5. How to clean and maintain laminate flooring | Tarkett

How to clean and maintain laminate floors Homeowners often choose laminate floors for their durability and low maintenance. At Tarkett, our laminate offers hassle-free maintenance. It has a hard sealed surface, and its overlay is stain, shock and scratch-resistant. Melamine based, it's an excellent barrier against the growth or spread of germs, contributing to a healthy home environment. Our tight locking systems also prevent dust and dirt from getting stuck on the surface and in between planks, so when cleaning time comes, a vacuum and a damp mop with soft detergent are all that's needed. To clean laminate floors simply wipe, vacuum or sweep them with a soft broom or microfiber mop on a daily basis. Once a week, use a damp mop or cloth with warm water and a mild cleaner for a more intense clean. Make sure that you do not use a wet mop, as large amounts of water can damage your laminate and cause it to warp over time. If you've just purchased new laminate floors, you should follow the manufacturer's instructions on how to clean them. Tips for cleaning stains on your laminate flooring Mop up spills as they occur. Liquids left to stand on laminate floors can cause stains and more severe damage. Remove stains by rubbing them with a dry cloth moistened with a gentle cleaning agent. Never spray a cleaning product directly onto the floor. Remove rubber, plastic and heel marks by rubbing with a dry cloth and acetone. Remove shoe polish, paint and ink with a cloth soaked in acetone, paint thinner or vinegar essence. Remove candle wax and chewing-gum, once hardened, with a blunt plastic scraper. Even though laminate flooring is low maintenance, there are a few basic steps that you can follow to keep them looking better for longer. Clean laminate floors regularly to avoid a build-up of dirt and dust. You can wipe, vacuum or sweep your laminate floor with a soft broom. For a deeper clean, use a damp mop with warm water and a mild detergent. Use doormats at the entrances to prevent dirt and other debris being tracked through your home. Place floor protectors, such as pads and soft castors, under table legs and chairs to prevent scratches and dents. Protect the floor's top layer by avoiding the use of harsh scouring devices or cleaning product - both of which can prematurely wear down the top layer. Clean up spills immediately to avoid standing puddles of liquid. If water, or other liquids, penetrates the surface of your laminate floors, it will cause the boards to swell and the top layer to peel and bubble. Do not drag or slide furniture across your laminate flooring to avoid damage. If your laminate floors get damaged, either from scratches, minor chips or more severe water damage, you can generally repair them yourself using the right tools and techniques. Minor damage to your laminate floors such as nicks, dents or scratches can be repaired with a laminate repair kit. For more severe damage, such as water damage, you need to remove the damaged boards, by either cutting them out or removing the surrounding boards, and lay new ones. How do you make laminate floors shine? Regular cleaning and proper maintenance ensure that your laminate floors remain clean and shiny. However, if you allow dirt and residue to build up, or you use the wrong cleaning products, your laminate floors can start to look dull. If this happens, you need to give your laminate floors a deep clean using warm water and a mild cleaner. Avoid using abrasive scouring devices and harsh soap-based cleaning products, as these will both damage the top layer of the laminate and cause it to lose its shine. Instead, look for products that are specifically meant for laminate floors. Unlike wooden floors, you can not sand back and wax or polish laminate floors. If your laminate floors start to look dull, it's likely due to a build-up of dust and dirt. A good, deep cleaning using water and a mild cleaner should be all that's needed to restore your floor's shine.

Installing Laminate Flooring Over Damaged Floor.?
The pitted concrete should not matter since tack strips are out on the perimeter anyway. If it was a high traffic spot I may fill them1. Do I have to put plywood down on wooden sub-floor when installing laminate flooring?no it would actually be better not to so the heights are the same in the transition. You will also be putting down the foam that will take care of any imperfections in the sub floor2. With radiant floor heating, how much more heat would you get using ceramic tile over laminate flooring? Would the extra cost be worth it?The thicker the floor, the longer it will take to heat up. Warm ceramic may feel warmer than laminate and may stay warmer longer. But cold ceramic stays cold longer. We recently installed a ceramic floor over cement board over plywood having the radian tubing embedded in it, over the subfloor, which has 4 inches of foamed insulation under it. This 350-sq-ft "radiator" of the new eat-in kitchen addition is more than sufficient to heat the entire 780 sq ft room -- as long as you do not expect it to warm up fifteen minutes after you switch it on.3. How do I ensure my concrete floor is "flat" for laminate flooring?To use the string method you need a length of strong string and a tool called a line level . The line level cost's under 5 bucks . What you do is anchor one end of the string to the wall at a specific height using whole numbers- [If you use 3' you can use a 4' level to insure that you have a perpendicular measurement to the floor ] hook the line level on the string and with the help of an assistant stretch the string to the opposite wall. When the string is level ,anchor it. You now have a level line across the room. Take your tape measure and measure the distance from the line to the floor along various points. Record on a piece of graph paper , change locations and repeat as needed. You will wind up with a topographical profile of your floor.4. Laminate Flooring, how do I clean without leaving streaks.?Laminate floors are very low maintenance. Ironically, if you use a lot of cleaning products on them, they will actually look worse...they will get smudges and streaks, like you are experiencing. And steam can absolutely ruin laminate floors. It can cause warping and even cause the veneer to peel right off. Having said this, exactly how do you maintain a laminate floor? Mostly just by vacuuming it. When you need more than a vacuuming, use a microfiber mop and plain old water. No cleanser, no vinegar, no nothing...just water. Let the mop do the work. Microfiber is fantastic at removing dirt and streaks and does not need a cleanser to help. In your case, I would definitely vacuum and then mop with a microfiber mop. Wet the mop and use it. No need to dry the floor, but also do not let water pool on the floor. You want a good damp mop, but not puddles of water. (Small streaks of water are ok.) If you do not already have a microfiber mop, you can buy them at Walmart, Target, Kmart, Home Depot, and even Dollar General. I've never used anything but a vacuum and a microfiber mop (plus water) on our laminate floors and they still look fantastic after all these years. Hope this helps. -5. Has anyone bought/installed QUICKSTYLE Laminate flooring? Looking for comments. NOT the same as QUICKSTEP?Quickstyle Laminate Flooring6. How do I edge a curved sunken room with laminate flooring?If I understand you correctly , the step down is curved. If this is the case, you can t with a laminate. Since it needs to float, you cant use any thing on the edges to cover the edges as well as protect and go over the laminate edge since you need something to cover open laminate edges to "hold" it down. Straight edges, they make special stairnosings to properly do this. There are rubber edge pcs they make you carpet and vinyls to do curves but wouldn t work and look right on laminate. Any questions you can e mail me through my avatar ( with pictures if that helps) . I ve attended several installation seminars as well installed a few 100,000 s/f. GL
