Daily Care And Maintenance
Today's vinyl flooring is completely waterproof, making it ideal for bathrooms and kitchens. And it's also easy to clean. However, you should still be aware of proper care and maintenance to prolong the functionality of your vinyl flooring for many years to come.
You should start by placing heavy furniture on protective mats. You should also use doormats to trap dirt before it gets all over your flooring. For routine care, you should regularly sweep, dry mop, and vacuum your flooring using a manufacturer-approved vacuum cleaner without a beater bar.
Dealing With Spills And Stains
You'll encounter the occasional mess on your vinyl flooring, no matter how careful you are. Fortunately, most messes are simple to clean. For common household spills, simply wipe them away with a cloth. For tougher messes like wax, nail polish, or gum, you'll want to refer to your manufacturer's cleaning guidelines.
If your flooring needs more than just a dry surface clean, use a manufacturer-approved cleaning solution and follow their guidelines. For most approved cleaning solutions, you just need to spray and wipe dry without any unnecessary rinsing or washing.
