How do I clean laminate floors?

If you have laminate flooring in your home, it is important to know how to clean it. Laminate flooring is recognized on the market to be one of the easiest floors to clean. With a seamless surface commonly associated with antibacterial features and resistance to wear, laminate is very low maintenance. However there are some guidelines you should follow:

General Cleaning Tips

Cleaning laminate flooring is easy to do. Wipe spills up with a damp cloth, followed by a dry cloth. Repeat this process until the spill is completely wiped up. You can use a soft-bristled vacuum on laminate flooring, just be careful the rolling wheels are clean so you don’t grind grit into your flooring, scratching it in the process. A better idea is to use a soft broom and dustpan to clean your floors. Crumbs, dirt, and hair will come up easily!

Routine Maintenance

Regular vacuuming or sweeping to clean dust and dirt is important, as collected dirt can lead to scratching overtime. Doing this daily or weekly is recommended, regardless if there has been a recent spill or accident. To help keep dirt and grit out of your home, have guests and family leave their shoes at the door and place rugs in high traffic areas. Doing this will cut down micro-scratching to the surface of your floor.

For A More Thorough Cleaning

When you want to mop your laminate, a floor cleaner like Alloc Free & Clean is recommended. This particular product has anti-microbial properties and is effective against a broad spectrum of bacteria, in addition to being fungicidal, and controlling the growth of mold and mildew and their odors. Alloc Free & Clean is the recommended floor cleaning product by Bestlaminate.

You can also use a mixture of water and vinegar to wash your floor, which also has antibacterial cleaning properties and leaves your floors fresh for days.

If you need help with tough stains like nail polish or permanent marker, it can be easily cleaned with acetone – check it out in the video below!

When purchasing cleaning products, be sure to read the label and make sure it is safe for laminate flooring. A well maintained laminate floor will last for years to come.
