Here is a video instruction on how to clean and apply finish on imitation wood floor.

Once you lay finish on the laminated wood floor, unless it is really necessary, do not use strip and wax floor. Use top scrub and refinishing method.

Instead of using regular finish, try water based wood floor finish. It is more durable and lasts longer on laminated wood floor. If the floor is made of rubber type material, you can use regular floor finish.
