Your Laminate Floor: Care And Maintenance Has Never Been Easier

Laminate flooring has a well-earned reputation for being long lasting and easy to care for. In fact, laminate flooring may be the best long-term value in floor covering, if you consider the low maintenance cost and low purchase price.

It's very easy to keep your new laminate floor looking great. Believe it or not, dry mopping and vacuuming are all that's needed for routine cleaning!

Sand and grit are the big offenders that will damage the surface of your laminate floor. Just vacuum them up right away to prevent scratching.

Also, clean up liquid spills as soon as you can. You want to keep the liquid from sinking into the joints between the planks. Here's how to keep your laminate floor looking like new for many years to come:


  • Wipe up spills immediately.
  • Use a vacuum cleaner with a wand attachment or dust mop to remove loose dust and soil. Purchase the manufacturer-recommended laminate flooring cleaner available at
  • Use plain water on a clean cloth to remove sticky dirt, then wipe with a dry cloth.
  • Use a plastic scraper to gently remove items like gum or candle wax, then use plain water on a clean cloth to remove any residue. After that, dry the area with a clean cloth.
  • Use floor mats or throw rugs at entrances and in front of your kitchen sink and refrigerator. These will attract soil and keep it off your floor.
  • Use protective felt pads on chairs and furniture legs, also available on
  • Whenever you move refrigerators, stoves or other furniture and appliances, protect your laminate floor with plywood or masonite. Use proper furniture moving equipment.
  • In the unlikely event that some of your laminate floor gets damaged beyond repair, you can easily replace that part of the floor if you've kept some extra pieces on hand to use for repairs.


  • Wet mop your laminate flooring.
  • Wax your laminate floor. It never needs waxing.
  • Use a broom - it can drag grit across the floor and scratch the surface.
  • Use soap, detergent, oil soaps, ammonia-based cleaners, bleach, wax, polish and, or abrasive soap powders.
  • Let water or liquid of any type sit on your laminate floor for any length of time.
