After getting luxury vinyl tile (LVT) installed, you may be wondering what you can do to keep it looking nice in the future. What’s great about LVT is that it’s not much of a hassle to maintain, making cleaning a breeze. Here are some of the spring cleaning tips we have for luxury vinyl tile.
Daily Care For Your Luxury Vinyl Tile
While it is a fairly simple task to keep luxury vinyl tile clean, that doesn’t mean there’s no effort needed. You’ll still need to use a dust mop every day to clean your floor, which helps to remove various pieces of abrasive debris that would otherwise start scratching and wearing down your floor. Sweeping should always be done before you run a wet mop across your floor, and be sure to use either a mop or a soft cloth as necessary.
A pH neutral cleaner is advised because if you use too many harsh detergent cleaners, you could end up with a duller finish. Lastly, if you see spills, deal with them immediately.
Specialty Care For Your Luxury Vinyl Tile
Daily care goes a long way towards preserving your luxury vinyl tile, but eventually, it’s not going to be enough on its own. At some point, you’ll need more TLC to get your floor in the condition you want. We advise you to start with more mild cleaning solutions and only work up to more heavy-duty materials as needed. Some dish soap or vinegar can make your cleaning ability more effective. There are many kinds of messes that could need addressing.
Rubbing alcohol is your tool of choice for ink stains and makeup. Some water and baking soda make the best combination when combatting stubborn food stains. If you have messes with fingernail polish, markers, or crayons, acetone-free polish remover is what you want to use.
No matter which cleaning agent you use, make sure you get rid of any traces of whatever chemicals you used. This keeps your luxury vinyl tile from suffering any more damage. If your LVT has suffered permanent damage that you can’t repair, you can replace the affected pieces of flooring. It helps to have some spare tiles on hand for just such an occasion.
