Don't worry...it's not necessary to invest a whole lot of time and effort in laminate upkeep! Just follow a few simple care and maintenance tips to ensure your new laminate floor's longevity.
Daily care and maintenance
L.A. Carpet Warehouse wants your flooring to stand the test of time. Follows these basic guidelines to keep your laminate floors in tip-top shape.
Sweep, dust, or vacuum your laminate floor regularly with the hard floor attachment to prevent the accumulation of dirt and grit that can scratch or dull the floor's finish.
Periodically clean the floor with cleaning products made specifically for laminate floor care.
Do not wash or wet mop the floor with soap, water, oil-soap detergent, or any other liquid cleaning material. This could cause swelling, warping, delamination, and joint-line separation, and void the warranty.
Stains and spills
Keeping your laminate flooring looking its best is easy, even with life's inevitable stains and messes!
For spills, simply use a damp cloth to blot up as soon as possible.
For more challenging issues like oil, paint, markers, lipstick, ink, or tar, use acetone/nail polish remover on a clean white cloth, then wipe the area with a damp cloth to remove any remaining residue.
Please be sure to reference your laminate floor warranty for specific care requirements!
