Since we are the subject of floor cleaning ...
My husband Pergo(ed) every room in our home except the bathroom and bedroom which have tile and carpet.
I hate it. The Pergo I mean. It is "real" Pergo if that makes a difference and it is the nail down kind.
It looks fantastic compared to other laminate floor installations I have seen but it is not my choice for flooring.
"But you can pick out the color honey".
Oh please! Two words: Pergo casket
It mostly looks like a wood floor.
I wanted a wood floor.
Same with that big deck he built.
He wanted Trex and I wanted cedar.
Eventually we had to flip a coin - seriously.
He won the Pergo which I have to see everyday and I won the cedar which I see only occasionally but does not look like play school furniture.
I know most do not but it was the principle of the thing.
I like wood. Oak is my favorite, cedar being number 2.
Pine I am not fond of but makes a nice desk if stained properly as well as for clear moldings.
Any how, I have to vacuum daily sometimes twice since we have four pugs.
But for washing I am at a loss.
I have tried several of the recommended laminate floor cleaners from various companies as exactly as described and get streaks.
I even wash with the grain and I still get streaks.
Vinegar and water = streaks.
Some of them are seriously expensive for weekly cleaning.
The streaks are very
noticeable since the house has a great deal of natural light.
I have used a Shark Steam Cleaner and it works great! No streaks and no chemicals.
One of my pugs is allergic to many things but water she is not.
I am sure I am not supposed to be steaming a Pergo floor though it does dry almost immediately it is still steam.
Did I mention it works great?
I have also used the Swifter Wet Jet but sparingly. It leaves the least streaks out of all the cleaners.
Can someone recommend something?
I will buy a small bottle and see how it works.--
