How to Clean Laminate Floors

Although laminate floors look like wood, tile, or stone, they cannot be cleaned in the same way. Use our guide to learn how to establish a care routine, remove stains, and protect your floors.


Laminate Stains and Spills

As soon as a liquid spill occurs, blot it up with a microfiber towel.

If wax or gum falls on your laminate floor, start by freezing it with ice, then carefully scraping the frozen spill with a plastic scraper or plastic knife. Carefully wipe the area with a lightly dampened microfiber cloth to pick up any remaining residue.

You can pick up oily stains from marker, makeup, or ink with nail polish remover or acetone.

Place a small amount of the liquid on a clean microfiber cloth and wipe up the stain, then dry the area with a separate microfiber cloth.

Keep your laminate looking new

Improper cleaning can lead to a dull, streaky laminate floor. Follow these tips to keep your laminate floor looking newer, longer:

  • Sweep and vacuum often to keep your floors free of dirt, dust, and pet hair.
  • Use furniture pads under furniture legs, especially for frequently moved chairs.
  • Trim the nails on your cats and dogs to prevent them from scratching the surface. Even if you can’t see the scratches, they will accumulate and cause long-term damage. You should also place mats under food and water bowls.
