Laminate flooring has long been considered a terrific alternative to hardwood. People love its style, affordability, durability, and resistance to scratches and stains. It's also highly moisture resistant.
It can stand up to pets, kids, high heels, and heavy foot traffic. In addition, laminate's resistance to stains and moisture makes clean-up a snap. But, to remind you, "low maintenance" doesn't mean "no maintenance," so you'll have to give them attention from time to time.
First, read the manufacturer’s instructions in your warranty
Every manufacturer is different. The manufacturer guidelines are specific to your laminate flooring.
Look at the manufacturer's website if you don't see it in the warranty.
Every two months is the general rule for mopping laminate flooring. But, of course, that schedule may change for you, depending on the amount of foot traffic or if you have kids and pets who track in mud.
Make sure the mop is well-rung. Laminate floors are usually made of wood byproducts so that they can be damaged by water.
While there is waterproof laminate flooring, you need to discuss this in detail with your flooring expert.
Avoid wax or shine-promoting cleaners or anything that isn't labeled "safe for laminate." You can also make one yourself. Mix a gallon of hot water with a teaspoon of clear dish soap or a cup of white vinegar.
Protect the surface
Mostly common sense things; use protective furniture pads, trim pet nails, and use mats and scatter rugs strategically. And remember that welcome mat so people can wipe their feet before entering your home.
