How to clean laminate floors

Laminate floors are a popular choice in many modern homes. They are easy to install in your home and have the pleasing appearance of polished and treated wood at a fraction of the price of actual wood. They are also very easy to clean. If you are wondering how to clean laminate floors and flooring, read on for some very easy tips.

Cleaning

The best laminate flooring is cleaned on a regular basis. If the only thing stopping you from investing in laminate flooring is the care involved in keeping it at its best, don't worry. It's very easy to have it at its best. You will need to invest in laminate floor cleaner products, but these aren't too expensive. Multi surface sprays or wipes, and even regular washing up liquid mixed with water can be used to clean the extensive stains or smudges from the laminate floor. This is easy to do with wipes or with a mop to apply the spray and water on the surface. To keep the flooring in premium condition, you can also use laminate floor polish which can be bought from your laminate flooring supplier or from most supermarkets. You apply this just as you would on other polished surfaces, Try not to use too much polish it can make surfaces slippery.

Repairing

Even if you take very good care of your laminate floor, it is susceptible to damage since it is really only a layer of vinyl than can be easily scratched, or worse torn. If this happens, it isn't a big problem. Unlike having to replace large sections of damaged wood flooring, all you have to do with laminate flooring is remove the small damaged section and replace it with the same amount of new laminate. The only stipulation with these type of repairs is that you match the new laminate to the previous colour and style of laminate flooring you already have. Although it looks like wood flooring, Wilsonart laminate flooring company offer an extensive range of laminate products for both floors and
counter-tops. Their range is very reasonable in price and you would likely find the product you need to replace areas of your floor at a very competitive price.
