  • Arranging for the disconnection of gas appliances and icemakers.
  • Determining if any change to the height of the floor require adjustments to doors in order for them to close properly.
  • Ensuring the removal of items in storage areas and closets where the floor is to be resurfaced.
  • Make certain drapes, wall hangings and pictures are removed from walls.
  • Verify that your in-home temperature is appropriate for installation.

Care and Cleaning

Laminate flooring brings the beauty of a wood floor and the easy maintenance of a resilient floor together so you can have the style you want and the carefree maintenance you need. While laminate flooring is remarkably durable, there is of course no such thing as an indestructible flooring material. By observing a few precautions, and using the cleaning and maintenance program recommended by the manufacturer, you can expect years of beauty from your laminate floor.

For general cleaning, use a damp dust mop or wipe occasionally with a damp cotton or cloth mop. If heavier cleaning is needed, an occasional damp mopping with the manufacturer's recommended cleaning products is suggested. Do not use detergent-based cleaners, wax-based products or any type of polish as they leave a dull, filmy residue. Do not flood your floor with water.

To help eliminate fine particles of dirt and grit that act like sand paper and will scratch any floor, vacuum or sweep daily. The vacuum head must be a felt or brush type. Be certain that the wheels of the vacuum are clean and do not damage the finish.

Remove spills promptly using a soft cloth and cleaning products recommended by the manufacturer. And be sure to keep pet nails trimmed and paws clean and free of dirt and gravel that may scratch your floor. Place protective pads beneath furniture legs, tables, and other easily movable furniture to reduce scratches. We recommend you to replace plastic casters on chairs with rubber wheels and always lift rather than slide heavy objects across the floor.

Remove shoes with spiked or damaged heels before walking on the floor. Spike high-heel shoes may cause damage to laminate floors due to the extremely high compressive force they generate.

Preventative maintenance is also important with laminate flooring. For instance, use mats in high traffic areas, like an entryway, to help collect dirt, sand, grit, and other substances such as oil or asphalt. Area rugs are also a good idea for protection, but you might want to use a non-skid rug underlayment. When damage does occur, though, it can be repaired. Minor scratches or dents to a plank can be repaired using a flooring touchup or color-fill kit. It is a filler material that's color coordinated to the color of your floor that, when used properly, is almost invisible. The repaired area will hold up to traffic and wear just like the rest of the floor. If the plank is too bad and must be replaced, usually this is not a problem. Joints can be disassembled, allowing a new piece to be put in.
