How to Spring-Clean Your Laminate Floors
Ah, the joys of spring cleaning! Said no one, ever. Apart from maybe a very determined and slightly OCD mole who lived near a riverbank somewhere in England.
The term ‘spring cleaning’ conjures up all kinds of images: clean, uncluttered surfaces and storage areas, strange little headscarfs that only come out from the drawer once a year, overwhelming top-to-toe cleaning sessions. And that’s just the kitchen! Your floors need special treatment too. Whether you have hardwood, laminate, tile, carpet, or vinyl, there are some easy floor treatments that will help you restore your floor to tippety-top condition.
BCS are experts in cleaning all types of flooring surfaces and we’re bouncing up and down to share with you some of our top tips and secrets for getting your floors Spring-ready in a jiffy!
Laminate Floor Treatments
•Begin your laminate floor treatment by sweeping or vacuuming the entire floor area. If needed, use a vacuum attachment to get all the sneaky nasties out of the edges and corners.
•Dilute a wood-cleaning product in a clean bucket, taking care to follow the instructions on the package. For laminate floors, you can also use a mild solution of hot water with either PineSol or bleach and a few drops of dish soap.
•Using a damp sponge, rag mop or (our favorite) a microfiber mop, dip it into the cleaning product and wash the floor with it. Avoid leaving standing water.
•If needed, rinse the floor off with plain hot water by filling a bucket with water and using a clean mop.
•Wipe up any excess water. This is extremely important with laminate floors, as excess water left to stand on the surface can seep between the joins and warp the panels.
Part of the appeal of laminate flooring is the ease with which they can be cleaned. But if the thought of wielding a mop or steaming machine makes you break out in a cold sweat, give the professionals at BCS a call at 801 561 1730. We’ll have your floors spruced up for you in a jiffy, with not a mop-bucket in sight!
