Vinyl Care & Maintenance

Daily Vinyl Care

Modern innovation has truly revolutionized luxury vinyl flooring and you will love how easy it is to maintain them in your home! We recommend using quality indoor-outdoor mats at each entranceway to scrape footwear before entering the home. During the months that receive the most rainfall and winter months that produce constant slush, keep shoe racks by the door and encourage guests to remove footwear. Keep all pet nails trim to reduce scratching the floors and brush your pets to reduce the amount of pet dander that hits the laminate surface. Sweep daily or as frequently as you can with a soft bristle broom or dust-mop to remove dirt and debris effectively!

Treating Spills On Vinyl

With inherent water resistance, your luxury vinyl floors offer incredible protection against stains, household spills, pet accidents, or standing puddles, for true peace of mind. You can simply use paper towels to remove any solid material, starting from the outside of the spill and working in. Then, use warm water with paper towels or a dry, white cloth to wipe the area up and use a gentle cleaner to spot-treat any stains if needed. Loosen dried stains with a soft bristle brush, scrub, and rinse off again. That's all it takes!

Deep Cleaning Vinyl Floors

Vinyl floors are perfect for an active home with kids and pets because these products offer extreme moisture resistance to prevent stains from forming and allow them to quickly be deep cleaned! Luxury vinyl floors are ideal for moisture-prone areas like kitchens, bathrooms, mudrooms, and laundry rooms, allowing you to match flooring throughout the home. You can wet-mop your vinyl floors any time you prefer by following your manufacturer's guidelines and drying the floor with a microfiber cloth afterward.
