HOW TO MAINTAIN VINYL FLOORING?

Vinyl floors

Vinyl flooring is one of the better flooring types simply because of its durability and water-resistant. Even cleaning it is fairly easy, but do you know how to maintain them to last a long time?

This article will give you some tips on cleaning vinyl flooring. We’ll make sure your floors are always spotless. Let’s jump in.

 

Prevention

One of the best things you can do to keep your vinyl floor clean is to prevent it from getting dirty. Since most dirt gets in from outside your home, taking measures to keep them out is crucial.

These measures could be something as simple as getting a doormat. Maybe even two, one for the exterior of your home and one for the interior. This will make sure that any loose dirt will get caught on the mats instead of getting tossed about your floor.

It may also be helpful to set some ground rules for the house that will decrease the amount of dirt that gets tracked inside. One way to do this would be to have people take their shoes off at the door when they come in.

 

Routine Cleaning

In some ways, caring for vinyl floors is no different than other types of flooring. Routine maintenance is just one of the ways how they are similar.

Regularly sweeping and vacuuming will stop any sort of buildup, making your life much, much easier. It is important to note that you should do so with the beater bar turned off when you use a vacuum on your vinyl flooring. This is because the beater bar can damage your floors and that’s the last thing you want.

 

Spills

When it comes to spills, you want to act fast. Leaving out any spills will cause them to dry on your flooring. This will stain your floors and can cause damage. If you spill something on your vinyl flooring, be sure to wipe it up quickly with a paper towel.

If you can’t get to it or a spill goes unnoticed, don’t worry, it’s not too late. You just need to make sure that you don’t scrub it out with something abrasive. You should also avoid any kind of soap or detergent as this can leave a gross film on your flooring.

 

Vinyl Floor Cleaner

So, how do you clean your vinyl floors if you can’t use soap, detergent, or really even water? The answer is vinyl floor cleaner.

Vinyl floor cleaner is made specifically to clean vinyl flooring and it won’t damage your floors if used. It is important to find the right type of vinyl floor cleaner though. To find the right kind of cleaner for your floors, look to the manufacturer of your flooring and see which kind of cleaner they recommend for their floors.

 

Expectational Flooring

No matter what your reasons are, everyone deserves to have clean floors. With these tips, you can be sure that your vinyl flooring will always be sparkling.
