Care & Maintenance Of Laminate
Please be sure to reference your laminate floor warranty for specific care requirements! For your general information, however, here are some basic tips and facts:
- Use a damp cloth to blot up spills as soon as they happen. Never allow liquids to stand on your floor.
- For tough spots, such as oil, paint, markers, lipstick, ink, or tar, use acetone/nail polish remover on a clean white cloth, then wipe the area with a damp cloth to remove any remaining residue.
- Sweep, dust, or vacuum the floor regularly with the hard floor attachment (not the beater bar) to prevent the accumulation of dirt and grit that can scratch or dull the floor finish.
- Periodically clean the floor with cleaning products made specifically for laminate floor care.
Additional Laminate Maintenance Tips
- Do not wash or wet mop the floor with soap, water, oil soap detergent, or any other liquid cleaning material. This could cause swelling, warping, delamination, and joint-line separation and void the warranty.
- Do not use steel wool, abrasive cleaners, or strong ammoniated or chlorinated type cleaners.
- Do not use any type of buffing or polishing machine.
- For spots such as candle wax or chewing gum, harden the spot with ice and then gently scrape with a plastic scraper, such as a credit card. Be careful not to scratch the flooring surface. Wipe clean with a damp cloth.

Laminate flooring is subject to expansion due to excessive moisture in the home. This moisture, whether from plumbing leaks or excessive moisture vapor caused by high humidity conditions can cause laminate flooring to buckle and/or swell at the joints. Problems caused by excessive moisture are not covered by the terms of this warranty.
