Sheet Vinyl & Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT)

Sheet Vinyl

 

Vinyl flooring, often called resilient flooring, combines dramatic, authentic looking visuals like slate, limestone, sisal, wood, and linen, with durability and easy maintenance.

Vinyl flooring is so versatile that no other flooring can matches its wide variety of patterns, styles, colors and textures. Modern vinyl floors can be installed by either gluing the floor down or it can be laid down loose. If you haven’t looked at vinyl flooring lately, you owe it to yourself to come in and see today’s new vinyl floors.

SHEET VINYL AND LVT (LUXURY VINYL TILE) FLOOR CARE

Whenever possible, place a non-staining doormat outside each entrance to your home to prevent dirt, sand, grit, and other substances such as oil, asphalt, and driveway sealer from being tracked on to your floor. Do not use latex-backed, rubber-backed, or coco-fiber mats on your vinyl floor.

Sweep

Sweep your vinyl floor regularly (at least once a week).

latex-based driveway sealers

Vinyl manufacturers recommend the use of latex-based driveway sealers to minimize the potential staining from asphalt sealer tracking.

avoid sunlight

To avoid sunlight causing your floor to fade or discolor you should always close your curtains or blinds where extreme sunlight hits the floor.

Replace all narrow furniture rests

Replace all narrow furniture rests with wide-bearing ones. Support furniture with wide-bearing, non-staining floor protectors. It is recommended that all furniture protectors be at least one inch in diameter, made of non-pigmented, hard plastic, and rest flat on the floor. Non-staining felt protectors are also acceptable. Casters with a minimum 3/4″ flat surface width or floor protectors are recommended for all moveable furniture. Metal floor protectors are generally not recommended.

protect the floor if you need to move heavy objects

Always use strips of 1/4″ plywood or sheets of underlayment as runways to protect the floor if you need to move heavy objects such as your refrigerator across your vinyl floor. Runways should always be used even with furniture dollies, or even if the heavy objects are equipped with wheels or rollers.

Wipe up spills

Wipe up spills immediately to help prevent stains. The longer a stain sits, the tougher it will be to remove from the surface.

use of a polish

To restore the hi-gloss on a urethane vinyl floor most manufacturers do recommend the use of a polish. Do not use paste wax and do not try to buff a urethane vinyl floor. Be sure the floor is thoroughly clean and completely dry before applying the manufacturer’s recommended floor polish. If all the dirt is not removed prior to applying the polish, the dirt will become trapped underneath.

slippery when wet

Vinyl floors can become slippery when wet. Use extreme caution when walking on a wet floor.

floor polish

Some of the newer vinyl floors have a low-gloss finish and the use of a floor polish may make the floor shiny.

use manufacturer’s recommended floor cleaner

To prevent dirt build up occasionally mop your floor with the manufacturer’s recommended floor cleaner. Follow the instructions on the bottle and do not over-mix or your cleaning solution may leave a dulling film. Avoid soaps, cleaning powders, and detergent products as they will leave a dulling film. Although the no-rinse cleaners say they do not need rinsing, rinsing will provide the better shine. If you do notice a dulling film after cleaning the floor, try a thorough rinse with warm, clean water.

It may be necessary after several applications of polish to strip the entire floor and reapply a new coat of polish. This may also be necessary for excessive dirt and grime build-up. Use the manufacturer’s recommended heavy duty floor cleaner and stripper product. Once the floor is thorough cleaned, rinse and dry before applying a new coat of polish. High traffic areas may require more than one application of polish. Allow polish to dry “tack-free” between coats.
