You'll find laminate easy to care for. However, there are a few things you'll want to keep in mind if you want to keep it looking and performing its very best for a long time to come!
Daily care & maintenance
Simply sweep, dry mop, and vacuum your flooring as needed. Keep in mind that most laminate products are not fully moisture-resistant unless otherwise specified by the manufacturer and should therefore not be wet mopped. When vacuuming, use the hard surface attachment. Avoid using steel wool or a buffing or polishing machine on your laminate, as it could result in scratches or other surface damage.
Dealing with spills
If you have a spill, blot it up immediately with a clean cloth. Don't let moisture sit on your flooring, as laminate is a wood-based product and might warp. Periodically wipe your flooring with cleaning products made specifically for wood flooring.
For tougher or more complex stains that don't simply wipe away or leave a residue, you might need a more powerful cleaning solution. If so, consult your manufacturer's guidelines or give us a call at Messina's Flooring for recommendations.
