Maintaining your luxury vinyl flooring

Maintaining luxury vinyl floors is relatively simple and straightforward, but it's essential to follow the appropriate care routine to keep them looking great for years to come. Here are some tips for maintaining your luxury vinyl floors:


  1. Regular Cleaning: Sweep, vacuum, or dust mop your floors regularly to remove dirt, dust, and debris. This prevents scratches and keeps the floors looking clean.
  2. Damp Mopping: For a deeper clean, damp mop the floors with a mild cleaning solution. Avoid using abrasive cleaners or harsh chemicals, as they can damage the finish of the vinyl. Instead, use a manufacturer-recommended cleaner or a solution of water and a small amount of gentle dish soap.
  3. Spot Cleaning: Immediately clean up spills and stains to prevent them from becoming permanent. Use a damp cloth or mop to wipe up spills, and spot-clean any stubborn stains with a vinyl floor cleaner or a mixture of water and mild detergent.
  4. Avoid Excess Water: While luxury vinyl floors are water-resistant, excessive moisture can still damage them over time. When mopping, make sure your mop is only damp, not soaking wet. Wipe up any excess water immediately to prevent it from seeping into the seams or edges of the flooring.
  5. Protective Measures: Place doormats at entryways to trap dirt and moisture before it reaches your floors. Use felt pads or furniture glides under heavy furniture to prevent scratches and indentations.
  6. Avoid Abrasive Tools: Avoid using abrasive scrub brushes or scouring pads, as they can scratch the surface of the vinyl. Instead, use a soft-bristled brush or non-abrasive cleaning tools.
  7. Regular Maintenance: Periodically check the condition of your floors for any signs of wear or damage. Repair any scratches, gouges, or tears promptly to prevent further deterioration.
  8. Use Rugs: Place area rugs or mats in high-traffic areas and under furniture to provide additional protection for your floors.
  9. Avoid Rubber Backed Rugs or Mats: Rubber-backed rugs or mats can trap moisture and cause discoloration or damage to vinyl floors. Opt for rugs or mats with a non-slip backing instead.
  10. Follow Manufacturer's Instructions: Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations for cleaning and maintenance to ensure the longevity of your luxury vinyl floors.
