Luxury Vinyl Care and Maintenance

Frequent care and maintenance of your luxury vinyl tiles and planks can be quickly built into your overall home cleaning routine, so it won’t feel like such a chore!

  • For daily upkeep, we recommend sweeping, dust mopping, or vacuum with a manufacturer-approved vacuum cleaner without a beater bar.
  • Place all heavy furniture on protective mats to avoid any scratches
  • Also, place entry or doormats at the entrance to the room to avoid tracking outdoor dirt and soil across your flooring.

Luxury Vinyl Cleaning Solutions

If your flooring needs more than just a dry surface clean, use a manufacturer-approved cleaning solution like Shaw R2X Hardsurface Floor Cleaner and follow their guidelines. For most approved cleaning solutions, you just need to spray and wipe dry without any unnecessary rinsing or washing. You can purchase the Shaw R2X Hardsurface Floor Cleaner from our store location, or order online.

Luxury Vinyl Stain Removal

For common household spills, wipe with a micro-cloth, and once dry, follow up with a manufacturer-approved hard surface floor cleaner to keep your floors looking like new! When it comes to those tougher household messes like wax, gum, or nail polish, make sure you’re first consulting with your manufacturer guidelines for approved stain removal tips.
