Laminate Care & Maintenance

Keep your laminate looking its best by following our care & maintenance guide. 

Daily Laminate Care

For homeowners looking to install beautiful new laminate flooring, you're in luck because laminate is a low-maintenance flooring option. Simply by remaining diligent with your sweeping and cleaning up messes and spills in a timely manner, you can help to guarantee that your laminate flooring withstands the test of time.

The most simple way to maintain your laminate floors is to invest in a high-quality broom and put it to use on a daily, or semi-regular basis. More on that later.

Basic Laminate Maintenance & Stain Guide

  • Place doormats or walk-off mats at each entryway to collect excessive moisture and dirt
  • Sweep, dust-mop, or vacuum (without a beater bar) your floor to remove loose dirt and grit
  • Periodically use a damp mop to restore your floor's shine
  • Purchase a laminate cleaner specifically made by the manufacturer for your particular floor
  • After damp mopping, use a clean, dry cloth to soak up excess moisture
  • Use floor protectors on the bottom of your furniture and when moving furniture, lift rather than drag it across your floor
  • Never use abrasive cleaners, steel wool, or scouring powder
  • Never use soap-based detergents or “mop and shine” products
  • Never flood your laminate floor with water or cleaners
  • Never attempt to sand or refinish your laminate floor
