Maintaining and Caring for Your New Groutable Luxury Vinyl Tile Floors

Home / Cleaning Products / Maintaining and Caring for Your New Groutable Luxury Vinyl Tile Floors

Luxury vinyl tile, or LVT as it’s known in the industry, can mimic the look of stone, wood, granite and other flooring, but with a smaller price tag. Make sure to follow these tips for maintaining its appearance and longevity.

– Grout haze is normal after initial install cleaning; try to limit how much you walk on the area for the first 24 hours so the grout has time to dry

– You are responsible for the final cleaning

– To clean, dilute vinyl cleaner and use with a cloth to remove any remaining leftover haze from the grout and buff dry with a soft cloth

– You should try to avoid cleaning the grout joints for the first five days after install, but never use grout haze cleaners

– You can walk on the tile immediately after install, but don’t roll anything heavy over the area for the first 72 hours

– Use wood panels when moving heavy furniture and appliances back into the room

– Don’t use beater bar vacuums

– Use floor protectors on all furniture

– You can buy these recommended cleaners at Bigelow Flooring:
