Daily Laminate Care & Maintenance
Fortunately, laminate is a low-maintenance flooring option, but some daily care is required to ensure that your flooring continues to look great and function well. With laminate, the key is investing in a quality broom and putting it to use on a daily basis. It's that simple! By actively working to remove dirt, dust, and other debris, you can prolong the lifespan of your laminate. You may also elect to use a mop on your floor too, but be careful about using too much water as it could prove harmful to your floors and the subflooring beneath them. You may also want to place entry mats at the doors of your home as well.
Dealing With Laminate Spills & Stains
One of the best aspects of laminate floors is how tough they are on spills and stains. For laminate flooring owners, spills & stains are not cause for concern so long as you address them in a timely manner. When and if a spill takes place, simply find yourself a clean towel and wipe away the substance. The key is to act fast when spills occur. If the spill is left on the laminate too long then it could seep into the subflooring, potentially causing long-term damage that could prove costly. When in doubt consult your manufacturer care guides on how to handle laminate spills.
