Laminate floors is the king of low cost maintenance and cleaning. Laminate floors only need an occasional sweep to remove surface dirt. Dirt acts like sand paper and will scratch your laminate. To avoid this, make sure that all shoes are removed before entering your household and place welcome mats at all entrances. Sweep your floors at least once a week. Make sure that dogs and cats are clean before entering your household. Place furniture pad or gliders underneath all furniture that will be on top of laminate floors. Clean up all spills right away to avoid spills from penetrating the laminate causing it to swell and creating stains in the finish. Mopping should be used every once and awhile to bring back the shine of your laminate floors. Be careful that you don’t over saturate the floors because they will swell and expand away from the seams. Not all floor cleaner are the same. Always double check with the manufacture to see what they recommend. Before applying a cleaner, make sure to test in a small area. Sun light will fade the look of your laminate over time. Make sure that you constantly move furniture around so that fading is even throughout your floors. With proper care laminate floors, can last a lifetime.
