Wood & Laminate Floor Cleaning & Polishing
Laminate floors are always a popular choice. Much cheaper than hardwood floors and if you pay a bit extra, very durable. What you need to understand is the fact that a laminate floor is not manufactured from wood. It is manufactured from pressed paper with glazing on the top. For this particular reason you need to pay attention to maintenance and you need to be very careful not to drag heavy items on the floor.
Laminate floors are suitable for medium and high traffic. Similar to tile flooring, from time to time it will require a deep clean to remove a build-up of dirt and oily residues unable to be removed by routine cleaning. There are specific tools, chemicals, and procedures to be used for the deep restorative cleaning of wood and laminate flooring.
Laminate Floor Deep Cleaning – our top-of-the-range hardwood and laminate floor cleaning detergents and our quality flat mopping systems will remove all types of dirt from laminate floors without soaking or water damaging the surface. Our products are tough on dirt but soft on the floor itself. We can remove oil stains, grease stains, food stains, rust stains, etc.
Wood & Laminate Floor Polishing – the best way of protecting your wood and laminate flooring against traffic and the risk of scratching is to apply 2-3 coats of high traffic floor polish. The sealant will create a thin protective coat between the floor and the traffic itself. The floor polish will facilitate easy maintenance and will enhance the look of the floor. The flat mop will slide easily on the floor and the dirt will not be able to build up. Not all universal floor sealants and floor polishes are suitable for laminate floors.
With proper routine cleaning, our amazing water-based floor polish sealant will provide up to 12 months of full protection even under daily traffic.
Laminate Floor Maintenance – maintain your floors with proper wood and laminate floor cleaners and flat mops. Do not wet the floor too much and do not use highly active, high PH, or acidic floor cleaners. A neutral floor cleaner will do the job.
Tips To Preserve Wood & Laminate Flooring
Vacuum or sweep floors regularly.
Avoid using wax, oil soap, or other industrial household cleaners.
Wax and silicone-based products compromise the integrity of the hardwood surfaces and make floor cleaning more difficult.
Remove spills promptly.
Place indoor/outdoor mats at entryways and area rugs in high traffic areas.
Avoid rubber-backed rugs or rugs with poor ventilation.
Maintain consistent humidity levels inside to prevent floors from swelling, shrinking, cracking, or exposing gaps.
Avoid deep scratches: high heels and pets can damage wood flooring.
Avoid dragging furniture across hardwood floors.
Use professionally recommended cleaning products.
Schedule for professional cleanings every 6-12 months based on traffic and wear.
