How To Keep Your Laminates Clean

For many homeowners in Singapore, laminates are increasingly becoming an option to renew the look of their existing furniture on cabinets, shelves, walls and more. If you are considering the idea of laminate sheets in your own home, this will definitely be an article you want to keep reading on.

The Why And The How

When it comes to making the most of your money, regular cleaning will help you maintain the beautiful appearance of your laminates in years to come. Did you know that with time, dust buildup will make your laminates appear dull? Stains will also become more and more a challenge to remove when overlooked. The good news is, maintaining your laminates does not have to be a daunting task. In fact, laminates are generally easy to clean, especially when done frequently.

To begin, you may want to remove any dust that has settled on your laminate surface as a start. A microfibre duster is a great tool to have when it comes to getting rid of dust. Without making a mess, there will also be less dust lingering in the air when you use a microfibre duster for cleaning. This is a must-do step if your laminates are applied on areas like a feature wall and TV console table.

For normal maintenance cleaning, use soapy water and cloth to gently wipe down all surfaces. As this may leave streaky marks or water stains behind, don’t forget to wipe over again with a dry cloth. Additionally, make sure to change the water once it starts to look murky. If you have tough stains to remove, you can add Cif to non-gloss surfaces. For high-gloss surfaces, use alcohol-based solutions such as thinners instead.

After cooking, you may see oil stains on the laminate surfaces of your kitchen cabinets and shelves, leaving residues even in hard-to-reach areas. For stubborn grease stains, if Cif is not working, opt for grease cleaning solutions to dissolve them instead. This might just do the trick!

One thing to take note is to avoid using abrasive cloths or strong chemical cleaners. Even when done gently, they may scratch against your laminate surface, which can leave room for dust and debris to get trapped in.
