Larger than laminate life

Laminate floorings are known for their sturdiness, toughness, durability and resilience but they still require regular upkeep, cleaning and maintenance in order to enjoy a long life. This will prevent any unnecessary expenses for repairs or replacements. Spillage on the flooring should be wiped up with a paper towel or sponge immediately to prevent the liquid from delaminating or distorting the shape of the floor planks. Dirt, sand, grime or any other solids which can scratch the floor’s surface should be swept up with a broom or vacuumed immediately. Sweeping with a hard brush may scratch the surface and must be done with a broom which has soft bristles. Vacuuming is a preferred option over sweeping for such flooring.

Laminate flooring must be mopped with a floor cleaner that is specially designed to be used on such flooring. The usage of water is not recommended since liquids tend to distort the planks. To ensure that the laminate planks remain intact it must be cleaned only with special cleaning agents who will protect the flooring. Stubborn or greasy stains can be removed with nail varnish or wiped dry with a soft clean cloth. Heavy furniture should not be dragged on the floor.
