Pergo Laminate Floor Cleaner is BACK!!!

Pergo Laminate floors, like other fine furnishings in your home, require proper care to keep them looking their best. When you follow the Pergo Laminate floor easy cleaning and maintenance instructions, you'll find taking care of your Pergo floor a snap!

Regular Maintenance
The surface layer of Pergo flooring is hard and compact, so dirt and dust do not adhere to it easily. The following simple steps are usually all it takes to keep your floor clean.
  • For general cleaning and heavy duty cleaning, use a Vacuum with the hard-floor attachment of your vacuum cleaner and wipe clean with a Bona MicroFiber Mop and the Pergo Floor Cleaner.
  • Do not use soap or detergent-based cleaners, wax-based products or any type of polish on Pergo floors, as they leave a dull, filmy residue.
  • There is never a need to wax or refinish your Pergo floor.
Protect the Pergo Laminate Floor
While Pergo flooring is remarkably durable, there is of course no such thing as an indestructible flooring material. There are a few simple protective measures that are important to keep your floor looking new.
  • To protect your Pergo floor from surface scratches, place walk-off area rugs or mats inside any exterior doorway to collect small bits of gravel that may track in on shoes.
  • Use felt floor protectors on the legs of chairs, sofas, TV stands, tables and other easily movable furniture.
  • Replace plastic casters on chairs with rubber wheels and lift rather than slide heavy objects across the floor.
  • Minor damage to a Pergo plank or tile can be easily repaired with a laminate Finishing Putty.
Spot Removal
Pergo stain resistance means peace of mind for you and easy clean up. So, when the inevitable happens, use the following guide for stain and spot removal:
  • For chocolate, grease, juice, cordials and wine - Use Pergo Floor Cleaner.
  • For tar, markers, crayon, lipstick, oil, shoe polish, ink, nail polish and cigarette burns - use acetone/nail polish remover or denatured alcohol. Then clean with Pergo Floor Cleaner. Note: Do not use acetone on Pergo wall base or quarter round.
  • For candle wax and chewing gum - let harden and scrape carefully with a blunt plastic scraper. Then clean with Pergo Floor Cleaner.
