LVP /LVT Floor Care

Use Walk-off mats- Whenever possible place a non-staining doormat outside each entrance to your home to prevent dirt, sand, grit, and other substances such as oil, asphalt, and driveway sealer from being tracked onto your floor.  

Sweep your Luxury Vinyl floor regularly (at least once a week).

Support furniture- Replace all narrow furniture rests with wide-bearing ones. Support furniture with wide-bearing, non-staining floor protectors.
It is recommended that all furniture protectors be at least one inch in diameter, made of non-pigmented, hard plastic, and rest flat on the floor.
Non-staining felt protectors are also acceptable. Casters with a minimum 3/4" flat surface width or floor protectors are recommended for all moveable furniture.
Metal floor protectors are generally not recommended.

Use Runways- Always use strips of 1/4" plywood or sheets of underlayment as runways to protect the floor if you need to move heavy objects, such as your refrigerator, across your Luxury Vinyl floor. Runways should always be used even with furniture dollies, or even if the heavy objects are equipped with wheels or rollers.

Wipe up spills immediately to help prevent stains. The longer a stain sits the tougher it can be to remove from the surface.

Cleaning Tips- To prevent dirt build up occasionally mop your floor with the manufacturer's recommended floor cleaner.
* Follow the instructions on the bottle and do not over mix or your cleaning solution may leave a dulling film.
* Avoid soaps, cleaning powders and detergent products as they will leave a dulling film.
* Although the no-rinse cleaners do not need rinsing, rinsing will provide the better shine.
* If you do notice a dulling film after cleaning the floor, try a thorough rinse with warm, clean water.
