Vinyl Care & Maintenance

Today’s luxury vinyl tile (LVT) flooring is both affordable and beautiful, and quickly becoming one of the favorite flooring solutions among our customers.

Many luxury vinyl floors are also 100% waterproof, so they’re great for bathrooms, dens, and kitchens. However, even though many vinyl products include water-resistant technology built into the surface of each plank and tile, it’s still important to wipe away water spills as quickly as possible.

When it comes to care and maintenance tips for your new luxury vinyl tiles and planks, we consulted with the experts here at Pucher’s to put together the following guide!

 

Everyday LVT Care and Maintenance

Frequent care and maintenance of your luxury vinyl tiles and planks can be quickly built into your overall home cleaning routine, so it won’t feel like a chore!

  • For daily upkeep, simply sweep, dust mop or use a manufacturer-approved vacuum cleaner (one without a beater bar).
  • Place all heavy furniture on protective mats to avoid any scratches.
  • You can also place entry or doormats at the entrance to each room to avoid tracking outdoor dirt and soil across your flooring.

 

Luxury Vinyl Cleaning Solutions

If your flooring needs more than just a dry surface clean, use a manufacturer-approved cleaning solution and follow the instructions on the bottle. For most approved cleaning solutions, you just need to spray and wipe dry without any unnecessary rinsing or washing.

 

Luxury Vinyl Stain Removal

For common household spills, wipe with a micro-cloth. Once your floors are dry, follow up with a manufacturer-approved hard surface floor cleaner to keep your floors looking like new! When it comes to those tougher household messes like wax, gum, or nail polish, make sure you’re first consulting with your manufacturer’s guidelines for approved stain removal instructions.  For any other questions, you can always call our representatives during store hours. We’re happy to help!
