Homeowner Resources: Laminate

Laminate Flooring is extremely hygienic and easy to keep clean. Here are our recommendations to keep your laminate flooring looking beautiful for many years.

• Routine maintenance includes vacuuming, sweeping or dust mopping.  At Carpet & Flooring Network we recommend the FloorCare Essentials Hard Surface Cleaning Kit, which is available through your local Carpet & Flooring Network dealer.  The cleaning kits contain a terry cloth mop and a cleaning solution along with instructions. The cleaner is sprayed onto the mop-head and then the floor is wiped clean. After damp cleaning, dry the floor thoroughly with a clean cloth.

• You will want to be sure to follow the maintenance schedule of the product you purchase. Your local Carpet & Flooring Network owner/operator can supply you with the specifics of maintaining your floor.
• Remove tough, stubborn stains such as paint, adhesive, asphalt, oil, etc. with alcohol, acetone, or nail polish remover.
• Use non-staining walk-off mats by the entrance of all outside doorways. Entry mats will help collect the dirt, sand, grit, and other substances such as oil, asphalt, or driveway sealer that might otherwise be tracked onto your floor.
• Felt pads should be affixed to the base of all furniture legs and drip trays should be placed underneath any planted pots. Moveable furniture should be fitted with wide, rubber rollers. As a rule, the heavier the object, the wider the floor protector.
• Use caution when moving large appliances such as refrigerator, ranges, etc.
• Maintain a normal indoor relative humidity level between 35% and 65% throughout the year to minimize the natural expansion and contraction of the wood.
• Heating season (Dry): A humidifier is recommended to prevent excess shrinkage due to low humidity levels. Wood stove and electric heat tends to create very dry conditions.
• Non-Heating Season (Wet): An air conditioner, dehumidifier, or periodically turning on your heating will help to maintain humidity levels during summer months.

Important Tips:

• 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.
• Do not use excessive amounts of water or cleaner.
• Do not use abrasive cleansers such as Ajax, Comet, steel wool or other scouring products.
• Do not apply waxes, polishes, urethanes or lacquers to your laminate floor.
• Do not use steam cleaners or any type of buffing or polishing machine.
• Under no circumstances, should your laminate floor ever be sanded.
