Clean and shine laminate flooring where my dog has decided to urinate several times? The floor was brand new when we moved into our apartment and now after a year and half, it has lost its appeal from the dog and foot traffic.

  • Sprinkle with baking soda and use a soft-bristled brush or toothbrush to clean any hardened mess in the space between planks. Do not scrub the area — you don't want to rub off the protective coating. Let that sit for a few minutes to soak up any possible moisture.

  • An enzymatic cleaner is what seems to work best for us. This should keep them from using the same spot again as well.

    That's why I don't like laminate flooring. Its cheap and doesn't hold up to everyday traffic. If anything drops on it it nicks the flooring, you cant have a leak/flood otherwise floors are ruined, pet stains warp the laminate. Terrible product. I was happy when I had a foundation leak from heavy rains and all the flooring was warped and ruined as a result. I went with tile and its the best decision ive made.
