Daily Vinyl Care

Vinyl flooring is easy to maintain on a daily basis. Follow our care guide below to learn all of the top tips and best practices for maintaining your vinyl floors.

Like other hard surface flooring options, sweeping is the best way to keep your vinyl floors looking great day in and day out. When you sweep, you are working to remove dirt, dust, and other debris that can scratch, scrape, or otherwise harm your vinyl floors. Said debris can also lead to premature aging if left unattended. How often you sweep will depend on the traffic that the vinyl floors receive, but you should plan on doing so every few days at a minimum.

For a deeper cleaner, you can damp-mop your vinyl floors. Ensure that your mop is damp as opposed to soaking wet. Just because vinyl is a "waterproof flooring," that doesn't mean that damage from too much water can't occur.

Solid Messes

For solid messes, grab your broom and sweep them up in a timely manner to avoid long-term damage. As previously mentioned, dirt and other debris can scratch your vinyl floors and lead to premature aging if not attended to. Address all messes, both solid and liquid, immediately after they take place to ensure no damage occurs. 

Liquid Spills

With laminate and most other hard surface flooring options, spills should not cause damage if you act fast. When a liquid accident takes place, grab a cloth and wipe up the mess right away. The longer you wait, the higher the possibility of some lingering effects. When in doubt, consult your manufacturer on how to care for a specific liquid spill.
