The general cleaning of films from any laminate surface is an extensive process that requires a step by step strategy. This maintenance calls for vacuuming, mopping off dust and sweeping. Generic solutions to cleaning have lately advanced in the market. Major manufacturers for laminated surfaces have their specific instructions and kits that are used in cleaning. Quite a number of floor kits comprise of sprays that are applied to the solution used for cleaning and the mop where a cleaning solution is applied to the head. Wiping of the floor is then done by ensuring that all films and dirt are wiped clean and this is done properly.
In vacuum cleaning, it is encouraged never to use vacuum cleaners on laminate flooring that have a bar that rotates. Cleaning of films on laminate surfaces requires the use of a brush with soft bristles; this would help to clean the film before the mopping is carried out. Floors that suffer from numerous grits have been discovered to pose high chances of clogging on the wheels of a vacuum. The wheel is dragged gently on the flow surface to remove the possible films and dirt and at the same time prevent scratch marks to the floor surface.
Film stains can also be removed using a flat mop, where a cleaning solution purchased for a particular laminate surface is applied directly onto the mop. The solution is sprayed gently on the mop with the aid of a microfiber piece of cloth while ensuring that the mop does not become wet. This is then used to clean the film surface by scrubbing back and forth. After cleaning, the cleaner should ensure that the mop leaves some moisture around.
In case the laminated surfaces comprise of a wooden grain as a finishing material, the surface of the flooring needs to be mopped in a direction parallel to that of the grain. This is because a number of laminates have a glossy effect of grains on the upper layers of the finished wood type. Cleaning in the same direction as that of the grain helps to create a luster implication on the entire flooring. It is only cloths made of microfiber that can find their way into the glossy, beautiful grains. Cleaning a film, a stain or any other dirt is not that much effective when done across the grain lines.
In the general cleaning of films and other forms of dirt it is vital to consider a few guidelines. Use of wax, a varnish or a polish on a pre-finished layer needs very little cleaning. It is also important to be keen on the type of detergents that are being sold, as most of the detergents are simply generic.
