Caring for your LVT Flooring

Vinyl Flooring Care Guide

How to Maintain

By their very nature, vinyl floors are hardwearing, water, scratch and stain resistant. But following the manufacturers guidelines for maintaining your floor is very important to your floor’s longevity. Speak to a member of our team about your floors recommended maintenance guidelines and specialist maintenance and cleaning products. 


Cleaning LVT floors requires a straightforward cleaning routine. Wiping or vacuuming is sufficient for cleaning your floor, on a daily basis. Removing dust with a broom or vacuum cleaner avoids the build-up of dust and dirt and makes it easier to maintain your floors.

Every week, or more often, if necessary, it’s enough to wipe the floor with a damp mop or a cloth moistened with warm water and a neutral detergent. This helps to remove dirt and keep the floor in top condition. Keep in mind that you don’t need a large amount of water to clean your floor.

Additional cleaning and care tips for maintaining and prolonging the beauty of your vinyl floor

  • Place protective pads (like felt) under heavy furniture, chair and table legs
  • Avoid rubber bottoms on objects resting on your vinyl floor – it may cause staining
  • Use doormats at entrance ways to prevent dirt or dust from being brought inside and make cleaning easier. You can stop about 80% of dirt right there!
  • Clean your floors with natural, soft or neutral detergents 
  • Keep hot items like heaters, ashes or coals at a safe distance/height from your LVT floor

Don't clean vinyl floors with:

  • Abrasive powders
  • Black soap
  • Acetone or solvents
  • Wax or varnish
  • Oil-based products
  • Steam cleaners
