Son buying a flat with laminate floors, moving in next w/e. Mum giving the place an initial clean through...
What do people use on laminate - I understand that must only give a wipe over and that you shouldnt use something that gives it a shine as then difficult to remove - any good recommendations please?

  1. Ask
  2. Laminate

Hometek steam Mop, so easy cleans dries in sseconds does not get wet at all recommended for laminate, real wood and or course tiles, Duck and Co brilliant after sales.

bucket of water with a cap of pledge soapy wood cleaner in it, wring the mop out til just damp then clean floor. voila. lol

I use wet wipes, asda have 100 wet wipes in a pack for £1.02p - these are excellent for cleaning laminate, I know you end up down on the floor on your knees, but they do the job great!

I use direct floort cleaner. You can buy it anywhere. Spray in on and mop away and lively clean floor. People are always commenting on it. I tried the wood floor polish on it when I first had it and ended up replacing the floor. HUGE mistake!!!:)

if I go for a spray cleaner what sort of mop? Can I use it with a e-cloth type mop from Lakeland? Or some other microfibre type mop? I have a feeling the floor will need a good going over to start with but dont want to buy lots of differenet things. My head is reeling!

Excellent idea...hardly practical for the majority of people. :w00t:

I have got a vileda mop a sponge one. I have tried the rag mops and they are rubbish and leave the floor ringing wet. The key to all of this is that the floor is left almost dry, wet enough to clean it but dry enough that it does not seep into the joins. This means that the floor may start to rise as the wood expands. Hope this helps!!!:thumbsup:
