Caring of vinyl floors

by Clean India Journal Editor
0 comment

Clean-up on dirt

  • Remove dust, sand and grit particles frequently by sweeping or vacuuming your vinyl floor.
  • Don’t use a vacuum with a beater bar as it may scratch your floor.
  • The attachments that come with your vacuum are useful to clean the edges or to get to hard-to- reach areas.
  • When sweeping or vacuuming does not remove the dirt, mop the floor with clean warm water.
  • Rinse the floor thoroughly with fresh water. If water alone does not clean the surface, use cleaning products recommended by the manufacturer.
  • If you are unable to determine the manufacturer’s recommendations, use one tablespoon of liquid dish washing detergent to one quart of water.
  • Or use one tablespoon of clear ammonia to one quart of lukewarm water. Make sure you rinse the surface to avoid leaving behind a film.
  • Finally, think prevention. Place non-staining, walk-off mats or rugs at every outside entry to your room.
  • This will help keep sand and grit from being tracked on to your floor in the first place.
  • Just be sure to avoid using rubber-backed mats or rugs as they can damage and potentially discolor your floor.
  • Instead use mats or rugs made especially for vinyl floors and remember to treat them accordingly.

How to clean up spills

  • For spots or spills, wipe them up immediately and use a clean cloth to wipe the cleaner onto the floor.
  • Make sure the floor’s manufacturer recommends the cleaner and that the product label indicates “self-cleaning,” meaning you will not get an accumulation of wax on your floor.
  • Rinse the spot or spill area thoroughly and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
  • Avoid using abrasive scrubbing tools as they will leave scratches.
  • Never use abrasive cleaners, soaps, paste waxes or solvents on your vinyl floor.
  • Use the manufacturer’s recommended floor polish to restore your vinyl floor to its original gloss level.
  • If you purchased a PVC vinyl floor you should consider placing 2-3 coats of the manufacturer’s recommended floor polish on the floor immediately.
  • Any vinyl floor with a PVC wearlayer will show scuffs, scratches and other marks very easily. By adding the coats of floor polish, you will make the floor easier to maintain.
