Many of you ask us for tips or pointers for cleaning your new floor, and we want to make sure that you can enjoy your floor for years to come! Recently, we partnered with Melissa Maker, YouTube star and founder of the website CleanMySpace.com, to create some new floor cleaning videos for hardwood, laminate, and vinyl. The videos turned out great, and you can view them here.
In this post, we’ll look behind the scenes at how these videos came together.

In this post, we’ll show you our three new looks: Global Reclaim laminate flooring, which is part of the Architectural Remnants collection; three new flooring colors in Forestry Mix which is in the Rustics Premium collection; and Millwork Block, which is also in Rustics Premium.
All three brand new products make use of different planks to create a highly varied board look, and have a realistic texture.
