A beautiful laminate floor completes the style of the interior, but to maintain its shine, regular maintenance is crucial. In this extensive article we share essential tips and tricks to clean and shine your laminate floor, so that your floor is not only cleaner but also looks like new.

The importance of regular maintenance

One of the foundations of a perfect-looking laminate floor is regular maintenance. By removing dirt and dust on a daily basis, you prevent wear and tear and maintain the original shine of your floor. It is also important that you regularly mop your laminate floor with the correct cleaning agent. Use a mop that does not allow you to mop too wet, such as the Techweise 4-in-1 Mop Set.

Let's start cleaning your floor right now.  Here is a step-by-step plan to clean your laminate floor with the right products.

Step-by-step plan for cleaning a laminate floor

1. Start by vacuuming your laminate floor

A soft broom or vacuum cleaner with a suitable parquet brush is ideal for removing dust and dirt from your laminate floor. Don't forget to treat the corners and edges thoroughly to prevent dirt build-up. When we're about to mop and steam, we don't want any dust in our mop. It is also advisable to take the skirting boards with you. Skirting boards produce a lot of dust, which means your floor will be dirty again in no time.

2. Use a steam cleaner to kill bacteria

After you have vacuumed, we will thoroughly clean the laminate floor. We use a steam cleaner with a mopping function for this. Steam cleaners, such as the Techweise NV286 steam cleaner , are not only durable but also extremely effective. They provide deep cleaning by using controlled steam pressure. You take all kinds of things inside with you and this therefore requires a deep cleaning.

An advantage of steaming is that the steam kills bacteria and removes stubborn dirt without damaging the laminate surface. In addition, you don't need any chemicals because hot steam does all the work. Super sustainable and effective!




2.1 Would you rather mop? Choose the right cleaning agent

If you don't have a steam cleaner (yet), mopping is also an excellent way to clean your laminate floor. Make sure you use laminate cleaner and not other soaps. Always mop with cold water, because hot water evaporates faster than soap, leaving greasy soap residue on the floor.

Always use a good mop. The Techweise 4-in-1 Mop Set offers optimal cleaning performance for cleaning a laminate floor. The microfibre mop cloths absorb dirt and liquids thoroughly, while the flexible pad ensures that every corner of the floor is reached. In addition, this mop contains a wringing system that allows you to determine the dryness of the pads yourself.

 3. Let the floor dry

After we have cleared the floor of dirt and bacteria, it is important that you let the floor dry thoroughly. This is important because we don't want to move dirt around the newly mopped floor. In addition, the laminate floor needs time to dry, otherwise the seams can swell, causing the floor to bulge. We absolutely want to prevent this!

Tips to prevent damage to your floor

Accidents happen, but with the right knowledge you can effectively tackle and prevent stains. In addition, this prevents permanent damage to your laminate floor, such as swelling.

1. Respond quickly to spills

An immediate response to spills prevents absorption and possible staining. Use an absorbent cloth and blot gently. Do not use chemical cleaning products as this can affect the shine of your floor.

2. Prevent scratches with protective felt pads

Place protective felt pads under furniture legs to prevent scratches on the laminate floor. It also helps not to slide the furniture across the floor, but to lift it when you sit down at the table. This means you can enjoy your laminate floor for many more years to come.


By following these practical tips for cleaning a laminate floor, you will not only maintain the beautiful appearance of your floor, your laminate floor will also last a lot longer. Don't forget to regularly care for your laminate and discover the benefits of advanced cleaning equipment such as the Techweise 4-in-1 Mop Set and the NV286 steam cleaner for a spotless floor that you can enjoy for years to come.
