Laminate floor installation Des Plaines is a great alternative to harder-surface floors, like wood or tile. They’re easy to clean, and many of them are waterproof. But in order for laminate flooring to perform well, you need to take the time to care for it properly.
Here are some tips to help keep your laminate flooring in good shape:
Cleaning. Most laminate floors can be cleaned with mild dishwashing detergent and warm water. A soft mop is a good idea for areas that have a lot of spills, such as kitchen counters or tables.
Stains. Don’t use paper towels or sponges on laminate flooring because they can leave behind streaks in the finish. Instead, use a cleaning cloth or sponge that is made specifically for laminate flooring and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. If you can’t remove the stain with the cleaning cloth, try using a mild bleach solution and let it sit for 15 minutes before wiping it up with a damp cloth. Be sure not to use bleach on the surface of your floor; just use it on stains that have already been removed with other methods. Vacuum only when you need to.
