Laminate flooring is a commonly used kitchen floor for is durability paired with its ability to mimic other types of
flooring such as hardwood, ceramic tile, or stone. When properly taken care of, laminate floors can stay looking great for
years to come. When mistreated, even some of the most durable types of laminate can scratch, stain, or even warp. To put your
mind at ease, I've put together some quick and easy tips on how to clean laminate floors in your kitchen.
To prevent scratches and dulled areas, it's important that you sweep up dirt and debris daily. Quality laminate doesn't
scratch easily, but why take a chance. The smoother the finish, the more likely scratches are to show in your laminate
flooring. Laminate floors with a wood or stone texture, mask imperfections such as scratches more easily.
The most important tip for keeping your laminate floor looking new is to clean up kitchen spills immediately to avoid
swelling or staining of the boards. When mopping, do not apply water directly to the laminate or mop with too much water as
this may also cause your laminate to swell. Instead, laminate floors should only be mopped with a lightly damp mop which
leaves behind very little water. When a little extra cleaning power is needed, you can add in a manufacturer approved
laminate cleaner. Never use any harsh or abrasive cleaners on laminate flooring. For more info in how to clean and care for
