Laminate Care and Maintenance

A Mannington Laminate Floor is the closest thing there is to a "maintenance-free" floor. The melamine-impregnated surface with aluminum oxide makes it resistant to dirt and dust. Ordinarily vacuuming or sweeping is usually sufficient to keep the floor clean. If needed, occasionally clean with a cloth or mop (micro-fiber or terrycloth hooded) slightly moistened with a solution of clear, non-sudsy ammonia-based cleaner in one gallon of warm water. Mannington now approves the use of residential steam-based cleaners for the Restoration Collection®. 


Important Tips

  • Never flood the floor with water.

  • Do not use soap-based detergents, as these may leave a dull finish on your floor.

  • Do not use abrasive cleaners, steel wool, or scouring powder, as these may scratch your floor.

  • Never wax, polish, sand, or lacquer a Mannington Laminate Floor.

  • Use doormats outside each entrance to your home to prevent dirt, sand, grit, and other substances such as oil, asphalt, and driveway sealer from being tracked onto your floor.

  • For furnishings, use wide-bearing, non-staining floor protectors, such as clear, hard plastic or non-staining felt protectors for heavy furnishings.

  • Promptly remove all liquid spills, including pet urine.
