Dirt & Debris

To remove dirt and debris from your vinyl floors, the best method of maintenance is sweeping. When and if this debris settles on your vinyl, it can lead to scratching, scraping, and a grungy appearance over time. Vinyl floors are tough on water, spills, stains, and so on, but it is always in your best interest to protect your vinyl floors as able. And sweeping is an excellent form of floor protection.

Vinyl is able to handle spills, and liquid messes superbly, so long as you act fast after they occur. When and if a liquid mess transpires, we know it will obtain a cloth and absorb the substance quickly. The longer you wait to do this, the more likely it is that the substance will damage your vinyl flooring and the subflooring beneath. Just because vinyl floors are waterproof that doesn't mean that messes should be allowed to sit for an extended period. For difficult-to-navigate liquid messes, consult your manufacturer.
