Daily Laminate Care
Fortunately for homeowners, laminate floors are incredibly low-maintenance. But keeping them healthy and looking great still requires some basic care. Learn more about what it takes to maintain your laminate below.
Investing in a quality broom is the key to ensuring that your laminate continues to look great and function well. Dirt, dust, and other debris can prove harmful to your laminate floors, causing scratching and scraping if left undetected, so make sure you sweep every day or every few days. You may also want to mop on a weekly basis too but do not allow the water to pool on your laminate flooring when doing so, as this can cause harm to the subfloor. Doormats will also help to keep your laminate floors looking great.
Dealing With Laminate Spills & Stains
For liquid spills, wipe up the mess in a timely manner to avoid lingering damage. Your laminate floors most likely won't stain if the liquid is left undetected, but the substance could seep through into the subfloor, causing damage there. Wipe up messes using a towel after they occur to ensure your laminate comes away unscathed.
For solid messes, find a broom and dustpan and sweep up the mess right away. Laminate is a low-maintenance flooring option, so messes and spills can be handled with considerable ease.
