Laminate Care & Maintenance

Did you know that the makeup of laminate flooring varies based on manufacturer? While some newer laminate flooring products include waterproof finishes, most do not. Your care and maintenance routine should comply with the manufacturer’s guidelines. For example, Shaw laminate flooring includes wood, so it’s crucial to avoid using excessive moisture or a non-approved cleaning solution while caring for your laminate flooring.

Preventative Maintenance

  • Heavy appliances can cause dents or marks on your flooring over time; protect your flooring by placing heavy appliances on mats.
  • Use wide dollies whenever you need to move furniture across the floor.
  • Add an area rug or two to protect your flooring and increase its longevity while adding warmth to the room!
