PLEASE NOTE: ALL OF LAMINATE FLOORs nz CAN’T USE ANY STEAM MOP OR KITCHEN CLEANER!
General cleaning and care instructions for laminate
Sufficiently sized textile clean-off zones of at least 4 to 6 running metres can reduce the amount of dirt brought into a property by up to 80%, significantly influencing the utility value of the flooring and the cleaning costs.
firstly, laminate flooring should be cleaned regularly, with the nature and extent of the cleaning depending on the area of application and frequency of use.
Cleaning and protective measures during construction: During the construction phase, dust, sand and any other loose dirt should be removed with a broom or vacuum cleaner. Once laid, the surface should be protected with a suitable cover during subsequent interior construction work.
Following the installation process, the floor covering must be protected against damage via suitable protective covers in areas that are regularly frequented during the construction phase. Moisture trapped under items of furniture must be avoided.
Chairs, tables and furniture legs must be protected with suitable protector pads or underlay.
Chair castors as well as chair and furniture gliders must be regularly maintained. Contact areas of chair and furniture gliders must lie completely flat and be rounded at the edges. Metal gliders can corrode when exposed to moisture and cause stains.
In the case of underfloor heating, the temperature of the surface covering must not persistently exceed 27 °C. This also applies if there is a carpet on top – trapped heat poses a danger!
There is no need to treat laminate floors nz. The surface does not require a protective film. Film-forming care products are prohibited as they impair use and make the surfaces harder to clean.
Clean the floor with a brush or vacuum cleaner to remove loose dust and dirt. Vacuuming is generally sufficient for everyday cleaning purposes. For more thorough everyday cleaning, we recommend using a cleaning agent such as BONA laminate cleaner or similar products. Please observe the instructions of the care product manufacturer!
When carrying out wet cleaning, please use water and cleaning agents sparingly (wipe with a damp cloth). Do not use any abrasive microfibres (scratching / scraping) to wipe the surface. Do not use film-forming cleaning agents.
For persistent stains, we recommend BONA stain remover or similar products.
Important, today man spends most of his time in closed buildings. Living, working, eating, sleeping – everything takes place indoors. The indoor climate is therefore important for human well-being and depends on various factors:
This also applies to maintaining the value of your floor covering, so please ensure a healthy room climate of approx. 20 °C at 50 – 65 % relative humidity. The use of suitable humidifiers based on the evaporation principle is recommended. If the recommended relative humidity is not reached for a longer period of time (this is particularly the case during the heating periods), the dimensions and shape of floor coverings that consist mostly of natural raw materials and are not firmly bonded to the substrate may change.
The compatibility of adhesive tape with laminate floor coverings should be checked in advance with the relevant manufacturer or the user of the floor covering.
The non-slip properties and safe-footing characteristics of floor coverings are significantly influenced by the application of dirt, cleaning frequency and the cleaning/maintenance products used. Please only use coordinated cleaning and maintenance products from one manufacturer. Abrasive cleaning powders, sanitary cleaners, acids and strong solvents can damage the covering surface or items of furniture.
All LAMINATE floors coverings demonstrate excellent light fastness. It is not possible, however, to rule out the possibility of fading/changes in colour in areas exposed to strong UV light on a long-term basis. Sufficiently sized shades can be used to minimize or prevent fading and changes in colour.
Pigmented wound and hand disinfectants as well as hair dye or bleaching agents containing peroxide can cause irreversible discolouration. If you are unsure about using chemical colouring substances or food products, you should carry out a resistance test on an inconspicuous part of the flooring or on a not yet installed piece first.
