DAILY LAMINATE CARE
Daily care plays a vital role in maintaining the beauty and longevity of your laminate floors. Start by implementing a routine to sweep and dry mop regularly to remove loose dirt and debris, which can wear down your laminate or can cause scratches. Most laminate can be damp mopped, but be sure not to allow water to stand or pool, which can damage your floors. Placing doormats at entrances minimizes the amount of dirt tracked onto the laminate. If you have pets, be sure to keep their nails trimmed to prevent scratching.
By incorporating these easy habits, you can preserve the pristine condition of your laminate and enjoy its style and incredible performance for years to come.
Unfortunately, no matter how careful you are, spills are inevitable. It is important to act quickly to prevent staining. Simply blot up any liquid with a clean cloth and sweep any solids. Use a clean, damp cloth to remove any residue, but be careful not to let water stand.
Before using any cleaning solution or stain remover on your laminate floors you should consult your manufacturer's guide to ensure you don't damage your floors or void any warranties. Be sure not to let moisture or a cleaning solution stand as it can damage your floors.
No matter how careful you are or how resillient laminate flooring is, over time minor scratches may happen. Thankfully most areas can be fixed easily at home without much effort. You can use pencils or other items made for laminate for minor scratches, putty for deeper scratches, and wax for the worst damage. You will just need to match the right color or mix hues to create the right color.
