Follow these steps to help minimize maintenance and maintain the beauty of your laminate floors.
Prevent indentations and scratches by using non-staining floor protectors on the legs of chairs, appliances and all heavy furniture. Floor protectors should be at least 1” in diameter. Periodically clean protectors to remove grit that may become embedded and cause scratching.
Place walk-off mats at entrances. Mats and area rugs should have a non-slip rubberized backing and be labeled as non-staining.
We recommend the use of a hard surface (non-studded), non-rubber chair mat to protect your floor from office chairs with casters.
Keep pets’ nails trimmed.
Remove shoes with cleats, spikes, or pointed high heels before walking on the floor.
Sweep the floor regularly with a soft bristle broom to remove loose dirt.
Clean your floors periodically with a professional vinyl floor cleanser. Lions Floor recommends a P/H Neutral vinyl cleanser, such as Bona®.
For everyday cleaning, a damp mop moistened with warm water will suffice.
Do not use a steam mop.
Never use a high speed buffer.
Never push, pull, or drag furniture, appliances, or other
items across the floor. Always lift and carry furniture or heavy items.
