Keep it looking good

Laminate flooring has a protective coating which makes it resilient to stains and other damage, and needs only routine care to keep it looking good for years,

Daily dry mopping and regular cacuuming will keep dust and dirt at bay, occasionally, using a towell soaked and squeezed in warm water or a slightly damp mop will get rid of any stray foot printsor other marks, you can use a special laminate floor cleaning kit for this,
