Laminate Flooring Maintenance & Care

Laminate flooring maintenance is easy and fast compared with hardwood and bamboo because its surface is wear resistant paper. Vacuum and wet mop is enough for daily care and cleaning. Laminate flooring has very thin surface layer of crystalline aluminum oxide wear layer, wear-resistant layer damage will get the flooring broken quickly.

Laminate flooring has established itself as an innovative and cost-efficient alternative to solid hardwood flooring. Laminate is not only attractive, but available in a wide range of colors and grains. It's also more dent and stain-resistant than solid or engineered hardwood flooring, making it the perfect choice for active households with young children or pets, also the perfect choice for commercial area because it is cheap and can be replaced in a few hours.

Here are 10 proper maintenance tips.
  • All wood flooring will have the change of moisture content with the ambient moisture or temperature change, so please keep room humidity not too dry (> 25%) and not too wet (<80%).
  • Laminate flooring need not have wax on routine maintenance, also DO NOT use sanding paper to polish the flooring because the wear layer of laminate flooring is paper, not finishing.
  • We recommend to place a rub pads at the door entrance, to prevent dust particles into the room and damage the flooring surface.
  • Laminate flooring surface stains and grease need be cleaned with household cleaners, DO NOT use strong acid and strong base of industrial floor cleaning detergent.
  • Vacuum can clean up most of small dust and wet wop can be used after vacuum but do not use a lot of water to wash the floor.
  • In dry areas, it should increase the humidity for the room in the winter, which can effectively prevent the flooring's gap and cracking; If the individual plank has been cracking, please replace it as early as you can to prevent more planks cracking.
  • In the rainy season, please shut the windows to avoid rainy.
  • Please routine check for heating and air conditioning, not to leak the water and get laminate flooring soaked. In case that the floor soaked in water, flooring immersed in water need be removed as soon as possible.
  • Do not drag the furniture in the movement, but lift it appropriate. The dragging movement will get flooring scratched.
  • Under iron chair legs need be pasted cushion to reduce damage to the floor wear layer. Without protection on legs, flooring can get a deep dent which can't be fixed forever.
