Cleaning & Caring For Vinyl Planks


Keep your Vinyl floors looking their best with these cleaning tips:


  • To keep your vinyl planks looking new, use a broom, vacuum or microfiber sweeper for a quick clean up. For deeper cleans, a damp mop and mild cleaner get the job done. As a bonus, there’s no waxing required! Plus, vinyl plank flooring has a protective wear layer on it that allows it to maintain its luster for years to come.


  • Use floor protectors or felt covers on chair legs, sofas, TV stands, tables and other easily moveable furniture so you don't scratch the floors.


  • Replace plastic casters on chairs with rubber wheels.


  • Lift, don't slide, heavy objects across floors.


  • Use protective mats; It is important to use a good quality entry mat to trap dirt, sand and other substances such as oil that would otherwise be tracked onto your floor. These mats will also help protect your flooring from premature wear. Mats are also suggested at heavy pivot locations, such as in front of your kitchen sink or stove. If mats are placed directly on top of the resilient floors, use mats without latex or rubber backings to avoid possible discoloration.


  • PLEASE NOTE: Never use aggressive cleaning agents, soap or abrasive cleaners or cleaners containing oil or waxes.
