We are often asked about the best way to clean luxury vinyl flooring, and we wanted to share some tips about that.
Of course, daily cleaning is simple, usually requiring only a dust broom followed by a damp mop. More in-depth cleaning is needed, occasionally, and there are better ways than others to do that.
Luxury vinyl flooring is easy to care for
One of the selling points of materials such as luxury vinyl tile (LVT) and luxury vinyl plank flooring (LVP) is its ease of maintenance. This is especially the case if you’ve chosen the waterproof version.
A regular, daily cleaning routine will have you sweeping or vacuuming dirt and debris and possibly following up with a damp mop, if necessary, though that isn’t always the case. It would be best if you were deep cleaning these floors about once a week, so here are some dos and don’ts.
- DO use a cleaner that is pH neutral. DON’T use cleaners that contain ammonia or bleach.
- DO use solutions you already have at home, such as diluted dishwashing liquid or shampoo. DON’T use a steam cleaner or excessive amounts of water.
- DO use preventative measures such as runners and area rugs. DON’T use rolling chairs or carts because they could leave deep scratches and marks.
