Laminate is a popular floor product because it is affordable, durable and easy to install.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Clean the stained area with a vacuum to remove all dirt that could scratch the surface of the laminate floors when you are cleaning.

  2. 2

    Apply a cleaner with acetone, such as nail polish remover, to a cloth. If the paint stain is from a latex paint, you can spray a latex paint cleaner on the stain (see Resources). Latex paint is easier to remove than other types of paint.

  3. 3

    Apply the stain cleaner on the stain and let it set for one to two minutes.

  4. 4

    Wipe up the stain and cleaner using a cloth and warm water. You may need to apply pressure to lift the stain. If the stain is not removed, repeat the process.
