If you choose laminate flooring for your upcoming remodel, it’s important to avoid steam cleaners of all kinds, no matter how soiled your flooring is. Even with waterproof products, these cleaning tools are too harsh and cause damage to your flooring that may require complete replacement to fix, and zFloors can give you all the details.

No steam cleaners

These floors offer various durability options and even provide water-resistant and waterproof products for your convenience. However, these floors are not rated for the heat and pressure of most commercial steam cleaners.

Under this pressure, even waterproof laminate flooring will take on water and begin to swell, buckle, and eventually deteriorate, leaving you with surfaces that no longer perform as they should. This results in replacing all the damaged flooring, leaving you with extensive out-of-pocket expenses since the warranty will be voided.

What to do?

The first step in cleaning floors is sweeping up loose dirt and debris, followed by a damp mop using a manufacturer-recommended cleanser. You can also place area rugs or runners in spaces where traffic levels are highest to catch and trap dirt, making it even easier to clean your laminate flooring.
