How to Repair Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring is designed and manufactured to resist the wear and tear of normal high traffic. But occasions do arise when the floor gets damaged, either with scratches because of dust and dirt underfoot, or indentations from carelessly moved furniture or even topical spills of liquids and other materials.

Generally the manufacturers stock crayons of different colors to suit the particular laminate. These can be used somewhat effectively against superficial scratches and should remove their appearance.

Deeper scratches and other damage might need a replacement of a particular square or plank. Since most laminate flooring is fade–resistant, matching the replacement should not be difficult as long as you can find the same brand and type of laminate floor. But this is a difficult and delicate job which would require some expertise or the services of a skilled professional.

Some stains from liquid spills may be removed with a damp cloth and some approved laminate floor cleaning solution. More obstinate stains may require the replacement of the laminate square or plank. Most candle wax and chewing gum can be carefully scraped off.

Other restoration products are available commercially in kit form. These comprise of a cleaning solution to be sprayed on as a first stage and allowed to settle for 3 minutes or so. Then the spray with the ingrained wax and grime must be removed with special micro–fiber mops provided for this purpose. The area should then be rinsed and dried well. The final stage is spraying of a restoration fluid, allowing it to dry and spraying a second coat.

Before using any of the above methods to restore or repair your laminate flooring, be sure to read the warranty and care information that came with your laminate floors. It is also recommended that you consult with a flooring professional as they may be able to provide you with the best information, product, or method for restoring your specific brand and type of laminate floors.

We purchased Quick-Step laminate flooring and they have a maintenance and cleaning video out on youtube I would think this would be a good base for any type of laminate flooring. Hope this helps in addition to this article!

Unlike solid wood flooring, laminate flooring can't be sanded or waxed. So for the most problems of laminate flooring, the broken laminate flooring planks need to be replaced. It will be much better to have a proffessional installer to do the replacement work.
