How to care for your vinyl flooring – The Dos and Don’ts


Although vinyl flooring is extremely durable and can stand up to quite a lot of abuse, there are a few Do’s and Don’ts to ensure that your floors stay beautiful for as long as possible:


Cleaning your vinyl flooring:


  • Wipe up and clean spills as soon as they happen – never leave spills on the floor as they may cause yellowing or stains.
  • Clean your floors thoroughly on a regular basis (once a week at least), to remove dirt and grime that can damage the floors and cause stains. Vacuum or sweep the floor first to remove loose dirt, and follow with a wet mop and suitable detergent.
  • Remove stubborn dirt by scrubbing with a non-abrasive cloth or sponge and some cleaning detergent.
  • Use natural, soft detergents to clean your vinyl floors, and no oil-based or abrasive detergents.
  • Don’t use any wax or polished on your vinyl floors. Vinyl floors are non-porous, meaning that the wax or polish will stay on the surface, collecting dust, and can cause the floors to decolour or go yellow after a period of time.

Preventative care for your vinyl flooring


  • Place protective pads under the feet of heavy furniture, opt for felt rather than rubber that can cause stains.
  • Place doormats at entrances so that most of the loose dirt can be wiped off instead of brought into the house. Gritty sand is terrible for any flooring type, and can cause scratch marks and dull floors.
  • Try to keep heaters and ashes from fireplaces off the vinyl floors. Continuous exposure to heat can cause damage to your vinyl flooring.
  • Take extreme caution when moving heavy furniture across the floor, not to cause scuff marks or tears. It is best to place plywood panels on the floors to assist with moving heavy furniture.
