Keeping your new luxury vinyl flooring clean is one of the critical ways to extend the lifespan as far as possible, up to about 20 years or so if professionally installed. Today, we will briefly discuss the steam cleaning option and whether that's a good choice for this product, so read along to find out more.
The best cleaning methods for luxury vinyl flooring
Steam cleaning is not recommended for luxury vinyl tile or vinyl plank flooring. While the products offer complete waterproof protection, the extensive heat levels from steam are never a good combination with the vinyl in these floors.
When subjected to high heat and damp steam, vinyl can be damaged in ways that are not repairable in many cases. And you risk voiding your manufacturer’s warranty, as most advise against the use of steam cleaning in any fashion.
A damp mop is best for luxury vinyl flooring
Instead of steam cleaning, be sure to end every day by sweeping or vacuuming up any loose debris and finishing with a damp mop with cleaner added for big messes. Then, please stop by and speak with us about your cleaning needs. We will help you find the perfect options for your luxury vinyl flooring and requirements.
