Your waterproof luxury vinyl flooring is not only beautiful, but it is also exceptionally durable and waterproof. As far as cleaning goes, nothing beats the ease of luxury vinyl flooring. It only takes a few simple maintenance steps to keep your flooring looking great for years to come. When cleaning luxury vinyl flooring, use a broom to remove loose dirt. Damp-mop as needed with clean water and a nonabrasive floor cleaner. Never use vinegar, acetone, or lacquer thinner to clean these floors. Harsh cleaning chemicals should not be used on luxury vinyl flooring. Spills should be cleaned up immediately. Floors should never be flooded with water or be allowed to have standing water. A proper environment must be maintained, the temperature should not exceed 85 degrees F, the lower the humidity the better.
Place mats outside all entrances and exits and make sure to clean them on a regular basis. They will absorb soil and moisture and trap excessive dirt and grit. Do not use mats with rubber backing, as they can discolor the flooring.
Ensure all furniture legs have felt pads under them to protect your flooring. Any appliance or piece of furniture that is heavy and rarely moved should have flat furniture cups that are non-staining and the appropriate size. Mobile appliances should have large casters that swivel easily.
Keep window coverings closed during the day when there is heavy direct sunlight. Luxury vinyl floors can fade or get discolored if overexposed to the sun.
Avoid wearing stiletto-style heels, cleats, or spiked golf shoes on your flooring. They may cause scratches and indentations.
