Flooring, no matter how new
or beautiful, is meant to be
Vinyl flooring is no exception. Time and the onslaught of foot traffic will most certainly take its toll. But take heart, keeping your vinyl flooring as beautiful and inviting as the day it was installed just requires a little knowledge.
Our vinyl specialists at Carefree Carpets & Floors have put together the following advice to make it easier for you to clean, care for and enjoy your stylish vinyl flooring.
Surefire Cleaning Tips.
Remove dust, sand and grit particles frequently by sweeping or vacuuming your vinyl floor. Don’t use a vacuum with a beater bar, as it may scratch your floor. The attachments that come with your vacuum are useful to clean the edges or to get to hard to reach areas.
For those instances when sweeping or vacuuming does not remove the dirt, mop the floor with clean warm water. Rinse the floor thoroughly with fresh water. If water alone does not clean the surface, use cleaning products recommended by the manufacturer. If you are unable to determine the manufacturer’s recommendations, use one tablespoon of liquid dish washing detergent to one quart of water. Or use one tablespoon of clear ammonia to one quart of lukewarm water. Make sure you rinse the surface to avoid leaving behind a film.
