Cleaning tips for luxury vinyl flooring

Cleaning tips for luxury vinyl flooring

Luxury vinyl flooring is designed to keep scrubbing to a bare minimum. Dirt stays on the surface of the multiple-layer, manufactured floor covering where it is easy to remove. Marchio Floorcovering in Lockport, IL, carries a variety of luxury vinyl plank floor cleaners guaranteed to keep your floors sparkling clean.

Keep dirt out

You can avoid dirt buildup on your LVP floor by placing a certified slip-resistant doormat inside and outside your home. This is especially important since specks of debris may have hard edges, leaving permanent marks on the floor. A coir mat, made from coconut husks, is a good choice since it absorbs moisture and effectively removes dirt and snow.

Cleaning routine

To keep your LVT floors always looking their best, dust mop or vacuum regularly, clean up spills, and damp mop weekly. Follow this routine when dust mopping:

● Mop around the edges of the room to move dust toward the middle.

● Move the mop in an S or infinity pattern to keep all dirt-moving toward you.

● Collect dirt in a pile and sweep it into a dustpan.


Choose a microfiber mop for cleaning, and use it only on your vinyl floors. If you prefer a steam mop, keep in mind that only those specially made for luxury vinyl tile flooring can be safely used on your floors. In addition, the device can be set to half the power to minimize heat exposure and placed on a gentle setting rather than in scrub mode.
