Steam Cleaning Laminate

By Kirsten Kapsin, (167 words) Posted in Laminate Flooring on November 14, 2008

If laminate was Superman, humidity and water would be its kryptonite. In other words, a steam cleaner and laminate would be a fatal combination. Steam cleaners produce moisture and heat and water that will surely wreak havoc on your laminate floors.

Flooring professionals do not even recommend wet mopping laminate. When cleaning your laminate floors, sweeping and mopping with a damp mop are the only methods that are generally advisable. If there are only some small problem areas, you may want to consider cleaning them by hand with some alcohol and a clean cloth. When cleaning by hand you can better control the amount of liquid that you're putting on the floor.

I've seen various websites where many people recommend steam cleaning laminate floors. They obviously have never tried to personally steam clean laminate before. If you want to protect the longevity and performance of your laminate floors, keep them clear of water and extreme humidity change at all costs!

How do you get laminate flooring to shine again? What can I use after cleaning it?

Stacey posted on: December 15, 2008

Antoinette, I recommend that you check with the manufacturer of your laminate floors. There are a lot of products that say they will shine laminate flooring, but may end up leaving a residue that will actually dull the floors over time. These can also void your laminate's warranty. Your manufacturer may have a product specifically for this.

There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game.
