- Place non-staining walk-off mats or slip-resistant area rugs at every entryway to your room. This will help prevent dirt and grit from being tracked on to your new floor. Be sure to avoid using rubber-backed mats or rugs as they can damage and potentially discolor your floor. Instead, use mats or rugs made specifically for vinyl floors and remember to treat them accordingly. Shake them off regularly.
- For spots or spills, wipe up immediately and use a clean cloth to wipe a manufacturer recommended cleaner on the floor. Make sure that the product label indicates “self-cleaning,” meaning that you will not get an accumulation of wax on your floor. Rinse the spot or spill area thoroughly and wipe dry with a clean cloth. Avoid using abrasive scrubbing tools as they will leave scratches.
- Never use abrasive cleaners, soaps, paste waxes, or solvents on your vinyl floor.
- If your floor becomes dull looking, first try to clean it with lukewarm water and clear ammonia to see if there’s a film on your floor causing the dullness. (Use the proportions of water to ammonia stated above.) If that doesn’t work, use the manufacturer's recommended floor polish to restore your vinyl floor to its original gloss level.
- If you purchased a PVC vinyl floor, you should consider placing 2-3 coats of the manufacturer’s recommended floor polish on the floor immediately.
- Any vinyl floor with a PVC wear-layer will show scuffs, scratches, and other marks easily. By adding a coat of floor polish you will make the floor easier to maintain.
