Once you have your new luxury vinyl plank or tiles in place, you’ll want to keep them as clean as possible to ensure their intended lifespan and stunning good looks for as long as possible. In today’s post, we'll discuss the best ways to clean your vinyl flooring, so read along for information that will help you for years to come.

Luxury vinyl tile and plank are easier to clean than you think

Since luxury vinyl tile and plank products are durable and completely waterproof, they are easy to clean. Sometimes all it takes is a broom to clean up loose dirt and debris and a damp mop to keep these surfaces looking great for many years.

However, specific luxury vinyl-friendly commercial cleaners can be used if further cleaning is needed for a stubborn mess or stain. We’ll be happy to provide a list of approved cleaners for your specific brand.

We are often asked if steam cleaning is a feasible luxury vinyl method, but we advise against it. The product is indeed, in itself, entirely waterproof, but the high heat levels can damage the flooring and make the adhesives release, causing many problems.
