Hi there, thought I would share some tips if you have laminate flooring in your home. I find these tips helpful and found then off a website where I bought my steam cleaner. If any one else has any tips please let me know or share here.

If you are trying to maintain you laminate floor here are some maintenance tips

1) Becareful with the laminate floor cleaner that you buy. Lot of chemical based floor cleaners tend to leave behind residue and can make your flooring look dull. Invest in a steam mop so you can eliminate the need to use chemical cleaners and just steam clean your laminate flooring.


2) Sweep your laminate flooring on a daily basis to prevent dust and dirt from sticking to the surface. Sweeping on daily basis prevents you from alot of scrubbing and mopping in the future. prevents you from alot of future scrubbing and mopping.

3) do not use soap or any other household cleaner to clean your laminate floors as they leave unsightly streaks. If you have spots or stains invest in a steam mop that will help lift the stains from the floor. A steam mop is more convientent to use when you have spills and spots.

4) when you spill anything wipe it up immediately since extend period of moisture absorption can damage your laminate flooring.

5) do not wax your laminate flooring

6) use natural cleaning ingredients like vinegar, baking soda, lemon and water. Natural ingreditent such as these can help maintain your home daily with out any chemicals. You can also use all these natural ingredients with steam mop so you have the power of hot steam to wipe away dirt and refreshen your home.

Hope that helps Cheers !

Cleaning laminate flooring

If you hire an outside service to clean your laminate floor, make sure they do not use a machine like a buffer to clean the floor. The machine could ruin the laminate by buffing through the laminate and expose the underlayment. At that point you would need to replace the floor.

Thanks for sharing a good piece of info. All the tips are really commendable and very effective. Commonly apply a spongy brush attachment on the vacuum or use a swiffer style tool for picking up dust and hair. Sweep or vacuum in the direction that the pieces are laid so that you pick up all the crud between the grooves instead of trapping it in the flooring (especially if it’s mock-hardwood style that has the grooves between each “plank”).

Laminate flooring always looks good, but it requires some maintenance to keep its beauty. Proper cleaning is a must as they will attract dirt.
Thanks for sharing the great tips. It's really helpful.

For quite clean-up of spots and spills, spray with window cleaner and wipe with a soft cloth. However, do not overuse window cleaners that contain ammonia as excess ammonia can strip away the protective sealant on laminate floors.
