Once you choose the best luxury vinyl tile or plank, you'll want to know how to keep it clean. This helps these floors reach their intended lifespan easier.

There are specific ways to clean these floors that will yield better results than others. Here are three great tips to help with your luxury vinyl cleaning needs.

1. Create a regular cleaning schedule

You'll want to clean regularly based on your specific activity levels and lifespan. This includes sweeping and following up with a damp mop as needed.

Some areas might need more attention, especially with pets or children. LVP flooring pairs well with runners or area rugs in your busiest spaces.

2. Use non-abrasive cleaners and tools

Some cleaners can be very abrasive, which isn't suitable for your luxury vinyl surfaces. Be sure to choose only cleaners your flooring manufacturer, or we recommend.

You'll also want to refrain from steam cleaning for these products. While they are 100% waterproof, excessive heat and pressure can cause damage.

3. Chose the most durable materials for your household

If you already know your home is busy and active, choose luxury vinyl plank and tile that will stand up to the need. Thicker cores, wear, and protective layers can keep your floors looking great.

If you're unsure about what you need, speak with an associate. We'll make sure your product matches your requirements.
