Vinyl Care

Follow these tips for care and cleaning of your vinyl.

Use non-staining mats on your vinyl floor. Do not put rubber-backed, latex-backed or coco fiber mats on your floor because they will stain or damage the surface.

Initial care and cleaning

Keep traffic light during the first 24 hours after installation so the adhesive can dry properly. If your floor has been seamed, avoid stepping on the seam sealer for 24 hours so it can dry undisturbed. Avoid scrubbing or washing your floor for at least 3 days after installation. Clean any adhesive residue with a clean, white cloth dampened with mineral spirits.

Caution: Mineral spirits, lighter fluid, painter’s naphtha and isopropyl alcohol are flammable liquids. Take all precautions listed on the container.

Routine cleaning

Occasionally damp mop the floor with the manufacturer’s recommended cleaner to remove dirt build-up. As a substitute, 2-3 capfuls of clear, non-sudsy ammonia in one gallon of water may be used. Using more than the recommended amount of cleaner may leave a dull film. See your flooring retailer for more information.
