What cleaning method is best for luxury vinyl flooring?

Saturday, February 19, 2022 8:12 AM

If you have recently bought brand new luxury vinyl tile or plank, you're sure to have questions. One that we find asked most often relates to cleaning.

What's the best way to clean your new floors? There are several methods, and it's essential to find out which is best for your household.

Start with daily cleaning

The best way to keep your floors tidy is with a broom and damp mop. In most cases, this is all that's necessary.

But a deep clean can mean even more, especially if you have pets or children. LVT has no crevices or cracks for allergens to hide in, but deep cleaning is still necessary from time to time.

Cleaning larger messes

A spill, footprint, or accident can create an eyesore and a potential stain. That's why it's crucial to choose the proper commercial cleanser when necessary.

It's always best to follow your manufacturer's recommendations for the perfect cleaner. And you can always feel free to give us a call for advice.

Stay clear of steam cleaning

We are often asked if it's okay to steam clean your luxury vinyl plank and tile, and the answer is no. While the flooring is 100% waterproof, high temperatures are not the best choice.

Instead of steam cleaning, feel free to contact us to set up a cleaning appointment. We'll make sure you get the best results for any size project.
