Maintenance

To maximise the durability and beauty of your laminate flooring, we recommend the following practices as part of your floor`s normal care and maintenance:

  • Place a doormat outside exterior entrances to collect excess moisture and dirt and stop it from getting on your floor. Dust and dirt such as sand and grit will not only make the floor dirty but can cause premature wear and tear and scratches.
  • Wipe up accidental household spills immediately with a clean dry cloth. Liquid spills left on Beaufloors Laminate Flooring will cause swelling of the joints.
  • To prevent scratching from excess dirt and dust, dust-mop ( dry and clean) or vacuum floor regularly.
  • Use only colourfast and non-scratch carpeting or pads on your floor.
  • Avoid sharp or pointed objects with concentrated weight such as high heels on your floor.
  • Use protective furniture coasters and felts pads under furniture legs.
  • Rearrange furniture occasionally for increased indentation resistance.
  • Do not treat or seal laminate floor panels after they are installed. The floor must not be waxed, varnished or polished. Do not use steel wool or abrasive cleaning methods on the floor panels after they are installed as it will damage the surface layer of the floor.
  • Never sand, lacquer, or refinish laminate flooring surfaces.
  • Never use steam cleaners on a laminate floor as they will swell the boards joints from the heat.
  • Never wet-mop the floor as it will cause swelling of the joints.

Following these tips will help maintain your floor for you to enjoy for years.
