How to Clean Laminate Floors Less Water is Best
Cleaning laminate floors is a breeze with the right mop. This handy guide will teach you how to clean laminate floors effortlessly so you have more time to put your feet up! To get started you will need 2 things: 1. Microfiber Mop 2. Cleaning Solution
1. Microfiber Mop First make sure you have the right mop for the job. The best way to clean laminate floors is with a microfiber mop. Microfiber mops glide across the floor picking up dirt and pet hair effortlessly. The swivel heads make it super fast to cover large areas, they get under tables and chairs easily, plus they require less water which is best because laminate flooring warps easily if exposed to water.
2. Cleaning Solution You can either buy a manufacturer’s cleaning solution or make one yourself (scroll down to see my recipe for homemade laminate floor cleaner below). Either way you’ll need a spray bottle to squirt the cleaning solution onto the mop pad.
Quick Instructions dry mop with your microfiber mop OR use a vacuum on the wood floors setting to suck up big dust bunnies and hair tumbleweeds dampen the microfiber pad with warm water and spray on the cleaning solution of your choice mop the floor when the microfiber pad gets too dirty simply – rinse, replace and continue when you’re finished rinse the microfiber pad and put it in the washing machine on sanitary wash
Best Ways to Start Run a vacuum over the floor. Make sure it is set on the wood floors setting* OR use the microfiber mop (without water) to get all the big clumps of hair and dust up. You can scrape the debris off and rinse before using the same microfiber pad for wet mopping OR dry dust mop with a Swiffer type sweeper
Top Tip It is best to sweep or vacuum in the direction that the floor is laid in to collect all the dirt between the grooves instead of trapping it. Don’t use a vacuum with a beater bar because it can scratch the laminate floor. If your laminate floor has a high gloss or piano surface I recommend you avoid vacuuming altogether just to be on the safe side and begin with #2 or #3 instead. This is because even if you set the vacuum to the wood floors setting it can still scratch the floor and scratches on high gloss or piano surface are very obvious in the light.
Top Tip 3. prepare your home made cleaning solution in a spray bottle or just grab your branded one from the cupboard 4. dampen the microfiber pad with warm water from the tap (not too soggy) and spray on the cleaning solution 5. mop the floor – a microfiber mop cuts through gunk with hardly any pushing down or scrubbing, so relax and let the mop do the work
Top Tip 6. when the microfiber pad gets too dirty after one or two rooms – rinse, reattach and continue. REMEMBER - You don’t need to haul a bucket of warm water around with you. 7. One microfiber pad can easily last for two rooms or more so you don’t need to rinse it out in the sink very often. There’s no squeegeeing or high-duty wringing like with a string mop when you’re finished rinse the microfiber pad in the sink and hang out to dry. 8. After several uses (and the pad appears to be quite discolored) put it in the washing machine on sanitary wash And that’s it!
Here’s an excellent recipe for home made laminate floor cleaner that works a treat, especially for cleaning high gloss laminate flooring leaving it completely streak free: • 3 parts water to 1 part vinegar • 1 squirt of liquid dish detergent • put it all in a spray bottle and you’re good to go! • Making your own homemade laminate floor cleaner will save you from ever needing to buy an expensive manufacturer’s cleaner :)
