How to clean vinyl floors
More recent versions of vinyl flooring are made of 100 percent polymer materials. It can be fully immersed in water for long periods, dried out, then reused, without damaging the floors. But obviously on one’s floor type of any sort, the goal is to clean it, not just drown it in water. (However, this is good to know for liquid spills.) With laminate floors, excess moisture will often result in bubbling.
Vinyl flooring can dry the way other floors, such as tile, do. For the most part, any kind of regular cleaner used on hardwood, tile or vinyl floors should work fine. However, if you’re concerned about cleaning vinyl floors, choose a very small spot of the floor and pay attention to the following things: 1) the color remains the same (not chalky); 2) the texture remains the same; 3) the stain actually lifts from the floor instead of just getting wet.
Find safe cleaning products
Unlike laminate flooring, which should be cleaned via dry mopping and very minimal wet cleaning, vinyl flooring can be cleaned using a wet mop and common cleaning products. On hard-to-remove stains, popular heavy-duty products can be used, too. Because of the material though, it is important to sweep regularly and keep dust and dirt away, as much as wet mopping.
However, keep in mind that lower-quality vinyl flooring may delaminate. Self-stick vinyl flooring tiles may also loosen over time. Be particularly careful with moving heavy furniture across the floor such as couches and dining room tables because the cleaners can get caught in between paneling if it somehow separates.
(Sometimes a simple kick with the back of your foot will snap the panels back into place.) Overall though, vinyl flooring is a tough material that can last quite some time on heavy-traffic areas like living rooms, bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms, lobbies, bathrooms, etc. Bob Vila also recommends a few drops of baby oil, vinegar and water solution to make the vinyl wood shine.
Can you use a steam mop on vinyl plank flooring
Although you don’t have to steam a vinyl floor to keep it clean, vinyl flooring is water-resistant and waterproof. Sheet vinyl, vinyl tile and luxury vinyl flooring do well in full bathrooms and damp locations (ex. basements).
Thicker solid core vinyl flooring will look more like wood than other types. Be sure to pay attention to cleaning ingredients to confirm that its appearance can consistently stay as is. Chalkier materials and streaking materials can affect its appearance.
Can you use Swiffer on vinyl flooring
As with any other dry or wet mop brand, Swiffer cleaning options can be used on vinyl floors. They are made to handle damp and wet areas such as bathrooms and kitchens. But as with any other room, including tile floors in bathrooms, proper ventilation makes sure that the floors can dry in an adequate amount of time. If basement or bathroom windows are available, this will expedite the drying process to make sure the floors are both clean and dry efficiently. The brand of the wet/dry mop doesn’t matter so much as whether it is compatible with your floor.
If you’re still not sure whether you want a laminate floor or vinyl floor (and have the option to choose and/or replace the two), decide where you want the flooring to be. Areas with lots of moisture and water spills (i.e. bathrooms and kitchens) do much better with vinyl flooring.
There’s no rule that says you cannot have both laminate and vinyl flooring, but if you don’t need both, you may as well go with vinyl. It works in all rooms, from home offices to basements. However, know ahead of time that vinyl flooring tends to be heavier and less comfortable to walk on than laminate floors, specifically on prior ceramic or concrete flooring.
But if you’re a stickler for footies or walking in shoes (especially in a more formal or construction environment), this will not be a problem. Neither option is eco-friendly and does not decompose in landfills the way that bamboo, wood and linoleum does. But the goal is to keep the flooring around for a longer amount of time, so enjoy it and preserve it as much as possible with the best vinyl floor mop!
