Live the laminate life

Laminate floorings are known for their sturdiness, toughness, durability and resilience. However they still require regular upkeep, cleaning and maintenance for their longevity. This helps to prevent any unnecessary expenses which may then occur 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. It I recommended that if there is dirt, sand, grime or any other materials which can scratch the floor then they should be swept up with a broom or vacuumed immediately.

Sweeping the floor with a hard brush may scratch the surface so it must be done with a broom with soft bristles. Vacuuming is a preferred option over sweeping on such floorings. Laminate flooring care suggests that it must be mopped with a floor cleaner that is specially designed for such surfaces. Water is not recommended since liquids tend to distort the planks. In order 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.
