  • Glides or floor protectors on the bottom of your furniture will prevent possible scratching or abrasions.
  • It’s important to lift heavy furniture instead of dragging or pulling them.
  • Use pieces of carpet face down under heavy objects when moving them across your floor.
  • Spot cleaning and occasional complete cleaning of your laminate floor can be done using the manufacturer’s recommended products.
  • Never use abrasive cleaners, steel wool or scouring powder.
  • Do not use soap-based detergents or “mop-and-shine” products.
  • Never flood your floor with water or cleaner.
  • Do not wax or polish your laminate floor.
  • Never try to refinish or sand your laminate floor.
  • Durable but not indestructible, your laminate floor can be damaged by stiletto heels.
  • But the good news is that the finish on your laminate floor can help protect the floor from sunlight and the typical fading you find with aging hardwood floors.
  • Keep in mind that if a repair is necessary in the future, the replacement product may be a slightly different dye lot and/or texture than the initial installation.
  • However, with time and usage, the repair will blend in with your original product.
  • For additional care procedures please refer to the manufacturer’s care and maintenance instructions and recommendations.
