How to clean laminate flooring

Laminate flooring has grown in popularity over the years due to its ability to imitate hardwood flooring beautifully as well as having many practical benefits. Laminate flooring is water, stain and scratch-resistant which makes it very easy to clean. We often get asked the best way to clean laminate flooring, so we’ve put together a short guide on how to make your laminate flooring gleam.

Cleaning Products:

Unlike wood flooring, a solution of white vinegar and hot water can be used as the best floor cleaner for laminate. All you need to do is mix one cup of white vinegar with one gallon of hot water in a bucket or using a spray bottle. Once applied onto the floor, distribute the solution around using a damp mop or damp cloth ensuring all areas are covered. Continue to mop the floor until it starts to dry.

Everyday Spills:

Simple spills and mud are very easy to clean off laminate flooring. Using a lightly dampened cloth, wipe over the spill quickly until it has all disappeared and then dry with a tea towel or kitchen roll. Avoid using soft-bristled brooms and steel wool for simple everyday dirt as it could potentially scratch the floor or damage the protective top layer of the flooring.

Intensive Cleaning:

If you’re looking to do an intensive clean, then you should invest in a good quality microfiber cloth or mop and a laminate specific cleaning kit. Following instructions on your cleaning kit to create the floor cleaner, use a wet mop and simply mop the floor in small motions ensuring all areas of the floor have been covered and carefully dried. Avoid using a steam mop as the excessive moisture and heat can damage the inner core of the laminate.

Things to think about:

There are many different ways to keep your floor clean and it all depends on the type of cleaning you’re doing. Always be mindful of how much water you’re applying to your laminate floor as too much moisture can damage the lower layers.
