Caring for Vinyl Flooring

When it comes to caring for luxury vinyl flooring, one of the best things about your new flooring is that by and large, it will care for itself, giving you years of stunning floors to come without the constant upkeep flooring such as hardwood floors require. However, there are one or two things you can do to make sure your vinyl floor continues to look as good as the day you bought it well into the future.

Maintaining Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl floor planks are known for being exceptionally hard-wearing. However, there are one or two things you can do to extend their life even more. As with any type of floor, even luxury vinyl plank flooring can get scratched or dented.

To prevent this, try adding pads under the legs of heavy pieces of furniture such as a dining table or dresser to cushion them against the floor. Regular hoovering or brushing with a soft brush can also help reduce any buildup of dust or substances on the vinyl flooring that could cause scratches to the surface.

How to Clean Vinyl Flooring

Water-resistant and low-maintenance, luxury vinyl flooring is quick and simple when it comes to cleaning vinyl flooring. The most important thing to remember is that you should never use an abrasive scourer when cleaning your vinyl flooring, this can damage the surface of the vinyl plank and affect the look and feel of your vinyl flooring. Instead, warm water and a light soap will be more than enough to clean your vinyl flooring in most cases. Alternatively, special vinyl floor cleaner is available from a number of shops and will ensure a thorough clean of your luxury vinyl flooring without any damage to the surface.

Everyday Luxury Vinyl Flooring Care

When it comes to taking care of your vinyl flooring, you’ll be glad to know that constant upkeep isn’t a necessity.
