Simply dust mop or vacuum with a soft brush or wood-floor accessory to keep your floor clean from dust, dirt or grit. Do not use a wet mop or spray solutions on your laminate floor.
A damp cloth or mop can be used without damage to the laminate panels, but do not use excessive water. Dry the floor thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth.
Clean up spills or water from wet feet or footwear immediately with a clean, dry cloth, sponge, or paper towel. Do not allow excess liquid to remain on the surface.
Do not use soap-based detergents, abrasive cleaners, or combined "clean and shine" products on your laminate floor.
Do not scrub or allow standing water in the V-Groove as this may damage. Do not use steel wool or other scouring pads that will scratch laminate panels.
Do not wax or polish your laminate flooring.
Do not steam clean or use chemicals that may damage the flooring surface.
Care and Maintenance
While your laminate flooring is highly resistant to stains and abrasions, it is not indestructible. In order to maximize the durability and beauty of your laminate floor, we recommend the following practices as part of your floor's normal care and maintenance.
Place a doormat outside the exterior entrances to collect excess moisture, sand, grit and other potentially damaging substances from being tracked onto your laminate floor.
Use only colorfast and non-scratch carpeting or pads on your laminate surface.
Avoid sharp or pointed objects such as high heels, animal claws, etc… on your floor.
Use protective felt pads under furniture legs or wide castors under appliances levelers.
If using a wheeled dolly to move furniture or appliances on your laminate floor, place a clean sheet of smooth plywood or other protective layer over your laminate surface.
Rearrange furniture occasionally for increased indentation resistance
Do not treat or seal your laminate floor panels after they are installed.
Never sand, lacquer, or refinish your laminate flooring surfaces.
