Luxury Vinyl Tile

Luxury vinyl tile is one of the hottest trends in interior design. This versatile flooring option gives you all the great looks of more expensive flooring options with the durability that you would expect from vinyl tile. While the flooring is durable, you still need to be sure you’re using the correct methods for cleaning to maintain the beauty of your luxury vinyl tile flooring. Here are 3 tips to get you started.

1. Start Out Easy

The first few days after your flooring is installed are crucial, and experts recommend that you limit the amount of traffic for at least 24 hours. You should also refrain from mopping or otherwise cleaning the floor for the first few days. This lets everything settle and reduces the possibility of your flooring pulling up.

2. Clean Gently

While your luxury vinyl tile can handle a thorough cleaning, you want to be sure you’re not oversoaking the flooring. Vinyl tile could potentially loosen and peel if you have too much water or cleaning solution on it for a period of time. Clean spills up quickly with a soft cloth. Stay away from abrasive cleaners; finding solutions that are right for your specific flooring.

3. Keep Your Flooring Protected

Any floor can get scratches or scuffs over time but do the best you can to protect your luxury vinyl flooring by adding sliders to your furniture. Keep the colors brighter longer by keeping your blinds closed whenever possible. Sun can discolor or fade many of your interior floors and furniture over time.
