Vinyl Care and Maintenance:


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
