How To Properly Care Your Vinyl Flooring?

As comfortable, robust and flexible as vinyl is, if you want to avoid damage to the floor, you should make sure that furniture is fitted with felt and furniture glides, as they can leave pressure marks on the relatively soft material. Scratches caused by moving chairs, for example, can also be avoided in this way; soft chair casters have proven their worth in the office environment.

There are a few useful tips for cleaning and maintaining vinyl flooring. Initial cleaning in particular is an important measure to seal the floor and to build up an effective defense against dirt deposits. Appropriately labeled care products for polyvinyl chloride are particularly suitable for this - the manufacturer's instructions regarding correct use should be observed. Otherwise, regular cleaning is the be-all and end-all for damage-free, long-lasting flooring. Whether moist or dry, there are different approaches depending on the degree of pollution and personal preferences. It is only important that the floor is also protected during cleaning. For dry cleaning, this means paying attention to soft brooms or special attachments for the vacuum cleaner so that the floor does not scratch. Microfiber cloths are also very effective in gently binding dust. For wet cleaning, lukewarm water or an all-purpose cleaner is sufficient, but strong abrasives and solvent-based cleaners should be expressly warned, as they unnecessarily attack the surface.

Another tip: A lot of water has no positive influence on the cleaning result, on the contrary. Vinyl floors can tend to swell if water remains on the flooring and puddles form. Therefore, cleaning rags and mops should always be wrung out well.
