The Dos of Laminate Flooring


  • Dry mop your floor whenever you need to collect dust and debris
  • Use a microfiber cloth or a mop
  • Avoid using harsh cleaners otherwise it will diminish the quality of the laminate
  • Clean between the nooks and cracks of the flooring
  • Freeze a stubborn stain with an ice cube before gently scraping it off
  • If above tip doesn’t work, use nail polish remover and some cotton to gently rub off the stain
  • Use a water-and-vinegar solution to clean the floors
  • Place area rugs in place where there’s heavy traffic
  • Place furniture pads underneath heavy furniture to avoid grooves and scratches
  • Contact a professional in flooring or your flooring distributor if you have any questions about the product

The Don’ts of Laminate Flooring


  • Add soap to any solution when cleaning. Soap isn’t easy to clean and can make the floors sticky and slippery
  • Use any method of steaming or wet cleaning
  • Use a vacuum cleaner otherwise you will get scratches on the laminate
  • Use any cleaners that boast polishing capabilities. Also don’t use any products containing oil or wax otherwise they will leave a film of residue on the floor
  • Use commercial cleaning agents
  • Use a beater brush
  • Walk on floor with stiletto heels
