Care & Maintenance Instructions for Laminate and Hardwood Flooring

You can protect your Mannington Laminate Floor by following these easy guidelines.

 

  • Place rugs or floor mats on heavy traffic areas to avoid excess wear and tear.

  • Place doormats on both sides of outside entrances.

Mannington Laminate Floors come as close as possible to being maintenance free and are extremely resistant to wear and stains. Here's how to keep yours looking like new.

 

  • Important: Never wax, polish, sand, or lacquer your Mannington Laminate Floor.

  • Spot clean your floor as needed and completely clean several times a year with Mannington Award Series® Cleaner.

  • Occasionally vacuum or sweep to eliminate loose dust and debris.

  • Wipe soiled spots with a cloth dampened with clean water or Mannington Award Series® Cleaner diluted in water. Make sure the cloth is thoroughly wrung out. Never flood the floor with water or cleaner.

  • After damp cleaning, dry the floor thoroughly with a clean cloth.

  • Remove tough, stubborn stains such as paint, adhesive, asphalt, oil, etc. with alcohol, acetone, or nail polish remover.

  • Never wax, polish, or use soap. Doing so may damage the wearsurface, causing it to be slippery or to have unattractive smudges.

  • Never use a steam cleaner.

  • Never use scouring powder products, steel wool, or abrasives.

  • Do not treat or seal Mannington Laminate Floors after they have been installed.

Take a look at how easily even tough stains can be removed from our floors:

Start with the first procedure listed.

Only do the procedures necessary to resolve the problem. Always use a clean white cloth for wiping up stains, and turn it frequently to avoid spreading the stain.

Rinse with clean water and allow area to dry between procedures.

For items not covered by the following chart, call Mannington Consumer Services at 1-800-FLOOR-US (1-800-356-6787).

 


Stain/Problem

Juice, wine, grease, chocolate

Cigarette burns, asphalt, shoe polish, paint, crayon, ink, dried foods, nail polish

Dampen a rag with alcohol or nail polish remover and spot clean

Candle wax, chewing gum

Allow to harden and gently scrape with a plastic scraper.

You can protect your Mannington Wood Floor by following these easy guidelines.

 

  • Use rugs at workstations, pivot-points (e.g., stair landings, room entries), and high-traffic areas to reduce wear, especially if you have a large family or indoor pets.

  • Use mats at all exterior doors to keep sand, dirt, grit, grease, and oil outside.

  • Keep pet's nails trimmed and paws clean and free of dirt, gravel, grease, oil, and stains.

  • Place protective pads beneath furniture legs and feet to reduce scratches and dents.

  • Use a dolly and protective sheets of plywood when moving heavy objects, furniture, or appliances.

  • Make certain furniture casters are clean and operate properly (a minimum 1" width is recommended.)

  • Remove shoes with spiked or damaged heels before walking on floor.

  • Exposure to the sun and its UV rays accelerates the oxidation and aging of wood and fabrics. This causes the stain and/or wood to fade and/or change color. We recommend you rearrange rugs and furniture periodically so the floor ages evenly. The Mannington warranty does not cover damage from the sun and UV rays

Here are some simple things you can do to keep your Mannington Wood Floor looking like new.

 

  • Sweep or vacuum regularly, since built-up grit can damage the finish. The vacuum head must be a soft brush or felt type. Be certain the wheels of the vacuum are clean and do not damage the flooring. Do not use a vacuum with a beater bar head.

  • Important: Never wet mop or flood your floor with water or other products. This can severely damage the floor.

  • Remove spills promptly using a soft cloth.

  • The use of Mannington care and maintenance products is highly recommended: UltraClean™ and UltraFinish II™.

  • Important: Do not use oil soaps, liquid, or paste wax products or other household cleaners that contain lemon oil, tung oil, or ammonia since the Mannington warranty does not cover damage caused by non-recommended products.

Even stubborn stains can be removed from your Mannington Wood Floor quickly and easily. Here's how to keep yours looking like new:

Start with the first procedure listed.

Only do the procedures necessary to resolve the problem. Always use a clean white cloth for wiping up stains, and turn it frequently to avoid spreading the stain.

Rinse with clean water and allow area to dry between procedures.

For items not covered by the following chart, call Mannington Consumer Services at 1-800-FLOOR-US (1-800-356-6787).
