How do you clean laminate flooring?

Whilst laminate flooring may look as good as hardwood, it should not be approached in the same way for cleaning as the surface can’t be refinished if it gets damaged or stained. Laminate floors should be gently cleaned with as little water as possible and any spills should be wiped us as soon as they are made.
