Laminate is both a cost-effective and attractive flooring option. In order to keep your laminate floors shiny and streak-free, there are some cleaning and maintenance steps you’ll need to follow. If you want your laminate floors from Allasen Carpet to last, here’s what you can do to care for them.
If anything should spill on your laminate flooring, make sure you wipe it up right away. Regular sweeping can help keep crumbs, dirt, pet hair, and other debris at bay. If sweeping isn’t cutting it, set your vacuum on a soft brush setting to get the job done without scratching the surface of your floor. Ensure you sweep or vacuum in the direction that your floor is laid to catch any lingering dirt between the interlocking pieces.
For Impressive, Shiny Laminate Flooring
When your laminate flooring is in need of a deep clean, damp mopping can do the trick. Use two buckets when mopping – one for clean water and one for dirty water. Do not soak your laminate flooring or use harsh cleaners; water can easily seep behind the baseboards and cause your floor to lift. Use a cleaner designed for laminate flooring, or make your own from 3 parts water and 1 part vinegar. If your floors are still damp after mopping, simply wipe them with a microfiber cloth for that brilliant shine you know and love!
