Luxury vinyl tile and plank offer excellent options for appearance, durability, and lifespan, so they are easily a perfect choice for a wide variety of rooms throughout your home, if not all of them. They can even protect you against water damage, but what is the best way to clean these outstanding floors?
Luxury vinyl tile and plank cleaning facts
Both vinyl tile (LVT) and vinyl plank (LVP) offer excellent durability and lifespan, exceptionally if adequately cared for and maintained. It all starts with daily cleaning, consisting of either sweeping or dry mopping to remove dust, dirt, and debris, followed by a damp mop.
A microfiber mop is your best option and can remove more buildup than a dry mop by itself. You can also use manufacturer-approved solutions to get a cleaner surface than water mopping alone.
It's essential to avoid steam cleaners or any tool that uses excessive amounts of heat or steam. While these floors are often waterproof, the high temperature can cause many problems for your floors, including warping, buckling, and cupping in areas most affected by the heat and steam.
To further protect your floors, be sure to use runners, floor mats, or area rugs in high-traffic areas. This will trap and hold much of the dirt that otherwise winds up on your floor’s surface.
