Caring for your laminate

A little care and maintenance will keep your laminate flooring looking great for many years to come! Follow these simple tips to establish a preventative maintenance routine while preventing stains, damage, and more.

Daily Care tips

Start caring for your laminate by incorporating some basic preventative maintenance. Remove outdoor shoes before walking across your flooring so you don't track dirt inside your home. Take care when moving furniture across your laminate and consider using furniture pads to keep your floors from getting scratched or dented over time. Regularly vacuum using a manufacturer-approved appliance and mop (dry or wet, if your manufacturer has stated it's safe to do so) as needed.

What to do

(and what not to do)

DO sweep and vacuum frequently. Use your vacuum's attachments to get into edges and crevices.

DON'T use a vacuum with a beater bar, as this can scratch the surface of your laminate.

DO mop with warm water if your product is waterproof. DON'T forget to dry your flooring afterwards.

DO use a manufacturer-approved hard-surface cleaning product.

DON'T let spills sit! Always wipe them away as quickly as possible.

“We had a great experience with Carpet Mart and our new laminate floors. We were happy with the price and financing we received. I have always been cautious about having workers in my home and was constantly worried there would be a problem, but the installation went great and we were satisfied with the job the installation team (lead by Mike and Mike) did. Thank you!”


"We had an all around excellent experience with Carpet Mart. Our salesperson, Milton was kind and my daughter did not want to leave the store because of all the great children's toys they have in their kids area. The install team, Trevor, Nate and Clayton were awesome! They helped us find a quick solution when we had taken the wrong measurements of our room. I can tell that Carpet Mart is run by some very special individuals. God bless them!"
