While laminate is a more inexpensive flooring option than hardwood, it is still an investment in your home

Caring for your Richmond Laminate
One of the advantages of purchasing Richmond flooring in Toronto is how easy it is to maintain
Laminate is an extremely hygienic material, which makes it ideal for allergy sufferers or individuals with respiratory disorders. The following tips will help you keep your laminate looking new for many years to come:
- Vacuum or sweep your laminate floors regularly to remove dirt and debris.
- Use a damp cloth to remove stubborn stains or footprints. Be sure that your cloth is damp, not wet.
How To Remove Stubborn Stains?
What is safe for your laminate flooring?
Use a specially formulated laminate flooring cleaner, as this assures that it is safe for laminate flooring. Use acetone or other solvents containing alcohol to remove stubborn stains. Place a doormat at each entryway to protect your laminate from the elements. Use soft rubber chair castors to ensure that your furniture does not scratch your laminate when moved.
Avoid drying out your flooring
Be sure that your room temperature does not exceed 20–22 °Cin order to avoid drying out your flooring.The humidity should not exceed 30-55%.To achieve this, a humidifier is recommended during the colder months when the furnace is running. It is important to be aware that failure to maintain the recommended temperature and humidity level may result in the formation of gaps in your laminate. Conversely, too much moisture may also damage your floors, which is why a dehumidifier is recommended if your laminate is installed in a damp environment such as a basement.
