Cleaning laminate flooring
I have tried everything to keep my laminate floor, but it never works. Every time I clean it, it gets a cloudy haze on the floor instead of shine. Any suggestions?
It sounds to me like you might actually be using too much cleaning product on your floor.
Have you ever washed your floor, and then when it is almost dry, with just a hint of moisture left on it you walk over it and it feels almost sticky? I have done this before, and this happens because soap or detergent is still left on the floor that didn't get rinsed away, and it actually acts as a dirt magnet making the floor grimy and dirtier than it was before very quickly.
Try using less cleaner next time, and perhaps even using a second bucket of water for rinsing the mop for a second run through and see if that helps.
If you had a waxed floor (which I am assuming you don't because you say you have laminate floors) I might think you have gotten soap or detergent in the wax which has made the wax turn cloudy. If that occurred the only way to fix it would be to strip the wax, and then begin again.
Does anyone else have any ideas of what could be the problem? Or how have you solved a similar problem? Any products you would recommend or steer clear of?Photo by chadmagiera
