Question

What is the proper way to clean a Formica floor? Can an auto scrubber and or buffer be used?


Answer

If the floor is the Formica brand laminate, they recommend only sweeping, mopping, or damp wiping. Avoid using heavy machines. The floor may not hold up to the extra weight and excessive torque, and an aggressive pad or brush can cause scratches that cannot be removed
