Caring For Your Waterproof Plank and Vinyl Floors
Vinyl and waterproof floors only need basic maintenance to keep them looking new.
Remove Dirt Daily
Sweep, vacuum, or dust mop daily to remove loose dirt or grit from the surface. Use only a soft bristle broom or vacuum without the beater bar. For dust mopping, use only an untreated electrostatic dust mop, such as Swiffer. This will help prevent wear and scratches on the finish.
Use Non-Abrasive Cleaner When Mopping
When further cleaning is needed, use a mop with warm water and a gentle cleaner. Ensure that area is rinsed clean, as some cleaners can leave a residue.
Quickly Remove Spills
Blot up liquids immediately with a clean dry cloth. To prevent stains, do not allow spills to remain on the floor for an extended period of time.
Use protectors under furniture
Add felt floor protectors on the legs or corners of furniture, heavy objects or equipment to prevent scratching or denting. This is especially needed for chairs or stools that are moved around a lot.
Use floor mats or rugs near entrances
Mats act as a barrier between the floor and the dirt and moisture you are tracking in from outside. These should be cleaned or dried out often to continue trapping dirt from shoes..
