The nuts and bolts of laminate care
The good news at the outset is that you have not only made the right choice in terms of quality and design with your floor covering. Laminate is one of those floors that is also easy to clean. So you don't have to invest a lot of time and effort in laminate maintenance. However, you should know how to clean your laminate floor really effectively.
1. Laminate floor care tip: Sweeping and vacuuming are expressly encouraged
One of the advantages of laminate floors is that you can keep the floor clean just by sweeping or vacuuming regularly. Dry cleaning laminate is the basis for mopping. If you use a hoover to remove loose dirt, dust and the like, remember to extend the brush ring. As with hard floors or tiles, the wrong brush attachment can leave unsightly scratches and marks on laminate flooring if the nozzles hit the surface directly. A broom should have soft bristles.
2. Tip for laminate care: Please only wipe "damp"
Laminate flooring inspires with its smooth and fine surface. However, even though the surface is one of the most resistant of all floor coverings, water can penetrate laminate floors, especially at the plank joints and if micro cracks are present, despite the best quality and all care. Therefore, only wipe the floor with a damp cloth.
3. Laminate floor care tip: How often should you mop your laminate floor?
Are you wondering how often you should wipe your laminate flooring? It is perfectly sufficient to damp-mop it at regular intervals and as needed. Less is more with laminate flooring. In areas with little use, such as the bedroom, an even longer cycle between cleanings is often sufficient than in rooms that are more heavily used on a daily basis. With laminate flooring, you simply have more time for the finer things in life.
4. Tip for laminate care: The best agent of choice
