Three tips for cleaning luxury vinyl flooring

Three tips for cleaning luxury vinyl flooring

Luxury vinyl tile and plank are excellent materials for every room in your home. But once it's in place in your home, you may have questions about cleaning them.

We can help you clean these surfaces, even in your busiest spaces. Here are three tips that can help your floors look and perform as they should for years to come.

1. Sweep and mop regularly

Your in-house traffic will determine your maintenance schedule. For example, most homeowners need to sweep daily to remove dirt and debris.

LVP sweeping and mopping is followed up with a damp mop and warm water. But a recommended cleaning solution is reasonable too.

2. Refrain from steam cleaners and abrasive tools and solutions

You might hear that steam cleaners are an option for cleaning these materials. But the truth is that this could void your warranty and cause irreparable damage to your floors.

The same is true for using abrasive cleaners and tools. Use only those cleaners and tools recommended by your floor's manufacturer.

3. Use runners and area rugs if necessary

Using carpet runners, area rugs, and mats for your LVP flooring can reduce signs of wear and damage. These products keep traffic and wear off the surface of your floors.

They can also trap and hold dirt and debris, making cleaning your floors easier. And since you can remove the rugs as necessary, it's an easy task in any room.
