Laminate requires special cleaning

When cleaning, special attention should be paid to laminate floors because this material can be damaged by using the wrong chemicals.

To keep your laminate floor in good condition and remove all dirt, you need to follow a few tips. OBOZREVATEL will help you with this.

Laminate flooring gets damaged over time due to people walking, scratches from furniture, and various stains and agents. To effectively clean the surface, you will need several tools that are available in every home.

First, you need to sweep the floor or remove debris with a vacuum cleaner. Choose a nozzle for hard surfaces, as a carpet brush can damage laminate flooring.

An important rule of floor cleaning is to avoid using too much water. This can lead to swelling and bumps on the surface. Therefore, use a small amount of water to clean the floor so that it is damp, not wet.

Add a little special laminate flooring cleaner to the water, lightly dampen a mop, and wipe the floor. You can also add lemon juice to the water if there are greasy stains on the floor. This mixture will effectively remove all dirt.

If the floor gets dirty quickly, you should only clean certain areas to avoid damaging the material with water. It is better to remove the stains immediately rather than washing the entire floor.

When there are color or oil stains on the laminate, you can use acetone, but only in very small quantities.

After cleaning, immediately wipe the floor with a clean, dry towel or mop to remove excess moisture. This final step ensures that any residual detergent or water does not damage the laminate.

If you can feel a film on your laminate floor or perhaps see it in the sunlight, it may mean that you used the wrong products to clean it.

To get rid of this, add lemon juice to the water and wipe the floor every week. Vinegar is also effective in removing the film. Add a cup of the liquid to the water and wash the necessary areas.

Laminate flooring should not be cleaned with dishwashing detergents, as the floor will be sticky and unpleasant to the touch. Abrasive products containing bleach and ammonia can also damage the surface. Steam is dangerous for laminate because it weakens the top protective layer and the coating deteriorates faster.
