Luxury vinyl flooring FAQs about cleaning

There's not much work involved with maintaining a like-new look when you have luxury vinyl flooring in your home. This durable floor covering is also popular because it resists scratches and stains and wears well during its long lifespan.

1 Stop Interiors in Bellingham, WA, offers a wide variety of top-quality tile and vinyl plank flooring, including waterproof brands. Read below to learn more about keeping your luxury vinyl flooring clean. 

Long-lasting surface


When you opt for a superior luxury vinyl brand, the image layer is well protected by a thick transparent surface layer or wear layer.

While this upper layer resists abrasion, dirt and debris can mar the surface over time. Therefore, it's wise to sweep or vacuum the floor regularly and use doormats inside and outside entryways.

Deep cleaning


Mopping with warm water and liquid vinyl floor cleaner effectively removes grime. However, even if the core layer beneath the wear layer repels water, you'll want to minimize the water you use when cleaning. For example, use a microfiber mop on your luxury vinyl flooring rather than a string mop so excess water does not seep through the floor to the subfloor.

Cleaning supplies


Since steam mops produce intense heat and drive moisture down between the planks and tiles, they should never be used on luxury vinyl flooring.

In addition, scrub brushes and harsh cleaners should not be used on a luxury vinyl plank or tile floor because they could damage the wear layer. Instead, clean often and wipe up spills immediately; scrubbing will never be necessary.
