Daily care & maintenance

For daily upkeep of vinyl flooring, you should sweep, dust mop, or use a manufacturer-approved vacuum cleaner without a beater bar. Preventative placement of all heavy furniture on protective mats or pads will help you avoid scratching your flooring. Place doormats throughout your home so you and your guests can avoid tracking outdoor dirt and soil across your floors.

Dealing with spills

Vinyl flooring is waterproof, but you don't want to leave spills and messes sitting for long as it can lead to warping. Wipe away liquid spills and other common messes with a clean cloth. Proper cleaning instructions for tougher messes such as wax or nail polish may be found in your manufacturer's care guidelines. If using any cleaning products, make sure those are manufacturer-approved as well.
