5 Quick Tips for Laminate FlooringNo Using Vinegar On Laminate

Don't Use Vinegar

It is best to steer clear of vinegar for laminate flooring. Although it is a great natural solution for killing harmful germs, it may remove your laminate's protective layer. It is best to use a laminate-specific, germ-killing solution. If you must insist on using vinegar to clean the laminate, make sure to dilute and don't use too much liquid on the floors, which leads us to our next point.

 

No Soaking Wet Mopping On Laminate

No Wet Mopping

Don't do traditional wet mopping, as this method uses more water than laminate can handle. It may cause it to warp, soften, or completely disintegrate the laminate. Opt for a laminate mop with a laminate-specific cleaner.

 

Don't use stiletto heels on laminate floors

No Pointy Objects

Pointy objects such as stiletto heels can dent the laminate, and untrimmed pet nails can remove the protective layer, which may allow water or other liquids to seep in. It is best to avoid any objects like these for the protection of your floors. 

 

Sweeping laminate floors 

Sweep Often

Here is a great idea. Sweep often with a soft-bristled broom to gather dust bunnies, pet hair, and dirt. It may help to do this before cleaning with a damp mop.
