Laminate Laminate Maintenance

General, daily maintenance involves sweeping with a soft broom or using a vacuum cleaner with the bristles down.

When cleaning your floor, it is important that you use the recommended maintenance product, available from your place of purchase.

For a more thorough clean use a barely damp micro-fibre mop, ensuring that you wipe off any excess moisture on the floor as soon as possible.

Weekly cleaning: dry

We recommend the Quick-Step microfibre cleaning pad for regular dry maintenance. The dry pad can be used to control abrasive grit and debris which can speed up the wear of your floor. Alternatively, a soft broom or vacuum with soft bristles is also effective.

Do not use impregnated disposable cloths. These often contain oily residues that can retain dirt and marks, especially in critical light.

Monthly cleaning: slightly damp

We recommend damp cleaning the entire floor once or twice a month. Use water sparingly, too much water is unnecessary and may make the task more difficult. We recommend a flat style ‘flipper’ mop with a microfibre pad. Use 1 capful mixed into 1/2 a bucket of water, soak the pad and wring out throughly by hand. Move across the floor remembering to rinse the pad head frequently, especially on large or very dirty floors. Excessive moisture on the surface of your Quick-Step floor should be removed with a clean dry cloth.

Protecting your floor

In addition, we recommend the use of dirt trapping mats at external entrances and felt floor pads under all moving fixtures. It is also a good idea to place vinyl chair mats under desks where castor wheels are used in an office environment. Either that or ensure your office chairs are fitted with “soft wheels”. Put simply, an ounce of prevention will help to keep your floor looking its’ best all the time!

Damp cleaning for Quick-Step laminate floors with Hydroseal technology

Quick-Step floors with HydroSeal technology have a waterproof surface and are ideal for bathrooms, kitchens, hallways, etc. Cleaning these floors with a wet mop or steam mop is permitted but not recommended.

If a wet mop is used always ensure a dry cloth is used to remove surface moisture after cleaning.

A steam mop should only be used on low, and must have a soft cloth fitted over the steam jets. Steam mops are not permitted on Quick-Step Classic and Quick-Step Eligna ranges.

If you are unsure if wet or steam mops are permitted for your particular floor contact your flooring retailer.

Remove any water within 24 hours. For the Classic/Eligna ranges: remove water within 12 hours.

  • Work along the length of the planks.
  • Rinse the pad frequently, especially on large or very dirty floors.
  • As a general rule, try to avoid foot traffic until the floor is completely dry.
