Laminate Flooring Care and Cleaning

See manufacturer's recommendations for the care and cleaning of your laminate floor.

Routine Care and Cleaning

Vacuum laminate floors using the wand attachment. Use a dust mop or wipe with a damp cloth for general cleaning. For spills, wipe up immediately with a cloth or sponge. In sandy areas or at the beach, sweep or vacuum regularly. When necessary, use a well-squeezed, damp mop with a Laminate floor cleaner. Caution: Floors can become slippery when wet. Allow time for the floor to dry after washing. Immediately wipe up wet areas from spills, foreign substances or wet feet.


  • Use soap-based detergents or "mop and shine" products, as these may leave a dull film on your floor.
  • Use abrasive cleaners, steel wool, or scouring powder which can scratch your floor.
  • Wax or polish your floor.
