This makes it a great flooring choice for bathrooms, dens, and kitchens. While many manufacturers offer water-resistant technology built into the plank and tile finish, it is still important to wipe away water spills as quickly as possible.

Our flooring experts at Metro Flooring & Design put together the following tips on how to care for your new luxury vinyl tiles and planks.

Care and Maintenance:

Frequent care & maintenance of your luxury vinyl tiles and planks can easily be built into your overall home cleaning routine!

  • Daily upkeep should involve sweeping, dust mopping or vacuuming with a manufacturer-approved cleaner without a beater bar.
  • Place all heavy furniture on protective mats to avoid any scratches and place entry or doormats at the entrance to the room to avoid tracking outdoor dirt and soil across your flooring.

If your flooring needs more than just a dry surface clean, use a manufacturer-approved cleaning solution and follow their guidelines. For most approved cleaning solutions, you just need to spray & wipe dry without any unnecessary rinsing or washing.

When it comes to those common household spills, wipe away with a micro-cloth and, once dry, follow up with a manufacturer-approved hard surface floor cleaner to keep your floors looking great! For tougher household messes like wax, gum, or nail polish, consult with your manufacturer guidelines for approved stain removal tips.

Below is a list of additional care and maintenance tips that our team of experts at Metro Flooring & Design put together. It also includes stain removal resources to help keep your luxury vinyl tile and plank flooring looking beautiful:
