For the laminate cleaning- to prevent the surface from sticking while you are cleaning, use a microfiber.
It has a very good absorption capacity.

I agree with some of them. Use safe and best floor cleaners. Also use proper tools to clean your floor i.e a mop paired with a machine washable, microfiber pad for dusting and cleaning.

Keep your floor away from harsh chemicals that would affect babies, pets and the floor itself. Moping atleast once a week is a must to maintain your floors in a good condition.
I hope you are not using the boiling water directly on hardwood floors! A lot of water, and especially HOT water, will ruin them.

Laminate floors can be difficult to clean due to water marks that get left. They dont like a lot of water, either, and a lot of water can damage them. What I do - and I am still learning - is vacuum opften (true for ALL floors!) and DAMP mop using a cleaner formulated for laminates. I have also used high quality all purpose cleaners on them and it came out fine. One of my customers likes me to use Murphy's Oil soap. I dont care for the stuff, but that is what he likes, so I use it. I felt it left the floor sticky and less shiny.

Edges are hand scrubbed, as are stairs.


Clean up spills immediately.
Vacuum or dust mop your floor once a week, or more, if needed.
Place mats at every entrance to protect against dirt or debris as well as moisture to prevent it from being tracked onto the floor.
Place runners and area rugs (with slip-resistant backings) along high-traffic areas.
Prevent damage to your floor by avoiding movement of heavy appliances and furniture on the floor by using hard, narrow furniture rollers with wide rubber rollers.
Area rugs are recommended in front of kitchen sinks, at all pivot points and within high-traffic areas.
Minimize damage to your floor from direct sunlight.


Never use any of the following products on your floor: acrylic finishes, wax based products, detergents, ammonia based products, bleach, or polishes and oil soaps. Never use abrasive cleaning soaps or acidic materials such as vinegar.
Never allow water to stand on your floor for any length of time..
Avoid using rubber or non breathable materials for your mats.
Never use vacuums with the beater bars enabled.
Thank you for sharing this tips.

I would just like to add that floor maintenance is a critical step thatís often overlooked, whether you work in a small house or office space. I think proper floor care is essential and also we can use various floor cleaning equipment too.
