Everyone loves the feeling of having something new. It’s exciting and different. The same applies to having a brand new laminate floor. It’s a great feeling seeing your floors so bright and clean! And you want to keep that feeling for years to come. Thankfully it’s pretty easy with Quick•Step’s laminate floors. There’s not a lot you need to do to keep your floors looking bright from day one.
Regular care is always important to keep your floors in top shape. Always wipe up spills quickly with a cloth — it will help keep your floor clean and reduce the chance of staining or warping. Regularly sweep the floors to get rid of loose dust or dirt; doing this keeps the floors free of particles that could scratch or damage your floors. Also, if you’re going to vacuum, be sure to use a soft bristle attachment so it doesn’t harm the surface. Vacuums with “beater bars,” grit impregnated wheels, or plastic wheels can damage the floor, so if your vacuum has any of these features, you should opt for a microfiber mop or cloth instead.
Use a hard-surface cleaner for your laminate floor.
Water can harm laminate floors, so steamers or wet mops should be avoided. Laminate floors don’t require water as part of their cleaning. In its place, we recommend a hard surface floor cleaner to get the job done without hurting your new laminate. Stay away from any kind of oil, soap or detergent floor cleaner. These items aren’t meant for use on laminate floors.
For best results Quick•Step recommends using the Performance Accessories Care Kit, available from your local Quick•Step retailer. This kit includes a laminate-friendly hard surface cleaner, a mop base, and both a damp mop cloth and a dry mop cloth for different types of cleaning. The contents of this kit help to thoroughly clean your floor while maintaining the integrity of the protective finish.
