Sheet vinyl cleaning


Taking care of your sheet vinyl floors

Sheet vinyl flooring is one of the easiest floors to clean. Here are some simple things you can do to keep your floor looking beautiful and new.

Initial maintenance (within 24 hours of installation)

  • Keep traffic light during the first 24 hours so adhesive can dry properly.
  • If the floor has been seamed, avoid stepping on the seam sealer for 24 hours so it can dry undisturbed.
  • Avoid scrubbing or washing floor for at least three days after installation. Spot clean floor avoiding all seams.
  • Place mats at the entrances of your doors to keep debris of the floors.
  • When moving heavy furniture or appliances across the floor, always use wood or hardboard runways to protect the floor.

Routine maintenance (daily/weekly as needed)

  • Sweep your floor regularly (at least once a week) to remove loose dirt.
  • Prevent stains by wiping spills promptly.
  • Occasional mopping is recommended when dirt builds up and sweeping alone is not sufficient.
  • Use a solution of clear, non-sudsy ammonia based cleaner in one gallon of warm water. Using more than the
  • recommended amount of cleaning solution may leave a dulling film.
  • Do not use soap based detergent products as they leave a film that dulls the floors appearance.
  • Avoid using mats with rubber or latex backing as it could discolor the floor.
