Tips for caring for your waterproof vinyl flooring

It doesn't take much effort to care for waterproof vinyl flooring, which is one of the reasons many homeowners choose it.

Hessler Floor Covering, in business since 1951, boasts experienced flooring specialists who can answer any questions you may have about luxury vinyl planks and tiles. We have a showroom in Punta Gorda, Fort Myers, and Naples, FL.

Keep dirt out

While the best luxury vinyl flooring has a tough transparent surface layer to protect the wood or tile image from abrasion, dirt and debris can mar this surface over time.

Therefore, placing a doormat inside and outside entryways is a good idea to limit the amount of dirt tracked into your home. A coir or synthetic mat with a natural rubber backing is ideal.

Keep it clean

The job will never be time-consuming if you take the time to sweep waterproof vinyl flooring daily with an indoor broom or vacuum cleaner to remove dust, crumbs, and dirt.

Then, damp mop, as needed, with warm water, a microfiber mop, and a vinyl floor cleaner or mild detergent to remove grime. Be sure to clean up spills and water, so the liquid does not become trapped under the flooring.

Dos and don'ts

Don't use soap-based detergents, 'mop-and-shine' products, bleaches, or wax, and don't 'flood' the floor when you mop.

As for general care, keep your pet's nails trimmed to avoid excessive scratching, and don't drag furniture or heavy electronics across your waterproof flooring. Finally, there is a 'best' way to remove any stubborn stain, and Hessler Floor Covering can always help.
