Daily care & maintenance
Laminate is easy to care for, but it still requires a little TLC as any other flooring solution does. Regular care will prolong its appearance, functionality, and durability for many years to come!
First, establish a preventative care routine. Invest in doormats to keep dirt off your flooring and consider using area rugs or furniture protectors to prevent denting. Next, incorporate some daily cleaning. Sweep, dry mop, and vacuum your floors daily or weekly! Keep in mind that while some laminate products are waterproof, most are not, so you will need to care for them similarly as you would hardwood. Don't wet mop, and take care to keep your flooring dry.
Dealing with spills
To prevent stains, act quickly and wipe up wet spills immediately. Always follow the manufacturer's specifications! If dealing with a more stubborn stain, use a warm damp cloth or mop your flooring. Make sure you consult your manufacturer's care guidelines if needed.
