Hi there, my name is Juan. I hope that I can be of some assistance to your flooring issue. I've heard that steam cleaning laminate flooring is not recommended because heat and moisture can actually do damage to the flooring that is rarely covered by warranty. The spots may be due to the use of wax solvents. Did you have these floors installed?
Stop using the steamer, that's what is causing your spots. Never use heat + water on laminate. I know it's more hygienic, but it will really tear up the floor. A better option is to use vinegar, alcohol and water, and then dry it really well when you are done. Better yet, use any product that the manufacturer of your floor makes, and just use a slightly damp dust mop every day.
My wife just mixes some liquid soap in warm water to clean the place up. We had the same problem with white splotches but they were from the soap; have you figured out what is causing the splotches? Does rubbing some warm water in make them go away?

And what colour would you like to paint them, if any? Mine are white right now, but I am dreaming about purple wall(s). I know it's bold, but I know I can make it work!
