Top Tips for Cleaning Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Modern living requires things that are quick and easy, so when it comes to choosing new flooring for your home, luxury vinyl floor is the one option that really stands out. It provides a stylish, modern finish but does not compromise on practicality either.
Whether you’re moving into a new home or you fancy freshening up your current home with a new look, luxury vinyl flooring can drastically change the appearance of a room and is low maintenance and highly practical too.
So let’s take a look at the some top tips for keeping your new luxury vinyl flooring spick and span!

See To Spills ASAP

Leaving spills to lie on the surface of your laminate floor is a bad habit to get into as the spillage can seep through the joints and work it’s way under the flooring. So if you spot a spillage, it’s always best to wipe it up as soon as possible.

Entrance Mats

Moisture and dirt often enters the home via your footwear. The best way to avoid this being trodden into your home is to buy a doormat and encourage people to use it. This way you can leave all the dirt at your front door and your floor can remain intact!

Cleaning Products

It is best to avoid any bleach-based solutions which most cleaning products tend to have in them. The bleach can cause discoloration and leave a slippery film on the surface of the floor. Mixing your own vinegar solution of apple cider vinegar and hot water will lightly clean the vinyl and keep it looking fresh and clean.

Cleaning Method

Prepare – use a soft sweeping brush to collect and remove any loose dirt or dust from the surface. We recommend you don’t use a vacuum for this but if this is your prefered choice, turn off the beater bar and use the hose instead, as you would with upholstery, to protect the flooring from scratches and scuffs.
Wash – Use either a vinegar solution or a mild cleanser to mop the surface. Be careful not to drench the floor with too much water as this can ruin the glue bond between the vinyl and the floor, so wring out the mop thoroughly.
Dry – Simply leave it to air dry – so no walking across it!

Casters And Protector Pads

Any heavy pieces of furniture or fixtures on the floor are best kept on casters or protector pads. This will prevent any long-term indentation from ruining the effect of your vinyl floor.

If you follow these easy tips and pointers, you can keep spills, stains everyday wear and tear at bay, allowing you to revel in the beauty of your new luxury vinyl flooring!

I contacted Pyramid Carpets to supply and fit Karndean to my new refurbished narrow-boat based in Daventry. The estimator Paul and the fitter Mark carried out a magnificent job to a tight budget and within a short timescale. I am highly delighted with the finished floor. 

I wanted a new carpet for my lounge and found Pyramid carpets on the internet. I booked the choose at home service. The estimator arrived and provided me with a range of samples and ideas which I chose and had fitted within a couple of days. A very fast and efficient service from Pyramid Carpets, thanks. 

We chose Pyramid carpets to fit new carpets to our bedrooms and Hall, stairs & landing. The service was good and the fitter was very proffessional and did a great job. I will certainly be using Pyramid carpets again in the future. 

Fantastic service from start to finish, I would highly recommend Pyramid carpets.
