Luxury Vinyl Cleaning Tips

  • Sweep as needed to remove dirt & grit so it doesn’t get ground down by foot traffic.
  • Wipe spills promptly using a clean, dry cloth.
  • Never wash or mop with excessive water. You may damp mop if you dry promptly.
  • Avoid soaps & detergents, which can dim the shine of your floors.
  • Most vinyl floors come with a built-in finish that never needs additional buffing or waxing.
  • Vinyl floors can become slippery when wet, so be careful when moisture is present.
