Laminate Care

While vacuuming or sweeping is typically sufficient to keep laminate floors clean, occasionally clean with a cloth or mop using cleaning product, such as Mannington’s Ultra Clean System.

Some important tips for keeping a laminate floor clean include:

  • Never flood the floor with water
  • Do not use soap-based detergents
  • Avoid abrasive cleaners
  • Never wax, polish, sand, or lacquer a laminate floor
  • Use doormats
  • Remove liquid spills as soon as possible

For specific stains follow the chart below:
