Routine Luxury Vinyl Care

Routine care and maintenance are essential for preserving the beauty and longevity of your luxury vinyl flooring. Start by regularly sweeping to remove loose dirt and debris that can scratch the surface. For a deeper clean, damp mop using a manufacturer-recommended vinyl floor cleaner diluted in water. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as these can damage the finish of your flooring. Place protective pads or coasters under furniture legs to prevent scratching, and use doormats at entryways to minimize the amount of dirt and grit brought indoors.

Luxury Vinyl Spills & Stains

No matter how careful you are, spills are inevitable. Acting quickly to address spills can prevent them from causing lasting damage to your vinyl flooring.

Begin by blotting the affected area with a clean cloth or paper towel to absorb as much liquid as possible. Avoid rubbing the spill, as this can spread it further and potentially cause damage to the flooring. Once the excess liquid has been absorbed, clean the area with a vinyl floor cleaner recommended by the manufacturer, following the instructions provided.

Scrape up any material, taking care not to scratch the surface. Next, use a damp cloth to remove any residue left after removing the solid spill. Avoid using abrasive materials or harsh chemicals, as these can damage the surface of the flooring.

Refer to the manufacturer's guidelines for specific cleaning instructions to avoid damaging your floors or voiding your warranty. Identify the type of stain and choose an appropriate vinyl floor stain remover for effective cleaning. Always test the cleaning product in a small, inconspicuous area first to ensure it won't cause discoloration or damage to your flooring.
