Suitable cleaning and care product will not build up any layers and does not aggressively penetrate into the edge areas, or damage the laminate flooring.
To clean your laminate flooring it is recommended to use the brush attachment on your vacuum cleaner. Depending on the frequency of use and amount of dirt, you should also wipe the floor with a damp cloth or mop regularly. Take care to also clean the floor’s bevels in longitudinal direction.
Swelling will only occur if moisture acts on the boards for an extended period of time, therefore drying of the floor is recommended. Swelling along the edges is usually due to moisture penetrating the joints or surface of the boards from above.
Using unsuitable cleaning agents can cause layers to form, which over time may build up on the laminate flooring like a film and can thereby cloud the surface.
Only EGGER Laminate Flooring with Aqua+ Technology may be cleaned with a steam cleaner. However, it is important to constantly move the steam cleaner. It is not recommended to use a steam cleaner on other types of EGGER laminate flooring.
For stains such as coffee, red wine, etc use lukewarm water with a conventional acidic household cleaner if needed.
Tough stains can be removed locally with commercial stain removers such as white gas (benzene) or thinner. These products will not damage the laminate flooring in any way. However, always apply the solvents with a cloth and never directly onto the laminate flooring. Make sure there is sufficient exposure to fresh air and subsequently use water to neutralise the cleaned areas.
