Laminate Floor Vacuum

Emrah Turudu/Getty Images A familiar laminate floor lament is. “If I can't find a way to keep my laminate floors from being gritty, sticky, or streaky after I mop, then I'm going to rip them out with my bare hands and just have a dirt floor. It's pretty much the same as what I've got now. Can you help?”Put down the crowbar. There is no need to pry up a laminate floor. They have a reputation for being difficult to mop, but there is an answer that doesn't involve ripping up the boards. Let's start with the basics.Sweeping a laminate floor is a mistake.It may sound strange, but a traditional broom is not your best bet with a laminate floor. You need a dry dust mop, or a vacuum cleaner to get the job done. Regular brooms will leave behind too many particles. Particles mix with the wet mop and get spread around on the floor. At best they'll leave streaks and residue behind. At worst, they'll scratch and pit the surface of your floor. Either way, a broom is not the way to go. If you do decide to use a vacuum cleaner, a machine that has an on/off brushroll button or a hard floor setting will be best. Brush rolls are capable of scratching and damaging laminate over time.Laminate floor cleaner is not a necessity.Some people have a specific brand that they love and won't give up, but an expensive laminate floor cleaner is not always the answer. Choose a cleaner that is designed to work with your floor type and fits your budget. Give homemade mopping solutions a try. Sometimes just a little water goes a long way. Whatever you do, don't use too much cleaner. Using too much soap is tempting when you really want something clean, but all it does is leave a residue behind that dulls the finish of the floor. The residue is the leading cause of dull looking laminate floors. Liquid isn't good for laminate.How are you supposed to clean something without water? Water and other liquids can actually seep in between the laminate boards and cause swelling, damaging the laminate. You don't need a ton of water or liquid to clean these floors. Be cautious about having too much. Try only spraying as much as you need on a section of the floor as you mop. If a lot of water or liquid is left behind after you mop a spot, you're using too much. The floor should be able to dry on its own within 1-2 minutes of you mopping it.Buff the floor to shine it.If you really want to make sure that your floor shines, you'll need to take a few minutes to buff it dry. Try using an absorbent cleaning cloth or mop head. Cloth diapers and microfiber cleaning cloths make the best buffing rags. Gently buff the floor to a nice shine.Protect the floor.Now that you know how to make the floor look great, keep it looking great by protecting it. Make sure you have indoor and outdoor mats positioned at the entrances of your home. Consider a no-shoe rule in the house. Wipe up spills and messes right when they occur. Use furniture protectors and watch out for overfilling plants that may leak onto the floor. ┬áThese are simple things to do with your laminate floor that will prevent it from aging or being damaged prematurely.

Vacuum or sweep your Pergo hardwood floor to remove dirt and dust. Use a vacuum or hard-floor vacuum attachment without a rotary brush head or moving parts, as these could scratch or damage your floor. Use a Hard Surface Cleaner to remove dirt or other residue. Apply Hardwood Flooring Cleaner directly to the dry flooring mop, not the hardwood floor. Use a back and forth motion with the mop on the hardwood. When the mop cover becomes soiled, simply replace it with a clean one. Cleaning the hardwood floor with a soiled cover could cause streaking. The covers are generally re-usable, so simply throw the cover in the wash and dry as you would any towel. Protecting Your Pergo Hardwood Protecting your Pergo hardwood FURNITURE Use floor protectors or felt covers on chair legs, sofas, TV stands, tables and other easily moveable furniture. Replace plastic or metal casters on chairs with rubber wheels. Lift, don’t slide, heavy objects across floors. PETS Trim your pet’s nails as recommended by your veterinarian. SPILLS AND SUNLIGHT Promptly remove spills using hardwood flooring cleaner and a clean cloth. To help preserve the original look and color of your hardwood flooring, close window treatments during hours of direct sunlight and avoid excessive lighting where possible. SHOES Avoid wearing spiked heels or shoes in need of repair while walking on hardwood floors as they could scratch the surface. AREA RUGS Place walk-off area rugs or protective mats at all exterior entrances to collect small bits of sand and gravel that may be tracked into the home. Alternate and clean mats regularly to avoid turning them into a soil source themselves or causing stains under the rug. Make sure your rugs have a solid back, so soil doesn’t sift through the rug to come in contact with the floor. Clean under interior area rugs and mats regularly, as soil underneath them will have an abrasive effect on the floor finish. Simple Repair and Stain Removal Simple repair and stain removal for Pergo hardwood MINOR DAMAGE OR DINGS Treat minor damage to a Pergo Hardwood plank with a repair kit made for wood flooring. LIQUID MESSES Quickly wipe up pet or water accidents from your Pergo hardwood floors with a cotton cloth to prevent the floor from absorbing moisture. Wipe away remaining residue with a lightly damp cloth. PET STAINS For set pet waste stains, use a clean cloth to dab a small amount of hydrogen peroxide on the stain. SET STAINS For larger stains that are totally set, talk to your local Pergo store about replacing the damaged floor area.
