Laminate Care & Maintenance

Laminate flooring pairs the beauty of natural wood with easy, carefree maintenance. You’ll get years of beautiful performance from your laminate floor with a little preparation and know-how.

Basic Maintenance

Use a dust mop or a vacuum cleaner with a soft bristle brush on a regular basis. For slightly damp cleaning, spray Mohawk’s FloorCare Essentials Hardwood & Laminate Cleaner, cleaning products, and a little know-how. Here are a few tips on removing common stains the right way:

Use protective window coverings to block fade-causing UV rays and excessive heat from direct sunlight, and rearrange rugs and furniture periodically to help your floor age evenly. During inclement weather, avoid exposing your flooring to water as much as possible.

Tips for Preventing Damage

Extra Protection

Invest in high-quality floor mats and protective pads under heavy furniture for an extra layer of protection on your laminate floors. Place floor mats at entrances and exits—they collect and trap corrosive substances that can be tracked in, like dirt, sand, oil, grit, asphalt, or even driveway sealer. Placing mats in high-traffic areas—in front of vanities, kitchen sinks, and stoves—is an effective way to reduce wear.
