Highly durable, easy to maintain, and perfect for any room, vinyl is a fantastic choice for any property. Below, we’ll highlight some key tips for keeping your planks looking their best for years to come. Read on to learn more!

Affordable Luxury

Vinyl planking is a synthetic flooring option that is designed to recreate many of today’s most stylish options without breaking the bank. The ability to flawlessly mimic hardwood, masonry, marble and other high end products has made LVT an incredibly in demand product and makes it easy to create the home of your dreams at a much more affordable cost. Add on the fact that vinyl is incredibly easy to install, and it’s no wonder that homeowners are such big fans!

How to Care For Vinyl

As we mentioned, one of the most appealing aspects of vinyl flooring is the fact that it is exceptionally easy to maintain and care for. With a simple upkeep schedule in place, you can keep your planks looking brand new for years to come. A sample routine might look something like this:

Day to Day

The biggest asset on your side when it comes to maintaining your floors is prevention. Staying on top of dirt and grime before it has a chance to build up will go a long way to avoiding premature wear and tear and to sustaining your floors for the long term. Routine sweeping, dusting, and spot treating are a must and can be done in as little as a few minutes daily.

Deeper Cleaning

Every so often, you’ll need to give your floors a little extra care to remove any dirt and grime that you may have missed previously, especially if you have little ones or pets. Once a month or so, you’ll want to gently mop your vinyl planks with warm water and microfibre cloth to avoid scratching the finish. Never use wax or abrasive scrubbers as they can permanently break the seal of the vinyl’s finish and cause lasting damage.
