How do I clean and maintain my PERGO® floor?

To clean, an occasional damp (not wet) mop, quick sweeping or light vacuuming with the hard floor attachments are usually all it takes. Do not pour liquid directly on the floor or use an excessively wet mop that will puddle or leave moisture standing on the floor. Be sure to squeeze the water out of the mop thoroughly before mopping, and rinse the mop frequently.

PERGO® floors must never be waxed, polished, sanded or refinished, and never use a steam, wet or jet mop when cleaning. Do not use detergents, abrasive cleaners, soaps, waxes or polishes.
