Which cleaning tools are best for laminate flooring?
One of the benefits of this attractive, affordable alternative to natural wood is its low maintenance. But don't make the mistake of thinking "low maintenance" translates to "no maintenance."
Laminate flooring will need some periodic TLC to keep it looking its best. Here are some of the best cleaning tools to use.
Gently does it!
Never use abrasive tools or harsh cleaners, as they can scratch the floors. Instead, use a dust mop or a soft-bristled brush every day to get rid of dirt and sand; grime can be sharp and will scratch.
If you vacuum, make sure you have it in the correct settings. Remove beater bars, those agitating brushes that pull up dirt to make it easier to clean.
Manufacturer-approved cleaners are the best
Ignore those "good for all types" cleaners. Laminate wood flooring needs the right PH balance. The cleaner will dull and damage the floor if it is too alkaline or acidic.
To be safe, use what's recommended in the warranty. Alternatively, you can seek the advisor of the flooring expert.
The right mop
The best mop is one with a microfiber head, as it grabs onto the dirt. Unfortunately, sponge mops tend to push the dirt around.
Benefits of laminate flooring
It's stylish, durable, and has easy installation, especially when installed to float.
An additional, newer version is constructed without wood, so it's spill-proof. In addition, waterproof laminate flooring eliminates staining, peeling, and rippling concerns.
