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.
