Cleaning Laminate Floors

What's the best way to clean heavy duty laminated dark cherry flooring? I want to give it a shine with no dullness afterward? Thank you.

After having Shaw Laminate flooring installed throughout our home and seeing what different "cleaning experts" said how to clean to my floors, I contacted Shaw by email and asked them what to use and how to do the cleaning. The customer service Tech was very nice and said that they suggested...a Shaw product. I explained that I am very chemically sensitive so I can't handle a smell in the cleaner. She was kind enough to ship a small sample bottle along with a cleaning and care sheet which is what she said I should have been given by the Shaw retailer that sold and installed the product.

She also gave me the directions on what to use if I could not use their cleaning product. These are a summary of those directions:

Never use microfiber like Swiffer, always use 100% cotton

mop heads or cotton cloths. Vacuum without the beater bar, sweep or dust mop with a cotton mop head to get all the dust and dirt up. Then use Bona for laminate floors to clean areas that are dirty. Spray the Bona lightly, then let it sit a couple of seconds, then wipe with the cotton mop or cotton cloth. Polish with the cotton cloths to buff and bring your shine back. Never mop with water and/or any soap product. Do not use vinegar either.

Check with the manufacturer of your floor product as to how they want you to clean your floor. This is vital if you ever need to use the warranty that came with your laminate flooring product. Trust me they DO check on how the floor was cared for and cleaned when you file a claim against your warranty. It's there to protect your investment. It's worth your time to call or email your laminate flooring manufacturer.
