The very first step in laminate floor cleaning actually requires no cleaning. As soon as you enter your home, make it a habit to remove your shoes. The undersides of your shoes contain some substances that you had treaded over outside, including dirt, oil, and bubble gum. In addition, the base of your feet contains oils, so it is sensible to wear socks or slippers inside your home. Preventing unnecessary substances from being tracked on your floor will make laminate floor cleaning exceedingly more easy. Before mopping the floor, sweep the surface. Subsequently, before you begin your laminate floor cleaning, get ready a mixture of 1/2 cup of distilled white vinegar per each gallon of water. In the past, you may have used vegetable oil on your floor. If that is the case, then increase the ratio to one cup of vinegar for each gallon of water. Vegetable oil cleaners should be avoided as they leave deposits onto the wood flooring. This will ultimately destroy the sealant.
Make sure buckling or warping does not occur. Laminate floor is sensitive to water and moisture. That is to say, when exposed to either, your floor could get damaged. Buckling or warping happens if there is much moisture in the air, there is too much water on the floor, or there is water coming out from the subfloor because of a not-so-reliable moisture defense. There are cases, however, that this kind of damage is just a result of a low quality laminate floor product. Always be prepared to be bugged by mold and mildew problems. Aside from buckling or warping, moisture also carries molds and mildew problems to your laminated tiles. In this case, it is important to know whether or not there is too much moisture in the floor area and, if there is, you should be able to get rid of this moisture problem or else it will constantly haunt you with mold and mildew issues.
