Laminate flooring is one of the more affordable flooring options, compared to other flooring options from a Sugar Land flooring store. Laminate flooring can be fairly easy to maintain, but, like any flooring surface, it requires regular maintenance and proper care to maximize its longevity.
HERE ARE SOME TIPS AND ADVICE FOR MAINTAINING THE LAMINATE FLOORS IN YOUR SUGAR LAND HOME.
Don’t Use Oil Based Soaps
If you use an oil based soap or cleaner on your laminate flooring, it will leave your floors with a dull finish. It’s always best to follow the manufacturerâ€™s recommended instructions for types of laminate floor cleaners.
Always Clean Up Spills Immediately
Use a damp cloth or paper towel to blot up and dry your spill. Don’t leave spills on your floor, because depending on the type of liquid, it can seep between the seams in the planks on your floor, as well as damage the flooring surface. If you’re going to mop, make sure to lightly mop rather than pour a bunch of standing water on the surface of your floor. This will prevent water getting in between the seams causing them to peak.
Trim The Pet Claws
Imagine a sharp pointed plastic object repeatedly scratching your floors. This is much like what your pet does to your laminate flooring. The more you keep your pets claws trimmed, the less they will damage your beautiful laminate flooring.
Furniture Coasters to Your Laminate Flooring’s Rescue
Any gliding chair, rolling chair or other furniture objects with narrow legs, should have a furniture coaster beneath it to prevent the scratching of your laminate floors from repeated use and focused weight distribution. The broader your base, the less likely that your laminate flooring will be scratched by large objects.
