In a nutshell: To protect, maintain, and clean your new laminate flooring, start with felt floor protectors on your furniture to prevent scratches and dents. Use a cleaning kit like the Shaw R2x Vibrant Hard Surface Mop Kit and clean once a week. You can use the dust pad every few days. Shaw's kit will work on most laminates but always follow the recommendations of the manufacturer. Do not use water on most laminates.
In a nutshell: To protect, maintain, and clean your hardwood floors, start with floor protectors to help prevent scratches. If you do get a scratch, use a touch-up pen to make it unnoticeable.

In a nutshell: To protect, maintain, and clean your new luxury vinyl tile (LVT) waterproof flooring, you will need a pH neutral cleaner. We recommend using a cleaning kit like the Shaw R2x Vibrant Hard Surface Mop Kit and clean once a week. You can also use the dust pad every few days. Shaw's product will work on most LVT but always follow the recommendations of the manufacturer to protect your warranty. Also use felt floor protectors on your furniture to prevent scratches and dents.
In a nutshell: To protect and maintain your new carpet, vacuum twice a week with a well-maintained vacuum and the right type of vacuum for your carpet. Remove stains using a stain-protectant cleaner, like Nylac. When using, be sure not to scrub the carpet which will push the stain deeper into the carpet. Instead blot it. To maintain your warranty and investment, most manufacturers require steam cleaning every 18 to 24 months. Use a certified carpet cleaner and save your receipts.
