Maintaining and Caring for Your New Vinyl Floors

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

Vinyl flooring is an incredibly versatile, durable choice and one of the easiest to maintain. Here are some tips for caring for your new vinyl floors.

– Don’t disturb the sealed seams immediately after installation; try not to walk on the area too much for the first 24 hours so that the adhesive can have a chance to dry

– If you find any adhesive residue or factory printing on the surface of the vinyl, just wipe it down with a clean white cloth dampened with mineral spirits

– If you’re moving furniture around, place Glide Guard or plywood on the floor and walk objects across the panels to avoid scratches

– You should also avoid scratches by putting felt pads on the bottom of furniture

– If parts of your floor get direct sunlight, close your curtains or blinds; heat and sunlight can cause vinyl to fade or discolour

– Let us know right away if you see any seam openings; if you wait, we may not be able to repair them

– It’s normal to have visible seams as long as the vinyl is cut straight and buts together

– Sweep or vacuum regularly so avoid build up of dirt and grit, which can scratch your new floors; don’t use a beater bar vacuum

– Only use manufacturer recommended floor cleaners, which can be found at Bigelow Flooring:

– Armstrong Once’n’Done
– Congoleum Bright’n’Easy
– Hagesan Vinyl Cleaner
