Vinyl Care and Maintenance
How to care for your vinyl floor
- Regardless of what kind or size spills are, it is always important to clean them up as soon possible. Most vinyl floors can handle most household accidents without too much damage but any liquid left on the floor for an extended period will result in permanent staining
- If you own a vinyl floor, it's important to periodically clean and maintain them. If your cleaning solution has been specifically formulated for this type of material then use that specific product according with care instructions on package - but if not be sure not use chemicals!
- Make sure to sweep, dust or vacuum your floor daily so it's clean and free from dirt.
- The hardest thing about maintaining a clean home is figuring out what not to do. Steer clear of detergents, vinegar and abrasive cleaners like mop-and shine products that may leave an unwanted residue on your flooring.
- Never use paste wax or solvent-based polishes because they can cause damage if left too long in one place.
- When vacuuming, do not use a beater bar because it can damage the floor surface.
- It's important not to use highly abrasive scrubbing tools, otherwise you'll wear down the finish on your surface.
- Abrasive materials can really damage a good quality finish and ruin it for life - don't make this mistake!
Immediately after installation
- You should maintain room temperature at 65 degrees Fahrenheit for 48 hours after installation is completed, which assures proper curing and bonding of products so you can enjoy comfortable conditions as soon as possible!
- It is important to let your floor dry for 24 hours after applying the adhesive. You should also avoid washing any installations of furniture or traffic for 48+ hours or so as not disrupt its bond with other materials beneath them, which could lead to disaster!
- It is critical that you allow your seams to dry properly and seal them for 8 hours after application. If this step isn't followed, then permanent damage could result from any disturbance in the process before they're ready!
- When cleaning vinyl tile, use a damp sponge or cloth to wipe off any information that may be printed on the face. Be careful not to wipe across seams and don't rinse with water because this can cause bubbles in your installation.
Proactive protection for your floor
- The best way to protect your furniture from scuffs and scratches is by using floor protectors. We recommend that you use a thick, heavy duty pad for every larger piece of equipment or item in order to avoid any unwanted marks on the surface underneath it.
- Moving heavy furniture is hard enough without adding potentially dangerous consequences like scratches or tears to your floors. To avoid this, simply lay down plywood during the move and walk around with whatever you're carrying - it'll be safe!
- The double wheeled casters can be a great option for those who don't want to damage their floors. We recommend these over single wheelers because they're less likely to break things when rolling across uneven ground or furniture!
- To prevent dirt and grit from entering your home, place a walk-off mat at the entrance. We do not recommend rubber or latex backed mats because they can permanently stain flooring with an antioxidant chemical that will discolor over time if left untreated! Instead opt for vinyl tiles which are easy to clean as well as nonsticthusiant rugs made of durable materials like cotton canvas so it doesn't get damaged by rainwater while still providing protection against tracking in unwanted debris.
