Luxury vinyl tiles and their easy maintenance is what makes them such a practical and durable option for every living in your home. At Frank’s, we know all the tips and tricks to keep your LVT looking beautiful at all times.
Cleaning luxury vinyl floor tiles is simple and quick if done regularly and correctly from day one. All you need to do is ensure you have the right cleaning equipment at hand to guarantee flawless results!
How to clean LVT
Firstly, get a good quality vacuum cleaner that is perfect for tackling hard floors, or alternatively use a brush to sweep up the loose debris.
After this, you will need a well wrung out mop or a damp cloth to wipe the surface. It is important not to fully wet the surface of the floor because this will make it harder to clean.
We recommend washing your luxury vinyl tiles once or twice a week depending on the use of the room because this will avoid any stains settling into the floor surface. To keep your floor looking brand new, mop up these spills as and when they happen.
If you are considering using a cleaning fluid on your LVT we emphasise the importance of checking the label to ensure it is compatible with luxury vinyl tiles and also safe for children and pets, if this applies to your household.
How to remove stains from LVT
Stains can sometimes be tricky to remove from flooring, especially kitchen floors which are prone to greasy spills and splashes.
To clean LVT, use a damp cloth with hot soapy water to help lift the stain. Remember to drain the cloth of most of its water to avoid soaking the floor.
After, if the mark is still visible, use a soft bristled brush in gentle circular movements. Once the stain is gone, wipe over with a clean damp cloth and fresh clean water.
How to keep your tiles looking new
General cleaning and maintenance is required to keep luxury vinyl tiles looking pristine. However, there are a few other things we’d recommend at Frank’s to keep your flooring looking its best year-round.
- Use doormats at all entryways in your home to trap dirt and moisture. Just remember to clean these mats regularly!
- Keep curtains and blinds closed where possible during peak sunlight hours to prevent discolouring of the tiles. This isn’t a problem if the LVT you have chosen features UV protection.
