Tips for Cleaning Laminate Flooring


What’s the best way to keep laminate flooring looking fresh? Here are a few tips on floor cleaning from the professionals at The Carpet Center in Conway, AR.

Is your floor due for a good cleaning? The professionals at The Carpet Center offer top quality steam floor cleaning right here in Conway, AR. We’ll have your floor looking new in no time.

Tip 1: Remove dust and debris daily.

Your laminate flooring is well equipped to handle the everyday dust that settles and the dirt that is tracked in by shoes. But these debris can cause scratches if left alone.

Sweep your floor with a soft bristled broom or dry sweeper. There is no need to use water or a cleaning solution on your laminate flooring on a daily basis.

Tip 2: Remove the beater bar if you want to vacuum your laminate flooring.

Many homeowners find it easier to clean with a vacuum. A vacuum will work great for your laminate flooring. Just make sure it’s set to a hardwood floor setting that will not use a beater bar. The beater bar that brushes the carpet to help release stubborn dirt may scratch your laminate flooring.

Tip 3: Clean spills as soon as possible.

Laminate flooring can handle your everyday spills and messes. Just make sure to clean them up as soon as you catch them. Wipe up as much as you can with a clean cloth. If the spill proves to be difficult and needs more than just a wipe to be removed, it’s time to put your cleaning products to good use.

Tip 4: Always apply the cleaning solution to the mop, never the surface of the floor.

One of the benefits of laminate flooring is that it is easy to clean. It won’t take you much time to give your floor a much needed cleaning after a long week.

When you clean, make sure to apply the floor cleaning solution of your choice to the mop before using it. Spraying laminate flooring directly with a cleaner could cause discoloration.

Tip 5: Use a microfiber mop.

There are other great kinds of mops you can use to clean your laminate flooring. We recommend using a microfiber mop. The tough-but-gentle fibers will work to get your floor clean with only a small amount of water.

Use a safe cleaning solution for the stains and difficult to clean areas of the floor.
