Even if you don’t have a lot of spare time, there are some quick and easy tasks you can perform regularly to protect the look and longevity of your laminate floors. Simple preventative maintenance will go a long way to keep your laminate looking as good as new for years to come.
Encourage the removal of outdoor shoes before walking across the floor so dirt isn’t tracked into the house. Cover the entrance areas with mats to avoid dirt and other tracking.
Vacuum and sweep regularly. If vacuuming, avoid using a vacuum with a beater bar. This could scratch your vinyl.
No matter how careful you are or how much you stick to your maintenance routine, life happens. Your luxury vinyl will still likely experience the occasional spill or mess, especially if you have kids or pets.
Spills and messes happen so it’s important to know how to clean these inevitabilities. Common household messes like spills and soil should wipe or sweep away clean.
Wipe up spills as soon as possible, and use non-abrasive cleaners to avoid surface scratches.
