Spring is in the air!
With longer days full of sunshine on the way, it’s time to say goodbye to winter and embrace warmer weather. While the changing of the seasons is an exciting time, property owners know that battling the changing elements can often pose a unique challenge when it comes to keeping your flooring in top shape. Fortunately for those with vinyl tile, springtime maintenance can be easy. Learn how to keep your vinyl looking its best all season long with our tips below!
The Springtime Challenge
Keeping your floors looking their best requires specific care from season to season, but springtime in particular can be challenging. With sudden swings in temperature and climate a staple of this time of year, it can be hard to predict what kind of environment you’ll face on a day to day basis. In general, the biggest culprits that can cause damage to your floors are:
You guessed it! As the snow begins to melt, mud becomes an unfortunate factor to contend with, and can easily enter the home if you’re not careful. Help avoid build-up by placing mats at entry points to your home, removing shoes, and wiping the paws of any furry family members.
Increased moisture on the ground means that your floors can be at risk if you don’t take proper care when entering or leaving your home. While vinyl tile is fairly moisture resistant, it’s still important to remember to promptly mop up any spills and avoid prolonged exposure to liquids as much as possible.
Grit and Debris
Despite being scratch resistant, the increased presence of grit, particularly sand leftover from the roads, can put your tile at risk of developing scratches. Sweep or vacuum once a week to reduce your chance of damage, as well as keep your floors looking their best.
One of the best parts about having luxury vinyl tile in your home is knowing how low maintenance it is to maintain. While you may have to put in a little extra work during the spring season, you’ll be back to your regular routine in no time!
