Laminate Treatments


Hey guys just installed a new Laminate floor and it got wet when I was cleaning the couch. It swelled up like crazy but thankfuly went back down almost to normal. So now I really want to seal it to protect it from any moisture. Could I use a floor wax? It's flexible enough to move with the laminate I think and it won't soak into the v groves to cause more damage I hope.

Thanx John

No. If you wax it you are asking for a nightmare. I've seen a few people try wax before. The best way to do this would have been to glue the joints during installation. There isn't a great deal you can do at this point. There are laminate refinishing systems out there that some people have had great luck with though I can't speak from personal experience. Laminates one big weakness is water. Not much you can do will change that.
