Four tips for maintaining luxury vinyl flooring

Four tips for maintaining luxury vinyl flooring

There are low maintenance requirements for luxury vinyl flooring, which is one of the reasons it is so popular.

Look for a large assortment of trendy luxury vinyl plank and tile styles at Braid Flooring & Window Fashions, a family-owned flooring retailer in Saskatoon, SK.

Protect entryways

Door mats, placed inside and outside entryways, protect vinyl flooring by keeping dirt that's brought into the home to a minimum.

While the surface of a vinyl plank and vinyl tile is tough, dirt and debris can mar it over time. A good cleaning routine keeps your luxury vinyl flooring looking its best, and door mats help assure that this routine is as effortless as possible.

Clean floors every day

The routine will always be manageable if you get into the habit of quickly cleaning your vinyl plank flooring daily.

A vacuum cleaner or house broom works best for removing dirt, and if you have a 'no shoes in the house' rule, a dry microfiber mop is perfect for picking up dust. Be sure to clean up spills right away with a damp cloth or damp sponge, or microfiber mop.

Safeguard against abrasion

Be sure to do all the simple things that protect vinyl tile and vinyl plank flooring, like using furniture floor protectors, taking off stilettos and spike shoes, and trimming pet nails.

Furniture that includes rolling casters should never be used. Minor scratches can be removed with a wax stick designed for filling in scratches on vinyl, wood, and laminate flooring.

Deep clean periodically

Periodic deep cleaning with warm water and a liquid luxury vinyl floor cleaner, which you can find at Braid Flooring & Window Fashions, will prevent grime buildup.

While high-quality luxury vinyl flooring is waterproof, it's still best to use a damp microfiber mop so water does not become trapped beneath the flooring. Rinse-mop the floor with clean water for best results.
