Ways You Should and Shouldn’t Care For Luxury Vinyl Tile

Ways You Should and Shouldn't Care For Luxury Vinyl Tile

Proper care is needed to get the most enjoyment and longevity from your luxury vinyl tile, but there are right and wrong ways to care for your flooring.

Luxury vinyl tile is a type of flooring that works with everything from patios to kitchens to bathrooms and more. People enjoy the durability of these floors, but while they are quite sturdy, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take care of them. Proper care is still needed to get the most enjoyment and longevity from your luxury vinyl tile, but there are right and wrong ways to care for your flooring. Here are the things you should do when caring for your luxury vinyl tile and things that you should avoid doing.

Vacuum Regularly

Your luxury vinyl tile is going to get dirty, and when it does, you should take a moment to tidy up. Vacuuming regularly will ensure that your floor remains in great condition all throughout the day. It keeps dirt and other kinds of debris from piling up and making your floor look unsightly. You should also vacuum other flooring materials, such as your carpets and doormats, while you’re at it.

Don’t Use Stain Removers That Aren’t Appropriate for Luxury Vinyl Tile

There are many cleaning agents people use to clean their floors. However, for luxury vinyl tile, not all cleaning solutions are safe to use on them. When cleaning and removing stains from your luxury vinyl tile, make sure that the products you use are confirmed to be safe on these floors.

Rinse Luxury Vinyl Tile With Clean Water After Cleaning is Done

Once you’re finished getting your floor clean, take a moment to rinse the area using clean water. A damp cloth or dry mop will be your best tool for this job, and once cleaning is done, you should allow sufficient time for your floor to dry. This way, people who walk on the floor won’t be at risk of slipping.

Don’t Drench Your Floor While Cleaning It

Cleaning is definitely important for your floor, but you shouldn’t soak the area. There is a difference between washing the area and completely soaking it. You shouldn’t soak your floor because, as we mentioned before, you don’t want people to risk slipping and injuring themselves.
