Cleaning and maintenance are essential

Whenever we think about cleaning and maintenance, we can all agree that cleaning is essential in keeping our floors looking new longer, not to mention reflecting pride in our homes, and, of course, contributing to our quality of life.

Brands we carry: Armstrong, Aqua Mix, Bona, Congoleum, Capture, Mannington, Mohawk, Sure Seal, and Tec.


Carpet Cleaners

Counter Top Cleaners

Almost all counter tops can use your basic store bought cleaners. Make sure you are not using an abrasive cleaner as these will scratch the surface. However you need to be very careful with Granite Countertops.


Granite countertops

To clean granite countertops, we recommend using Custom Building Products “Stone Specific Polished Granite Cleaner & Resealer” which we stock.

To seal granite countertops we recommend using Miracle Sealants Company “511 Impregnator”. Please note: This product requires the area to be ventilated during and after use.


Laminate Wood Cleaners

All Laminate wood warranties require you to use only their cleaners when cleaning your laminate floor. This is because some cleanings have chemicals that will breakdown the water proofing barrier which over time will cause your flooring to peak at the seams when the water penetrates the surface. It’s also important to use as little water as possible so you do not saturate the floor. We carry the following cleaners.

  • Armstrong Hardwood & Laminate Cleaning System*
  • Armstrong Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner*
