Four cleaning tips for waterproof flooring

Four cleaning tips for waterproof flooring

Choosing and installing the best waterproof floors in Salem, OR, is only part of your total flooring experience. Once these products are in place, proper care can ensure the best lifespan and visuals for up to 20 years.

When waterproof flooring is cleaned and maintained regularly, it performs better, looks better, and lasts longer, even in busy, active households. Here are four tips to help you make the most of your new floors once they're in place.

1.      Sweep and mop regularly. Removing dirt and debris is necessary to ensure the best performance of these floors, so daily sweeping and damp mopping of your waterproof floors is essential.

2.      Clean up spills and messes as soon as they happen. Quickly cleaning up spills is the best way to ensure no chemical reactions occur on the surface of your floors, which could create permanent stains or marring.

3.      Use only recommended cleaning solutions and tools. Manufacturers suggest using non-abrasive cleaners and tools, and we can recommend the perfect options for your flooring choice.

4.      Never use a steam cleaner. These cleaners use lots of heat of pressure to offer a deep clean, but both can be detrimental to your waterproof flooring, so never use a steam cleaner on your luxury vinyl.
