CLEANING & CARE
From cleaning laminate and vinyl, to spot and stain removal on hardwood, follow the guidelines below to care for your floor properly so you can enjoy your Pergo for a lifetime.
Aged Silver Mist Oak
Use floor protectors or felt covers on chair legs, sofas, TV stands, tables and other easily moveable furniture.Replace plastic or metal casters on chairs with rubber wheels. Lift, don't slide, heavy objects across floors.
Trim your pet's nails as recommended by your veterinarian.
- SPILLS AND SUNLIGHT
Promptly remove spills using hardwood flooring cleaner and a clean cloth. To help preserve the original look and color of your hardwood flooring, close window treatments during hours of direct sunlight and avoid excessive lighting where possible.
Avoid wearing spiked heels or shoes in need of repair while walking on hardwood floors as they could scratch the surface.
- AREA RUGS
Place walk-off area rugs or protective mats at all exterior entrances to collect small bits of sand and gravel that may be tracked into the home. Alternate and clean mats regularly to avoid turning them into a soil source themselves or causing stains under the rug. Make sure your rugs have a solid back, so soil doesn't sift through the rug to come in contact with the floor. Clean under interior area rugs and mats regularly, as soil underneath them will have an abrasive effect on the floor finish.
- MINOR DAMAGE OR DINGS
Treat minor damage to a Pergo Hardwood plank with a repair kit made for wood flooring.
- LIQUID MESSES
Quickly wipe up pet or water accidents from your Pergo hardwood floors with a cotton cloth to prevent the floor from absorbing moisture. Wipe away remaining residue with a lightly damp cloth.
- PET STAINS
For set pet waste stains, use a clean cloth to dab a small amount of hydrogen peroxide on the stain.
- SET STAINS
For larger stains that are totally set, talk to your local Pergo store about replacing the damaged floor area.
- REMOVE DIRT AND DUST
Vacuum or sweep your Pergo hardwood floor to remove dirt and dust. Use a vacuum or hard-floor vacuum attachment without a rotary brush head or moving parts, as these could scratch or damage your floor.
- USE HARD SURFACE CLEANER TO REMOVE DIRT AND OTHER RESIDUE
Apply Hardwood Flooring Cleaner directly to the dry flooring mop, not the hardwood floor. Use a back and forth motion with the mop on the hardwood. When the mop cover becomes soiled, simply replace it with a clean one. Cleaning the hardwood floor with a soiled cover could cause streaking. The covers are generally re-usable, so simply throw the cover in the wash and dry as you would any towel.
