Vinyl Cleaning

Known for its durability.

One of the most durable materials for flooring is vinyl. With the proper care and maintenance, they can last an entire lifetime. This means keeping it clean. And like most surfaces, vinyl floor cleaning has unique challenges that require the right tools and equipment. For the everyday maintenance of the floor, use a simple sponge mop and a bucket of water. Take a vacuum or a broom and get rid of all the dirt and dust, then gently mop the floor using a little bit of water. Instead of spending a lot of money on a lot of chemicals and waxes, try out some vinegar for the dirtier spots on the floor. Vinegar is acidic enough to break down even the most stubborn of stains, and white vinegar in particular is good for disinfecting the floor as well.

Scuffs

Scuffing can come from a lot of different sources: shoes, furniture, kid toys, etc. Whenever you spot a scuff mark, use a non-abrasive cleaner and scrubbing pad immediately so the mark doesn't get in too deep. The important thing is to avoid extremely abrasive chemicals, because they cannot only take the protective layer of film off of the floor, but can cause damage to the vinyl itself. Also avoid using scrubbing tools that are too abrasive, because they will dig into the flooring.

Stains

Dropping wine, juice, or other staining liquids is bound to happen to anyone. If this does happen, you should take care of it immediately. Grab a nylon pad and a non-abrasive detergent and wipe up the liquid immediately. If it is an ink stain, use clear liquor or spirit and a clean cloth and rub on the stain immediately. Then rinse the area with water. The most important thing is that you get to the stain before it seeps into the vinyl.
