Hanflor luxury vinyl flooring outperforms other flooring types in heat, sun, and water resistance, so you can live more and worry less. Thanks to its high durability and water resistance, luxury vinyl is exceptionally easy to keep clean and looking like new. Use these best practices for regular care and maintenance to extend the life of your floor even further:
•When cleaning vinyl flooring, use a soft bristle broom to remove loose dirt.
•Damp-mop as needed with clean water and a nonabrasive floor cleaner.
•Harsh cleaning chemicals should not be used on vinyl flooring.
Preventing Stains, Scuffs and Scratches
•Spills should be cleaned up immediately
•Wash the floor with nonabrasive floor cleaner
•Never push, pull, or drag furniture across vinyl floors. Always lift and carry
•Heavy furniture or appliances that are not moved often should be equipped with flat, non-staining floor protectors
•Avoid using a vacuum with a beater bar
•For spot stain treatment, use a diluted bleach solution that is 1 part bleach, 10 parts water
For extra protection, invest in high-quality floor mats for an extra layer of protection. Place the mats at entrances and exits to collect and trap corrosive substances that can be tracked in, such as dirt, sand, oil, grit, asphalt and even driveway sealer.
Cleaning Tactics to Avoid
The following cleaning products may cause additional damage to your vinyl flooring and should be avoided:
•Abrasive or mop and shine products
•Vacuum cleaner with a rotating beater bar
•Ammonia or bleaches*
*For spot treatment, a diluted 1/10 solution of bleach/water is tolerable for stain removal.
