Care and Maintenance

Frequent care and maintenance of your luxury vinyl tile and plank can be quickly built into your overall home cleaning routine!

  • For daily upkeep, sweep, dust mop or use a manufacturer-approved vacuum cleaner without a beater bar.
  • Place all heavy furniture on protective mats to avoid any scratches and place entry or doormats at the entrance to the room to avoid tracking outdoor dirt and soil across your flooring.

If your flooring needs more than just a dry surface clean, use a manufacturer approved cleaning solution and follow their guidelines. For most approved cleaning solutions, just spray and wipe dry - rinsing or washing is typically unnecessary.

When it comes to those common household spills, wipe away with a micro-cloth and allow to dry, then follow up with a manufacturer-approved hard surface floor cleaner to keep your floors looking great! For tougher household messes like wax, gum, or nail polish, consult with your manufacturer guidelines for approved stain removal tips.
