How To Maintain Shine on Your Laminate Floors
We will be one of the first to admit – laminate floors have a beautiful luster to them. To keep this shine and sheen intact and maintained over time, we’ll help you to make the correct steps to do so. Whether your laminate floor is fairly new or more aged, if it does seem to be a bit less enthusiastic in pleasing the eye, you may want to check out the following things that can be done to restore the natural shine that comes with beautiful laminate flooring for your home or business.
Product – Since you can’t use wax when you’re cleaning or trying to restore shine to your laminate floors, we suggest that you make the wise investment in quality laminate cleaning product, or shine product, made just for buffing and restoring sheen. Cost varies between ten and twenty dollars. If you can’t afford this, you can also utilize distilled vinegar and water. To remove dirt this way, create your mixture using 1 cup of distilled vinegar to every 1 gallon of water. Whatever you do – do not use soap-based products on your laminate floors! This will ruin your laminate flooring and create a dull film layer that is difficult or sometimes impossible to remove.
To further help your shine restoring quest – here is a quick step-by-step guide. Steps to restoring shine:
- Sweep your floor area using a soft-bristled broom.
- Remove the dirt by mopping with the vinegar mixture. Note: the floors MUST be dried IMMEDIATELY after.
- Next you may apply chosen laminate floor product by spreading it over the floor with the use of a microfiber cloth. (Microfiber will not pull on your floor, which would leave little bits of lint for you to clean up after cleaning – who wants more work?!).
- Start in one corner of the room and work your way backwards, spreading the product evenly while doing so.
