Daily care & maintenance
There's a lot to love about laminate, such as its durability and resistance to scratching as well as moisture. However, it will still need a little TLC, as any other flooring solution does, to prolong its appearance and functionality for years to come.
First, establish a preventative care routine. Invest in doormats to keep dirt off your flooring and consider using area rugs or furniture protectors to prevent denting. Next, incorporate some daily cleaning. Sweep, dry mop, and vacuum your floors daily or weekly!
Dealing with spills
While many laminate products on the market today are partially or even completely waterproof, some are not. Laminate is, after all, a wood-based product. Therefore, it requires similar treatment to hardwood when dealing with spills or liquid messes.
To prevent stains or potential damage from prolonged exposure to moisture, act quickly and wipe up wet spills immediately. If dealing with a more stubborn stain, use a warm damp cloth and a manufacturer-approved cleaning solution safe for use on wood flooring. Always follow your manufacturer's specifications!
