How to Clean Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Luxury vinyl flooring (also known as LVT or luxury vinyl plank flooring) offers a wide variety of style options while maintaining durability and ease of maintenance. Available in tiles or planks, luxury vinyl flooring can mimic other natural surfaces for a fraction of the cost. It also has been gaining in popularity since it can be installed in places where other flooring types can’t. Luxury vinyl is waterproof and low maintenance, making it an excellent choice for high traffic areas.
Learning how to clean luxury vinyl flooring will save you from future headaches since a good cleaning routine is the best protection for any floor. Here are some tips on how to clean luxury vinyl flooring.
Sweeping or dry mopping your floors regularly helps protect against dirt and debris particles. Even though luxury vinyl is very durable, it can still be scratched, making floors look dull. If you have stains or spills, it’s important to clean them up immediately.
Use an effective floor cleaner to clean the floors with a microfiber mop. This weekly clean helps to remove any buildup not removed by dry mopping alone. Avoid using a traditional mop and bucket since it’s easy to spread excess water on the luxury vinyl flooring. Excess liquids can get into the seams and edges of the floor and destroy the adhesive, making it come loose.
Following this simple daily/weekly routine is all you need to keep luxury vinyl flooring looking its best. Its durable nature lends itself to easy cleaning and peace of mind knowing that your floors will always look great. To further protect floors, use floor mats, felt pads on furniture and be sure to never drag heavy things along your floors.
