Before you Start
As you develop a cleaning routine for your new luxury vinyl floor, be sure to reference your warranty & any guidelines provided by your manufacturer. These will lay out the specific requirements for proper care. Below we’ve assembled some basic general tips that apply broadly to most vinyl flooring products.
Your Vinyl Cleaning Routine
Consider the following tips for cleaning luxury vinyl floors:
- Sweep as needed to remove dirt & grit.
- Wipe spills promptly as they occur.
- Mop occasionally using recommended cleaning solutions – ask our team for guidance.
- Note that vinyl floors can become slippery when wet, so use caution when walking after mopping.
What to Avoid
When cleaning vinyl floors, avoid using detergents & soap-based products. These can actually have the opposite of the intended effect, dimming the shine on your floors’ surface.
Most vinyl floors feature a built-in finish that requires no additional care. Avoid buffing, shining or waxing, as these actions can actually harm the finish.
