How to Clean Vinyl Plank Flooring

Your flooring, like everything else in your home, requires regular maintenance and care. The cleaning process for vinyl flooring is simple and easy to do. Below, you will find a brief outline of how to clean your floors.

Regular Sweeping or Vacuuming: Sweep and/or vacuum your floors regularly to remove loose dirt and debris. This will protect it from scratches and keep it looking its best.

Damp Mopping: For routine cleaning, use a damp mop with a mild cleaner specifically formulated for vinyl floors. Avoid using harsh chemicals, abrasive cleaners, and soaking your mop too much. The harsh chemical and abrasive cleaners can damage the floor’s surface and protective coating. Make sure that the mop is only damp because too much moisture can cause the flooring to become damaged.

Prompt Spill Cleanup: When something spills on your floors, clean it up immediately. Allowing it to sit on the surface of your flooring can lead to staining and other damage. It is recommended that you use a soft cloth or paper towel to blot the spill, and then clean up the spill more thoroughly later with a mild cleaner.

Avoid Scratches: People can often unknowingly scratch their vinyl floors in numerous ways such as moving furniture or dragging heavy objects across the floor. Take precautionary measures to avoid scratching your floors by doing things like installing felt pads on the bottom of your furniture.

Protect from Direct Sunlight: Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight can cause fading or discoloration of vinyl plank flooring. Use curtains, blinds, or UV-protective window films to minimize the impact of sunlight on your floors.

By following these simple cleaning and maintenance practices, you can keep your vinyl plank flooring looking beautiful and extend its lifespan.
