How to clean laminate floors and bring out their shine and beauty with added texture

Wondering what’s the best way to clean laminate floors? With Vim it won’t just be clean – using our finishing touches, it’ll be beautifully clean.

For making a subtle statement in a room, there’s nothing like a beautiful, glossy laminate floor. Though they attract a bit of a reputation as being difficult to clean, with the right product it’s easy to restore their beauty – it’ll light up the whole room, too.

How to clean laminate floors

Whether you’ve accidently spilt a cup of coffee or just want to top up the shine, Vim® Oxy-Gel® All-Purpose is the product to use for a great way to clean a laminate floor –leaving you with a fresh scent and brilliant shine.

You will need:

  • A bucket

  • Vim Oxy-Gel® All-Purpose

  • A floor mop

  • A cloth

How to clean:

  1. Add three caps of Vim Oxy-Gel®All-Purpose into half a bucket of water (that’s about 5 litres).

  2. Plunge your mop in the water, squeezing out the excess before sweeping it over your floor.

  3. For the shiny finish, use a dry cloth to wipe the surface down afterwards.

The finishing touches

With a clean laminate floor, you have the opportunity to add a focal point that really makes a statement. It’s the perfect place for a touch of something beautiful, as you can see in our video.

Adding texture and comfort

  • A few artfully arranged floor cushions in different sizes or heights, placed in a corner or facing a coffee table provide extra seating space, as well as allowing you to introduce texture and comfort to the room.

  • Or a rug: whether it’s luxurious and shaggy or bright and embellished, it’ll let you enjoy soft textures as well as that glossy, smooth surface – the best of both worlds.

Make the books you love a centrepiece

  • For another unique touch, pile your favourite books by the walls.

  • Not only will it create a talking point when guests are over, but it adds a stamp of your personality, too.
