Keep it clean! A comparison of our most durable floors

04 July 2017

Our most durable flooring is laminate and vinyl flooring. How do you clean these floors?


Laminate is a durable type of flooring that is easy to clean

Pergo laminate flooring is coated with the TitanX™ coating, which means that it is difficult for dirt to stick to it and it is therefore easy to clean.

Vacuuming and mopping the floor is sufficient for everyday cleaning. To maintain the floor’s sheen, we recommend using Pergo’s cleaning products instead of soap or other cleaning agents because they can form a film on the surface.

To clean an extremely dirty or stained laminate floor, apply Pergo Allround Floor Cleaner, leave it to work for a few minutes and then wipe with a damp mop. Repeat if necessary and leave the floor to dry.


Laminate flooring has a sealed surface that makes the floor hygienic

Do not overdo it with the cleaning products – the surface of the floor is so dense that dirt cannot penetrate it, so there is no need to worry about bacteria collecting and growing. The flooring is naturally very hygienic.


Wax, polish and abrasive materials can affect the flooring

Never scrub the flooring with steel wool or any other abrasive materials, and do not treat it with wax or polish because these can affect the surface and appearance of the flooring.


Vinyl flooring is easy to clean and hygienic

Pergo vinyl flooring has the TitanV™ surface coating, which makes it easy to clean. Daily cleaning is easily accomplished by vacuuming and mopping. Here, we also recommend using Pergo’s cleaning product, which was specially developed for our vinyl flooring to maintain the appearance of the floor.


It is difficult for dirt to stick to our sealed vinyl flooring

The surface coating makes vinyl a durable type of flooring to which it is difficult for dirt to stick. You do not have to worry about bacteria growing either – vinyl flooring is hygienic so very little cleaning product is required.

If you remove stains quickly, it is easy to keep the floor clean, but if they have been there for a while, it is easy to remove them with Pergo Vinyl Floor Cleaner.


Never use abrasive products, wax or oil

Never use abrasive, polishing or corrosive cleaning agents or products containing oil or wax.
