Laminate flooring is incredibly durable, but like any floor, it requires care to maintain its beauty. Taking proper care of your laminate floors will reward you and your home for years to come. Here’s some advice to keep your laminate floors looking their very best:
Dust and dirt act as an abrasive on a laminate’s surface and seriously dull its appearance. This fact of life can be avoided by regular sweeping, dust mopping or vacuuming to remove loose dirt and grime. Either a broom or a vacuum cleaner without a beater bar will do the trick. Vacuum cleaner attachments are useful to capture dust and dirt between planks or along edges.
An occasional damp mopping is also recommended. But be careful — laminate flooring can expand when it comes in contact with excessive water. After a damp mopping, a clean cloth should be used to wipe the floor dry.
Placing doormats at each entryway is also a good idea to collect excessive moisture and dirt before they enter your home.
