Preventing Damage

The main purpose of cleaning and maintaining your luxury vinyl flooring is to do whatever you can to prevent damage and keep them looking new for as long as possible. There are a few tips you can take into consideration to prevent damage. Not only should spills be immediately cleaned up, but be sure to always wash your floors with non-abrasive floor cleaners. These cleaners keep your floors clean without wearing away at their beautiful coating.

Gently Move Furniture

As you’re cleaning your vinyl floors, be sure to always lift and carry your furniture when moving it out of the way. It’s important to clean under your furniture in order to avoid certain spots becoming dull and dirty, but you never want to drag your couch or loveseat across vinyl floors. Find someone to help you lift the heavier objects so that you can effectively clean underneath and around your furniture. 

Extra Protection

If you have high-traffic areas of your home (and most of us do), it’s a great idea to lay down extra protection in the form of floor mats where you want to protect your luxury vinyl floors. By placing these mats at entrances and exits, you can help collect dirt, sand, oil, or other corrosive substances that may cause damage to your floors. 

Spot Stain Treatment

Spot stains can be tricky to remove no matter what type of flooring you may have. When it comes to your vinyl flooring, be sure to use a very diluted bleach solution when cleaning these stains. 1 part bleach to 10 parts water should do the trick, but always test a small corner of the floors to ensure that it doesn’t cause any damage before you tackle the stain.
