightly damp cloth to remove any remaining residue. First test the method in a small less conspicuous area of the floor.
  • For spots such as candle wax or chewing gum, harden the spot with ice and then gently scrape with a plastic scraper, such as a credit card. Be careful not to scratch the flooring surface. Wipe clean with a slightly damp cloth.
  • Use a dry cloth to blot up spills as soon as they happen. Never allow liquids to stand on your floor for extended periods of time.
  • Periodically clean the floor with cleaning products made specifically for laminate floor care. Spray the cleaner onto a dry swiffer or a microfiber mop, rather than spraying directly on to the floor.
  • Do not use cleaning products such as Swiffer Wet Jet or Vileda Pro Mist that spray liquid directly onto the floor.
  • Do not over use steam cleaners or wet mops, which may cause irreparable damage to your floor.
  • Do not wash or wet mop the floor with soap, water, oil-soap detergent or any other liquid cleaning product. This could cause swelling, warping, delamination, and joint-line separation, and void the warranty.
  • Avoid using steel wool, abrasive cleaners, or strong ammoniated or chlorinated type cleaners.
  • Do not use any type of buffing or polishing machine on your laminate floors.
  • A more frequent dust-mopping or vacuuming schedule may be required in very sandy areas such as a beachside home.
