As an avid fan of the New England Patriots and a longtime fan of all things Patriots, cleaning Pergo floors on a regular basis can become a chore. A once often used flooring option is now relegated to the “thoroughly” as a result of years of wear and tear.
Cleaning Pergo floors isn’t that difficult, and can be done from the comfort of your own home or from the convenience of a store. These floors are a popular choice because they are durable and relatively easy to maintain. Here’s how to clean Pergo floors:
One of the most common ways to clean them is with a wire brush. Simply push the brush against the edge of the carpet, be sure to allow it to go in and grab hold of the top of the carpet. You can either use a roller brush or a scrubbing pad. It doesn’t matter what you use, just make sure that it has a soft bristled brush head and is relatively coarse.
Another popular way to clean Pergo floors is by hand. You can simply pick up any or all of the various types of cleaner you are using and rub them onto the carpet. You don’t need to use all of the cleaners available because there will likely be one that works well. Just make sure to use plenty of water, and be sure to scrub very gently.
If you do decide to use a more professional floor cleaner, it would be a good idea to have them pick up a bag full of soapy water to use when they come to clean the floors. Also, to increase the effectiveness of the cleaners, they may also spray the floor with liquid detergent. This will help to prevent damage to the floor. Be sure to pick up a bottle of each type of cleaner before they arrive to make sure you have what you need for the job. If they don’t have what you need, it’s unlikely they will be able to get what you need.
The key to how to clean Pergo floors is to pay attention to the grain of the carpet, and to be sure that it is well sealed. If the area of the floor isn’t sealed well, it is likely to be damaged, as dirt and grime can easily be sucked into the seams and cause damage. This can result in the carpet backing wearing out and even rot.
This isn’t the best advice, however. There are better ways to go about this and it’s important to take time to understand the best ways to clean Pergo floors.
