When it comes to luxury vinyl flooring, you are being provided with an unending level of satisfaction and security as well as a low maintenance lifestyle.
Cleaning vinyl flooring is an easy and quick exercise that does not require a large array of chemicals to maintain. Everybody has a nightmare of various expensive cleaning liquids to scrub out sauces or other substances out of a carpet and resorting to placing furniture or a rug over the embarrassing section to save face.
With vinyl flooring, you have the easiest option in cleaning any amount of pesky stains. A simple dose of warm soapy water, followed by sweeping or mopping, and your floor is back how it was without spending hours getting into the routine scrub.
The first step to cleaning a vinyl floor is to sweep them with a common household non-brittle brush to ensure that no loose debris or grit is present.
From there, fill a bucket with warm water and add 1 cup of white vinegar to it. The acidic mixture will add to the repair of its perfect condition without any damage. It is best to avoid the use of bleaches or alcohol on the floor as they both are known for eroding the design layers on vinyl flooring.
Afterwards, clean the floor with a household mop that is sure to not be wringing wet with water. You want to clean the floor, not soak it – large puddles of water can affect the adhesive if left for too long.
Vinyl planks such as the Karndean click vinyl flooring ranges require cleaning regularly if you are wanting to retain the original out of the box look. If installed in a room that sees heavy amounts of foot traffic it could tend to get dull in appearance without the proper care.
Start with sweeping and vacuuming the planks followed by mopping with a mild cleanser but be sure to keep abrasive cleaning products off the floor due to their tendency to scratch the surface. Ensure that you wash any liquid soap you use with plain clean water and clean up after use no residue can form over time. Too much water from a mop can cause some damage to planks so it is important to remember to rinse thoroughly when using after each dip.
When it comes to vinyl tile it is much easier to maintain with a sweep and vacuum, followed by a mop that will help retain the desired look. Being fully water-resistant is great when mopping but remember that tile can still be affected by large puddles of water, so don’t let those puddles of water be on your surface too long.
The grout between tiles will also require cleaning on occasion. To achieve this safely, use soft-bristled brushes and warm water to be able to get into those spaces and help keep it unphased.
Regular Product use
Most household cleaners can get the job done in maintaining the floor, so there should be no need to purchase expensive speciality products. As noted, vinegar is among the best products to use due to its mixture with warm water being able to cut through grime without the fear of dulling the floor.
Baking soda and water mixed to a paste solution can best remove stains caused by harsher sauces or wines by working it into the area with a toothbrush then sponging with warm water.
Karndean click luxury vinyl tile flooring such as the Da Vinci range will no doubt come with some cleaning guidelines of their own. Be sure to get them from your supplier when purchasing your floor or ask your supplier if you have not had any following the purchase.
