Our experts have put together this guide full to tips to help you care for your new LVT & LVP floors.

Proper Vinyl Floors Cleaning & Care

Many of today’s resilient (vinyl) flooring are 100% waterproof, making them a great flooring choice for bathrooms, dens, and kitchens. While many manufacturers offer water resistant technology built into the plank and tile finish, it is still important to wipe away water spills as quickly as possible.

Frequent care and maintenance of your luxury vinyl tiles and planks can be quickly built into your overall home cleaning routine!

  • For daily upkeep, sweep, dust mop or use a manufacturer approved vacuum cleaner without a beater bar.
  • Place all heavy furniture on protective mats to avoid any scratches and place entry or doormats at the entrance to the room to avoid tracking outdoor dirt and soil across your flooring.

If your flooring needs more than just a dry surface clean, use a manufacturer approved cleaning solution and follow their guidelines. For most approved cleaning solutions, you just need to spray and wipe dry without any unnecessary rinsing or washing.

When it comes to those common household spills, wipe away with a micro-cloth and once dry, follow up with a manufacturer approved hard surface floor cleaner to keep your floors looking great! For tougher household messes like wax, gum, or nail polish, consult with your manufacturer guidelines for approved stain removal tips.
