Luxury vinyl flooring requires proper care and maintenance just as much as any other type of floor. If you live in the States, you know that caring for and maintaining your floor should also align with the seasons.

You Should Clean and Maintain Your Floor All Year Long

You might wait for winter to finish to do actual maintenance on your luxury vinyl floor, but regular cleaning is essential to ensure that it’ll last for a long time.

Daily Cleaning Routine

  • Sweep or vacuum your luxury vinyl floor regularly to prevent dirt and dust from accumulating. You might want to do this every day, especially if you keep pets around.
  • Deal with spills and stains immediately by wiping your LVP or LVT floor with a mop. You could also protect your floors with rugs to catch those spills.
  • Use a cleaner that is made specifically for LVP or LVT floors. Do NOT use harsh chemicals on your luxury vinyl floor because they will strip the finish or even the vinyl.

How to Clean LVP/LVT Floor Per Season

Spring

Luxury vinyl flooring can be cleaned with occasional mopping. Find a manufacturer’s recommended cleaner to remove dirt.

Summer

To keep your LVP or LVT floors safe from the summer heat, keep your home’s temperature within 86 degrees. Cover your sliding glass doors and windows since they can act like magnifying glasses, making the floor even hotter. Adding blinds or curtains to your windows can help keep your LVP or LVT floor from fading.

Fall

Taking good care of your luxury vinyl floors includes preventing them from becoming discolored, stained, or worn out. Sticking to a routine of regular cleaning, applying protection, and doing regular inspections will keep it in great condition the entire season.

Use cleaners if you’re dealing with mildew during this season. Use a pH-balanced cleaner and vinyl protectant to prevent discoloration and stains.

Winter

Place a waterproof mat or tray inside entrances to collect snow or ice from shoes and boots. Use a vinyl-safe salt remover solution to clean any salt residue that may be tracked inside.

Keep the indoor temperature above 60°F to prevent the floor from becoming too brittle. Use a microfiber mop and a vinyl-specific cleaner to avoid damaging your flooring.
