Laminate Care & Maintenance

Keep Your Laminate Floors Beautiful

How should I clean my laminate floors?

Even though laminate floors are known for being durable, they must be maintained. Regular sweeping or vacuuming is recommended to remove dirt and dust. Damp mopping will also help keep floors clean, though excessive water should be avoided, and floors should be wiped dry after mopping is complete. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or soap-based detergents that can dull or damage laminate. When in doubt, follow manufacturer recommendations on cleaning products and practices.

How do I repair scratches or stains on laminate planks?

For minor damage, such as scratches, many manufacturers create “touch-up kits” to help repair. Because of the ease of installation with laminate, severely damaged planks can often be replaced with new ones, posing minor inconvenience and no damage to the surrounding flooring. If you’re concerned about damage to an existing laminate floor, please get in touch with us.

Can I refinish my laminate floors?

No. Unlike real wood, laminate floors cannot be sanded and refinished. However, laminate flooring is designed to be highly durable and is less likely to show scratches and dents than hardwood.
