Best Way to Clean Laminate Floor

  • Transcript

    LESLIE: Alright. Now we’ve got Sue in New York on the line who’s got a problem with cleaning laminate flooring. How can we help you?

    SUE: How do you – what’s the best way to clean a laminate floor?

    TOM: Damp-mopping it or with a very light cleaning chemical.

    SUE: Like what?

    LESLIE: Well, I would even say just vinegar and water.

    SUE: Vinegar and water?

    TOM: Yep.

    SUE: OK. Because plain water just doesn’t do it when you’ve got two big dogs.

    LESLIE: No, it doesn’t.

    TOM: No, I could see that.

    SUE: But vinegar will work?

    TOM: Yep, it sure does.

    LESLIE: Mm-hmm. Vinegar and water will work. Also, depending on the manufacturer of your flooring that you have in the house – like I know Armstrong has their own brand of laminate-floor cleaner, which is essentially a mix of things that are appropriate to that type of surface, that won’t cause chemical reactions in our – actually a soap base in there that gives you a little bit of extra cleaning oomph that you might need for the dogs.

    SUE: OK.

    LESLIE: So look at the brand; search them up online, whomever you’ve got. And I bet they’ve got one that you can get at a home center.

    SUE: Alright. Thank you.

    TOM: You’re very welcome. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
