Cleaning Laminate Floors
Laminate floors usually contain four layers and because of this, laminate floor cleaning is a challenge for many businesses. Fortunately, Four Star General Cleaning Services commercial cleaners
can help! Starting from the bottom of the floor and working to the top, the 4 layers of laminate flooring are:
The 4 Layers of Laminate Flooring
- the wear layer (this is the most durable part of the floor; this layer provides protection against “wear and tear” and is stain resistant)
- the image layer (this is the image of the wood or stone that you see in the finished product)
- the core layer (this is the thickest part of the floor)
- the moisture-resistant layer
How to Cleaning Laminate Floors
If laminate floors are cleaned with the wrong materials (like soap and abrasive cleaners) ugly streak marks can be visibly seen “as a result of cleaning”. This is why it is best to hire a professional cleaning company in New York who specializes in laminate floor cleaning.
Because laminate floors have a thick core layer and thin wear layer, certain types of cleaning items are can ruin the floor. A wet mop, polish or wax, any kind of tough cleaner, soap-based cleaners, and standing water should not be used when laminate floors are washed. Instead it is best to clean laminate floors by sweeping with a soft brush or broom used only for indoors, by vacuuming dirt, using a dry mop
, and a (very wrung out) damp mop.
