While the laminate floor cleaners that are currently available do a good job at returning laminate flooring to their glory days, they are often only as good as the tool used for spreading them onto the floor in the first place. Fortunately, there are some pretty good wet mops that can accomplish that task quickly and easily. You can also take it a step further by using a steam cleaner.

Finding the best laminate floor cleaner can be somewhat of a pain. After all, this is a type of flooring that hates soap, water, abrasives and even too much water. However, it still needs to be cleaned, so I decided to check to see which cleaner did the best job and that’s when I stumbled upon Bona Stone Tile and Laminate Floor Cleaner – a cleaner I’ve used for tile and grout before but not laminate. Not until now, at least.
The first thing that I did when I received it was to prepare a solution of it. It’s a concentrated cleaner, so you need to mix it for best results and that’s exactly what I did. Under no circumstances do you want to use this cleaner full-strength on laminate flooring. Mixed, however, it did a marvelous job. It cleaned the floor and left a nice shine without any sort of build-up or residue. I was so impressed that I wanted to try it out on another laminate floor, so I went over to my friend’s house because she had a laminate floor that looked like stone. I asked her if I could do a review on her floor and she agreed, so I headed over there.
When I arrived at her house, I tested an inconspicuous corner of her floor to make sure this cleaner wasn’t going to do something horrible to it. Once I was convinced it was safe to use, I then cleaned her whole floor. And this cleaner performed the same way on her simulated stone laminate as it did on my wood laminate. It did a perfect job and I would gleefully recommend it to anyone looking for a cleaner for their laminate flooring.

I have to tell you that I’m always on the lookout for not only the best cleaner for laminate floors but also the best one for my hardwood ones as well. Which is why I was so pleased to come across Bruce Hardwood and Laminate Floor Cleaner; A cleaner that’s supposed to clean both surfaces. Needless to say, I just couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and give it a try.
The first thing that caught my attention about this price was that it wasn’t concentrated. It was meant to be used full-strength on wood and laminate floors. And to be honest, I had mixed feelings about that. One, that means that the 64-ounce bottle I bought can’t be stretched with water, so it’s pretty expensive and two, I was worried that it would damage my floors. But I had to see how it works, so I tested it on a small corner of my floors and when I noticed it didn’t harm them, I then did all my floors.
After I finished all of my floors, I noticed just how beautiful they looked. It not only cleaned my laminate floors without streaking but it also cleaned my hardwood floors and made them look very nice. It did a great job removing dirt from the urethane surface and didn’t leave the floors dull like so many other cleaners have done in the past.
In conclusion, I really have to give two thumbs up to this laminate and wood floor cleaner. While it was somewhat pricey, it did clean both surfaces marvelously and didn’t streak or dull them. It’s a product I think is worth checking out.

I have tried out several different Black Diamond cleaning products and have been fairly happy with many of them, so it really wasn’t a difficult decision to try out Black Diamond Wood & Laminate Floor Cleaner and see if it was the best cleaner for laminate floors, as well as my polyurethane sealed wood floors.
The first thing I noticed about this product was that it wasn’t concentrated, so I could use it full-strength on all my floors and that’s exactly what I did. Following the directions, I followed the following protocol: I cleaned the floor in sections – 4-feet by 6-feet at a time and my results were pretty positive.
As I used the product, I noticed that it had a really mild scent and I have to say that was refreshing. A lot of floor cleaners have a really strong chemical scent to them. I’m glad that this one was pleasant to use.
As far as cleaning goes, this product really does a good job. It cleaned both my sealed hardwood floors and my laminate flooring. It picked up dirt, dried quickly and didn’t leave any annoying streaks. Which should have made it one of my top wood and laminate cleaners, if it wasn’t for one little issue – it didn’t leave as much of a shine as I would have liked.
Like I said, it didn’t dull the surfaces of my floors, it just didn’t give that high-gloss shine that other cleaners gave my floors. This means that while this is a great cleaning product, it isn’t the best one on the market.

I’m familiar with other Sheiner’s cleaning products, particularly their floor cleaners, so I was a bit anxious to get my hands on Sheiner’s Hardwood Floor Cleaner. When I finally did I was expecting a product that could clean laminate and wood floors well. This review is what I discovered.
This is a product that is supposed to be good for not only laminate surfaces but also wood surfaces – including furniture – so I decided to put it through its paces and see if it really could clean all of these surfaces easily and efficiently. I started off with my sealed wood floors and my laminate wood floors first.
Since this product isn’t a concentrate, I used it full-strength on my floors. I noticed that it not only did a good job of cleaning dirt but that it also dried pretty quickly as well. And I also really liked the scent it had. It had sort of a citrus scent that was light and didn’t smell like chemicals. I like that in a cleaner.
Of course, while it did clean the floors well, it didn’t give them the big shine I was expecting. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying it dulled the floors or left streaks because it didn’t. It just didn’t leave as nice of a shine as other floor cleaning products have.
I also test this cleaner out on some of my wood furniture and cabinets and noticed that it did a really good job cleaning these surfaces. It didn’t polish them but it cleaned them well without stripping off their surfaces or staining them. This extends this product’s cleaning potential.
Overall, while this product may not be the best laminate floor cleaner I’ve ever used, it’s still a pretty good one and does a decent job on not only laminates but also on wood and wood surfaces.

Enforcer Professional Strength Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner comes in a gallon bottle and is designed to clean laminate and wood flooring. It’s also supposed to do a good job on crown molding and baseboards as well. Of course, the only real way to know how well it cleans is by putting it to the test and seeing what it can do around my house.
The first thing I noticed about this product is that it is not concentrated so it has to be used on the floor full-strength. Which is exactly how I used it on both my laminate floors and my sealed wood floors. And I have to say, it did a pretty good job cleaning the floor. It had a nice clean scent and removed the dirt from my floors. It also removed a couple of scuff marks that my husband had left on the floors.
All things considered, I think it’s a decent floor cleaner for wood and laminate flooring. However, it isn’t the best I’ve ever used and it doesn’t shine up the floors as well as some other types of cleaners. It also doesn’t dry as quickly as some other cleaners that I’ve used in the past. It’s certainly a decent product but it just didn’t deliver the performance I would’ve liked.

- Dries slowly

Armstrong Hardwood and Laminate Floor Cleaner is a cleaner that I’ve known about for some time but have never gotten around to reviewing it. So I decided to remedy that after I had tried a number of other laminate and hardwood floor cleaners. As soon as I could I ordered a 64-ounce bottle and put it to the test. Here is what I found out about it.
One of the first things I noticed about it was that it had a nice citrus scent and didn’t have a chemical smell like so many other floor cleaners have. The next thing I noticed is that it was concentrated, so I didn’t have to spend time mixing up a batch to use on my floors and that is always a good thing in my book. Of course, it also means that since you can’t dilute it to make it stretch then it’s pretty expensive for a floor cleaner.
The next thing I did was to try it out on my wood floors. Immediately, I noticed how well this product cleaned. I went over the floor and it got up all of the dirt and left a nice streak-free shine. I then used it on my wood laminate and got pretty much the same result.
All in all, I’d have to say that this is a pretty good cleaner. It works well, smells nice and doesn’t streak. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the more expensive floor cleaning products on the market today. And that’s a shame because I really liked this product.

The Bona Stone, Tile & Laminate Floor Care System is not just a floor cleaner but is actually a whole floor cleaning system that comes with a mop with a 4”x15” head, a washable microfiber pad, a dusting pad and a 32-ounce bottle of Bona cleaner. Since this is a system and not just a floor cleaner, I’ve decided to review it as such.
After unpacking everything and getting the mop set-up, I decided to take it out for a little spin. And that is when I ran into my first negative about this product—its mop handle. The handle to this mop feels very flimsy, so I’m not sure how it’s going to hold up over the long term. Sure, the mop itself works great and has a nice low profile that allows me to reach under my cabinets easily, but the handle just doesn’t feel durable at all.
Once I got over the feeling of the handle, however, I think the mop itself did a very good job. The pads are washable and are more than good enough for cleaning wood and laminate flooring. And when you’re done with the pads, you can easily put them in the washer and use them again.
As far as the cleaning solution goes, I thought that it was very good – although it would’ve been nice to have had more than 32-ounces of it. All in all, I think this is a decent system for cleaning laminate and wood flooring, despite some of its flaws.

- Cleans well
- Is a floor care kit
- Easy to use
- Mop handle is kind of flimsy
- Small amount of floor cleaner
Weiman Laminate & Stone Floor Cleaner is a 27-ounce bottle of floor cleaning solution with a trigger on it. It’s a product that’s supposed to be good for not only laminate flooring but for a number of other surfaces as well – from linoleum to ceramic, marble and grouted tile. I wanted to see how well it worked on all of these surfaces, so I got a bottle and tried it out for myself.
One of the first things that caught my attention was that this was a pretty small bottle for the price. It’s only twenty-seven ounces of solution, so it’s not really good for cleaning your whole floor. Mainly, it seemed like it would be good for only spot cleaning, so that’s precisely how I tested it in this review.
I tested it out on some spots on my laminate wood flooring and I think that it did a pretty good job. It got the spot up quickly and efficiently. I also tried it on my linoleum and vinyl floors and noticed that it worked pretty well on those surfaces as well, so I have to give this product points for that. Points I, unfortunately, had to deduct for its performance on my sealed wood floors. When I used it on my wood floors, I felt that it did a decent job but foamed up a little bit like detergent would. And it’s for that reason, I don’t think I’ll be trying this product on my wood floors again.
All things considered, I think this is a decent product but really isn’t practical for any type of heavy-duty cleaning for anything more than spot cleaning. If there were more product for the price, I’d give it a higher score. But as of right now, I simply can’t.

- Cleans well
- Really only good for spot cleaning
- Had kind of a soap residue
