How To Clean Laminate Floors Without Leaving A Film

Yes, it is certainly possible to thoroughly clean laminate floors without leaving a film! Just follow our step-by-step guide below.

Supplies Needed To Clean Laminate Floors

You will need all of the following supplies to properly clean your laminate floors:

  • Vacuum cleaner with a soft roller.
  • Floor mop featuring microfiber pads.
  • PU sealer solution.
  • Cleaning solution.
  • Cross linker for the PU sealer.
  • Small container for mixing solutions.
  • Paint brush with soft bristles.
  • Microfiber paint roller.

Step 1. Vacuum The Floor

  • Begin this process by simply cleaning the floor with a vacuum cleaner.
  • A vacuum with a soft roller is best for these delicate laminate floors.
  • Attach the soft roller and turn on the vacuum to start cleaning.
  • Move backward from one end of the floor to the other, making sure to not step on cleaned areas.
  • Completely remove any dust/debris from the flooring.

Step 2. Mop The Floor

  • Add cleaning solution to the water tank on the spray mop.
  • Dilute the solution with a small amount of water depending on the model you are using.
  • Add two and half cups of rubbing alcohol to help the liquid dry quickly.
  • Mop the floor by following the same patterns you previously vacuumed.
  • Avoid stepping in any mopped areas.
  • Press the spray handle to apply the cleaning solution periodically.
  • Let the floor dry out for a few minutes before moving on to the next step.

Step 3. Apply PU Sealer

  • Once the floor is both clean and dry, you can mix the cross linker with the PU sealer solution.
  • Pour them into one container and mix the substances with a proper ratio.
  • Apply the solution to the floor edges with a soft-bristle paint brush.
  • Dip and brush the PU sealer over the edges, keeping only a thin layer of the PU solution.
  • Pour out a certain amount of PU sealer and apply it with a paint roller.
  • Coat the entire flooring surface.
  • Let the floor dry for at least 2 hours.
  • You can apply an additional layer of coating once it has dried completely.

Step 4. Always Take Care Of The Floor

  • Taking care of the floor at all times is the last yet most important step.
  • Avoid walking on these floors with hard shoes and heels, if possible.
  • Clean the flooring regularly with water.
  • Mop the flooring daily.
