Vinyl Care & Maintenance

Most vinyl is completely waterproof in addition to durable, able to withstand heavy traffic. However, it still needs routine care and maintenance to keep it looking its best! First, establish a preventative care routine that's easy for your entire family to follow. Place all furniture on protective pads to avoid scratching or denting your flooring, and invest in doormats. For daily upkeep, sweep, dust mop, or use a manufacturer-approved vacuum cleaner without a beater bar.

Dealing with spills and stains

Vinyl flooring is waterproof, but you won't want to leave spills and messes sitting for long. Wipe away liquid spills and other common messes with a clean cloth. For tougher messes such as wax or nail polish, you'll want to check with your manufacturer's care guidelines. If using any cleaning products, make sure those are manufacturer-approved as well.
