What maintenance is needed to care for these floor types?

Your new flooring will come with maintenance requirements. Whether it’s mopping or refinishing, maintenance will be dependant on the type of floors installed in your home.

Engineered Wood is cared for as you would hardwood flooring.

  • Use only a damp cloth or mop to clean, only using cleaners specified for engineered wood.
  • Practice daily dusting and sweeping to avoid buildup.
  • Avoid scratches in your flooring by keeping pads under furniture and pets nails trimmed.
  • Wipe up spills immediately to prevent staining.
  • Close your blinds to avoid direct sunlight damaging the wood.


Porcelain or Ceramic Tile doesn’t require any intensive maintenance if cared for properly.

  • Avoid using abrasive cleaners to prevent damage.
  • Sweep, mop, and vacuum every few days, if not daily.
  • Use vinegar and baking soda solutions to cut through grime.
  • Apply sealer yearly if unglazed porcelain.


Laminate Flooring shouldn’t be exposed to large amounts of water when cleaning to avoid buckling in the flooring.

  • Avoid use of steam mops, wet mops, and polishing or buffering treatments.
  • Use cleaners made specifically for laminate floor care.
  • Remove sticky substances by hardening with ice then cleaning with a plastic scraper, taking care not to press too hard.
