How to take care of your vinyl flooring
Vinyl provides an attractive look at an affordable price. Vinyl is also easier to care for than most people think. When you wash it, for example, simply use a non-rinsing cleaner that leaves no film. Most products sold as vinyl cleaners fit the bill.
Simple tips to keep your vinyl flooring looking new
- Use felt pads on chair and table legs, and other furniture, to avoid scratching the floor.
- Avoid putting rubber-backed rugs on vinyl flooring – the rubber can stain the floor.
- Put a heavy-duty doormat at your front door and encourage visitors to wipe their feet. This is especially true if you have an asphalt driveway; the chemicals in asphalt can cause vinyl flooring to turn yellow.
- Remove stains as soon as possible with an appropriate no rinse floor cleaner and wipe the area with a damp cloth to remove any residue.
