How to Maintain That "Like New" Look For Your Luxury Vinyl Tile

Here is what to do to keep luxury vinyl tile looking brand new.

Luxury vinyl tile is one of the most quickly growing types of flooring in the country as of now. We see LVT getting installed in all kinds of buildings, ranging from condos to apartments to houses and more! By going with modern luxury vinyl tile, you get many advantages that you otherwise wouldn’t get with other floors, such as the ease of installation, water-resistant properties, durability, longevity, and low-maintenance requirements. On the topic of maintenance, it will be integral to keeping your LVT looking like new. Here is what to do to keep luxury vinyl tile looking brand new.

Protection For Your Luxury Vinyl Tile

Preventing damage to your floor is one of the biggest steps you can take to preserve its longevity and amazing appearance. There is an abundance of prevention measures available. First off, doormats are great at keeping dirt from reaching your tile. Place them at all entrances to your house so that outside dirt doesn’t find its way onto your floors later.

Some dirt will inevitably find its way onto your floor, though. It’s to be expected at some point. When this happens, using a broom with soft bristles is preferred for sweeping up pesky pieces of dirt. If you spill something on your floor, get the spill cleaned as soon as possible. The longer you wait to handle spills, the worse it is for your floor.

Don’t use abrasive cleaners because they have a tendency to get your floor scratched. In addition, furniture can also scratch your luxury vinyl tile if you drag it across the floor. That’s why, when moving furniture, protector feet are helpful. For smaller items, you can just lift them up to keep your floor protected.

Cleaning and Maintaining Luxury Vinyl Tile

What’s handy about luxury vinyl tile is how easy it is to clean and maintain. You won’t be needing a lot of elbow grease to get the job done most of the time. In many situations, you will only need a broom, some mild cleanser, and the occasional damp mop.

Some floors are made out of wood, which can make them more vulnerable to moisture damage. Luxury vinyl tile, in contrast, is made from plastic, making it more resilient against moisture. This way, you won’t have to worry about the floor becoming warped or discolored. Luxury vinyl tile also has the ability to look like other types of flooring, so you don’t have to sacrifice appearance to get high-quality material.
