Protect your laminate flooring with these care and maintenance tips from the experts at Floortrends in Peterborough, ON.

preventative maintenance

Keep your laminate floors looking good for years to come with a little preventative maintenance. Start by placing doormats at entryways. These will collect dirt and debris before it can track across your floors, preventing wear and tear.

You should also consider putting your furniture on protective pads to prevent scratches and indents. And don't forget to vacuum and dry mop regularly, especially in high-traffic areas.

cleaning spills & stains

Simple spills like water, wine, and juice can be cleaned by simply wiping the area down with a damp cloth.

Laminate floors are not entirely waterproof, though, so clean spills before they become stains or cause warping. For tougher stains like wax or lipstick, check your manufacturer's guide for an approved cleaning solution.
