Keeping Luxury Vinyl Tile From Scratching

How You Can Keep Luxury Vinyl Tile From Scratching

Here is what you can do to prevent scratches on your luxury vinyl tile.

Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) can be used to amplify the beauty of any room in your house. It’s an alluring flooring option that many homeowners enjoy having. While LVT is known for being a more durable flooring choice, there is still the potential for it to get damaged. No one wants their luxury vinyl tile to get scratched up because it can be a real eyesore. The best way for you to handle scratches is to avoid them altogether. Here is what you can do to prevent scratches on your luxury vinyl tile.

Furniture

It’s easy for furniture to cause damage to your luxury vinyl tile if you aren’t careful. Moving heavy furniture can cause scratches in no time at all. To help with this problem, put plywood over your floor and use it when sliding your furniture across the room. Floor protectors can also be used to keep dents from happening. Just put the protectors under the legs of your furniture to keep the legs from damaging the floor.

Dirt From Door Entrance

Mats do a wonderful job protecting your luxury vinyl tile from scratching, especially when the entrance to your room leads outside. Dirt can be a problem because it’s coarse. It can stick to people’s feet, causing you to scratch up your floor while you walk across it. With mats, you can rub the dirt off your feet before entering the room. Just be cautious and make sure that you’re using the right kind of mat. Mats that have latex backs, and ones made of rubber, are not recommended because they might chemically interact with your LVT. Instead, use mats that have vinyl-back.

Cleaning and Shining Products

Avoid solvent-based polishes when you’re shining your luxury vinyl tile. In addition, don’t use any products that would add wax to your LVT unless the floor already has wax on it. It’s ok to use wax on older flooring. You should also not use soap because it will cause your floor to look duller once you’re finished.
