1.) Wet mopping should be avoided, as should the use of soap and abrasive cleaners.
2.) A tough coating is applied to all laminate floors and it is this that provides long lasting protection against scratching and gouging.
3.) Furniture items should never be dragged across laminate flooring for this may cause deep gouging, which again is likely to be cause for premature repair or replacement.
4.) If you expect your floor to be subjected to heavier than normal use you may want to use an area rug on the area that gets the most foot traffic.
5.) Be sure to clean up liquid spills as soon as they occur otherwise they may seep into joints causing them to become weakened or damaged.
