Cleaning Laminate Flooring
Cleaning laminate floor is much easier to maintain then their counterpart, hardwood flooring. Both need care when cleaning them but laminate flooring can be less challenging in the sense they don’t streak as easily.
What you will need:
-a vacuum with soft flooring attachment
-a microfiber mop
First vacuum the floor from corner to corner with the floor piece attachment. Do not use an upright vacuum that has adjustments for hard floor cleaning or a power head. These have a tendency to scratch the floor.
Fill up bucket with warm water. You do not need much water. The mop cloth should only be damp. At Naturally Clean we only use warm water and nothing else. However, some practices do say that you can include a bit of vinegar and soap. It really depends on the laminate itself. Adding a bit of vinegar or soap won’t hurt it. But see what works best for your floors.
When mopping follow the grain of the wood. This prevents streaking. And always have a clean mop and bucket water. A dirty mop cloth and bucket water will also result in a streaky filmy floor.
Laminate flooring are sturdy and do not scratch easily. They also need no waxing or polishing. If a touch stain does get on them you can use a soft scrubby pad and gently rub the stain.
