Protecting your vinyl flooring is a great way to get the most out of your Sugar Land home investment. Vinyl flooring is one of the more durable types of flooring surfaces available, and in many cases more affordable than traditional types of flooring. Thanks to advancements in technology and design, modern vinyl flooring can successfully closely mimic other types of flooring, like hardwood, stone and concrete flooring finishes. Though vinyl flooring can be less expensive and also very durable, there are still several things to keep in mind when caring for vinyl floors.
VINYL FLOORING CARE TIPS FOR YOUR SUGAR LAND HOME
- Pay attention to the finish that your vinyl flooring comes with. Follow your manufacturerâ€™s recommendations for using any type of polish, as it could generate an unexpected result, or even be unnecessary for achieving the care and look intended for your specific type of vinyl flooring.
- Over time, due to dirt and grime buildup, if you polish the floor it may become necessary to strip the floor of its finish and re-add a coat of polish. Be sure to use the manufacturerâ€™s recommended type of stripping and polish products. Also make sure to follow their instructions for stripping and polishing the floor to ensure that you don’t miss a step and accidentally damage your vinyl floors.
- Most vinyl flooring manufacturers recommend the use of polish for maintaining your floors look and long lifespan. Be sure to use the manufacturerâ€™s recommended type and or brand of polish. Avoid using paste wax. If you have a urethane vinyl floor, don’t try to buff it. Also be sure that the floor is clean and dry prior to applying to manufacturer’s recommended polish.
- It’s best to clean the floor on a regular basis with the manufacturerâ€™s recommended floor cleaner. Avoid using detergents and soaps, as they can damage your floorâ€™s finish. If you choose to use a non-rinse product, it doesn’t require rinsing, but rinsing can enhance your vinyl flooring shine.
