VINYL CARE & MAINTENANCE

Want to know how to properly care for your new luxury vinyl floors from Cherry City Interiors & Design? Consult this guide compiled by our flooring experts.

A NOTE ABOUT WATERPROOF VINYL

Many of today’s luxury vinyl floors are 100% waterproof, making them a low-maintenance flooring choice that works well in basements, bathrooms, dens, and kitchens alike. One thing to remember is that just because a surface is waterproof, that doesn’t mean you should allow liquid spills to sit for long periods of time. Promptly wipe up any messes as soon as possible.

Establish a maintenance routine everyone can follow!

REGULAR CLEANING

For daily upkeep, sweep, dust mop, or use a manufacturer-approved vacuum cleaner without a beater bar.

FURNITURE PADS

Place all heavy furniture on protective mats or pads to avoid scratches & dents.

INVEST IN DOORMATS

Place small rugs or doormats at all entryways to prevent guests from tracking outdoor dirt & debris across your floors.

DEALING WITH SPILLS

If your floors need more than just a dry surface clean, use a manufacturer-approved cleaning solution and follow its guidelines. For most approved cleaning solutions, you’ll just need to spray the affected area and wipe your surface dry without any unnecessary rinsing or washing.

Common household spills can be mopped up with a micro-cloth and, once dry, followed up with a manufacturer-approved hard surface floor cleaner to keep your floors looking great! For tougher household messes like wax, gum, or nail polish, consult with your manufacturer’s guidelines for approved stain removal tips.
