LAMINATE CARE & MAINTENANCE

LAMINATE CARE & MAINTENANCE

Laminate is easy to care for, but it still requires a little TLC as any other flooring solution does. Regular care will prolong its appearance, functionality, and durability for many years to come!

The first step is to establish a preventative maintenance routine that’s easy for the entire family to follow.

ROUTINE CARE

Sweep, dry mop, and vacuum your floors daily or weekly.

CLEAN SPILLS PROMPTLY

Don't let spills become stains! Address them right away.

USE DOORMATS

Capture dirt, sand, and stones before they end up on your new flooring.

USE A RUG!

Did you know? You can actually protect your laminate from wear, scuffs, and dents from heavy furniture by using area rugs. Additionally, area rugs absorb impact and add color while complementing your pre-existing flooring. It's a fun and stylish way to keep your laminate looking its very best!

DEALING WITH SPILLS AND STAINS

Wipe away any liquid messes with a clean cloth as soon as you see them occur. While some newer laminate flooring products include waterproof finishes, most do not. Therefore, it's essential to treat these spills right away. For more stubborn messes, see our stain removal guide. Laminate care will often vary by material and manufacturer; for instance, Shaw flooring includes wood, so it will require a wood-safe cleaning product.
