You'll find laminate easy to care for. However, there are a few things you'll want to keep in mind if you want to keep it looking and performing its very best for a long time to come!
Daily care & maintenance
Simply sweep, dry mop, and vacuum your flooring as needed. Keep in mind that most laminate products are not fully moisture-resistant unless otherwise specified by the manufacturer and should therefore not be wet mopped. When vacuuming, use the hard surface attachment. Avoid using steel wool or a buffing or polishing machine on your laminate.
Dealing with spills
If you have a spill, blot it up immediately with a clean cloth. Don't let moisture sit on your flooring, as laminate is a wood-based product and might warp. Periodically wipe your flooring with cleaning products made specifically for wood flooring.
For tough spots left by wax, gum, oil, paint, markers, lipstick, ink, or tar, you may need a more powerful cleaning solution. Consult your manufacturer’s guidelines or give us a call at McGrew’s for recommendations.
