Daily Care & Maintenance
Laminate floors are beautiful and very durable but not indestructible. Floors can dull when unattended dirt acts as an abrasive on its surface. This can be avoided by sweeping, dust mopping, or vacuuming regularly to remove loose dirt and grit.
You can also use a broom or, to make the job faster, a vacuum cleaner without a beater bar. Vacuum cleaner attachments are also useful to pick up dirt from between planks, tiles, or along edges.
An occasional damp mopping is also suggested. However, your laminate flooring can expand if excessive water is used while cleaning, so wipe your floors down with a dry cloth when finished.
