Wood Floor Cleaning/Maintenance Tips

  • Vacuum your laminated floors every day. Make sure they are free from pet hair and dirt.
  • Do not use a steam mop. Also, refrain from using abrasive cleaning products.
  • Whenever using a natural cleaner, use a dry sponge and saturate it in the cleaner. Make sure to wipe up water completely from the floor to avoid damage. Also, never overspray.
  • You should always test a cleaner on a small area of your floor and then use it on the entire floor.
  • Keep pets away from the hardwood floors or use a pet rug. Also, keep dirty footwear, heavy objects, and sliding furniture at bay.
  • Read the product label before using a particular wood floor cleaner.
  • Keep felt protectors beneath furniture legs to avoid scratches.
