Premoda vinyl is fuss-free and low maintenance, it will stay looking great for many years and only require little upkeep. There are a few things you need to do to keep it looking its best. Find advice and top tips in our care guide below.
Keeping your vinyl flooring clean is relatively hassle free with a small amount of regular upkeep. Use a soft brush or vacuum to remove loose debris, dust and dirt.
As vinyl flooring is non-absorbent, liquids will sit on the surface in puddles but this can damage the floor if left for long periods of time, as well as being a potential slip hazard. Wipe spillages immediately and use a well wrung out mop or damp cloth to wash the surface, ensuring it dries out completely before walking on it again.
Remove any stains with warm water and a light soap. For tougher stains, bicarbonate of soda could be used.
It’s advisable to only use pet and child-safe cleaning products, and always opt for natural ingredients, where possible.
Do not use abrasive materials on vinyl flooring as this can cause permanent damage to the surface.
Always read the label before using cleaning products on vinyl flooring as some chemicals may not be suitable.
Vinyl flooring is low maintenance, but we’ve compiled a few expert care tips to help you keep your flooring looking it’s best. While it should be resistant to most of the marks and indentations caused by heavy furniture, you still need to be cautious.
- Remove all debris before installation to reduce any damage or indentations. Sweep and vacuum the flooring to remove any leftover dust following the installation.
- Keep sharp objects away from the surface and avoid dragging anything over the floor. Clean the surface regularly to remove debris to avoid damage to your vinyl over long periods of time.
- Ensure all furniture legs are smooth or use furniture protectors on feet to ensure your vinyl isn’t marked.
- Fit felt covers to casters and furniture feet for extra cushioning that will help protect the vinyl surface.
- Never push, pull or drag heavy furniture across your vinyl flooring as this can scratch and mark the surface. Always lift or wheel in large furniture items to prevent scuffing.
- After long periods of time of vinyl coming into contact with rubber, a chemical reaction can leave a permanent yellow stain at the point of contact. These stains cannot be removed through cleaning, so it’s important your vinyl floor does not come into sustained contact with rubber. Items such as bicycle and pram wheels, rubber backed mats and rugs, shoe soles can cause staining, so do not leave these standing on your vinyl flooring for prolonged periods.
