Laminate Care & Maintenance

Keep your laminate looking its best with our care & maintenance guide. 

Daily Laminate Care

Laminate offers simple care & maintenance. Learning how to care for your laminate floors properly can guarantee that they look great for the foreseeable future. 

The first step in maintaining your laminate flooring is investing in a broom and putting it to use regularly. By actively working to remove dirt, dust, and other debris from your laminate, you can ensure that it consistently looks great.

We also recommend door mats at the entrances of your home and asking your guests to remove their shoes before walking on your laminate floors. Limiting dirt and outside debris from entering your home is key to maintaining your laminate flooring. Learn more about laminate maintenance below!

Keep your laminate flooring looking great with preventative maintenance! Sweeping and brooming your laminate floors regularly will keep them looking great. Placing mats at the entrances of your home, utilizing area rugs, and encouraging guests to remove their shoes would also be beneficial.

With laminate, spills are not a cause for major concern so long as you address them in a timely manner. Simply by grabbing a cloth and wiping up the mess, you can help to guarantee that no lingering damage occurs. For difficult stains and messes like candle wax and chewing gum, consult with the manufacturer.

You should mop your laminate floors every couple of months to ensure they consistently look their best. When you do so, opt for a dry mop or wring out your regular mop until it is almost dry. Too much water could harm your laminate floors.
