Luxury vinyl plank flooring from About Floors n More in Jacksonville, FL

How to clean luxury vinyl planks

A luxury vinyl plank (LVP) resists scratches and stains and repels water. Therefore, spills can be cleaned up with a quick swipe of a damp mop or cloth. With proper care, a vinyl floor will maintain a like-new look for years. About Floors n' More is a luxury vinyl flooring retailer that offers a wide assortment of floor coverings along with related services and products. We have a showroom in Jacksonville and Mandarin.

Daily cleaning

It’s a good idea to clean the floor every day to remove dust and debris. It is best to use a dry microfiber mop or a vacuum cleaner on the hard floor setting. When using a mop, it’s most efficient to sweep in an S-pattern, without retracing your strokes. A broom and dustpan can also be used. Small spills or sticky spots are easily cleaned up with a drop of dish detergent and a little warm water on terrycloth. Even though vinyl is waterproof, it’s best to use water sparingly while cleaning.

Cleaning products

Stubborn grime is best removed with a damp microfiber flip mop or a spin mop and cleaning products made for LVP. These cleaners make weekly floor cleaning and periodic deep cleaning easy and efficient. Be sure to rinse the floor using a fresh mop head after you are done cleaning it. A soap buildup can trap dust and dirt and make daily clean-up more difficult. A steam mop should not be used on the floor since it pushes moisture down between the planks. A solution of one part white vinegar to five parts of filtered water will kill germs as well as clean the floor.
